6. TAKE TIME TO RHYME, SING AND PLAY WORD GAMES

Here are the rhymes and songs from today:

Welcome to Storytime! [tune: Twinkle, Twinkle]​

Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now we’re here, let’s have some fun.
First we’ll sing the ABC’s, then we’ll read and sing with me.
Welcome, welcome, everyone
Now we’re here, let’s have some fun.

Tigers and Lions [tune: London Bridge]​

Tigers and lions come out to play,
out to play, out to play,
Tigers and lions come out to play
in the jungle today.

Tigers stand up and lions sit down,
Tigers stand up and lions sit down,
Tigers stand up and lions sit down,
in the jungle today.

Tigers all walk and lions jog,
Tigers all walk and lions jog
Tigers all walk and lions jog,
in the jungle today.

Lions twist and tigers hop,
Lions twist and tigers hop
Lions twist and tigers hop,
in the jungle today.

Five little tigers

Five little tigers letting out a roar - One went a way, and Then there were four.
Four little tigers climbing in a tree - One went away, and Then there were three.
Three little tigers eating tiger stew - One went away, and Then there were two.
Two little tigers lying in the sun - One ran away, and Then there was one.
One little tiger, afraid to be a hero - He went away, and Then there was zero.

Tiger [tune: Twinkle, Twinkle]

Tiger, tiger in the night, With his eyes so burning bright.
Look and see his tail so long, Swish, swish, swish with a song.
Look and see his eyes so bright, Blink, blink, blinking in the light.
See his stripes upon his back, Just like so, orange and black.
Tiger, tiger in the night, With his eyes so burning bright.

The More We Read Together [Tune: More We Get Together]

The more we read together, together, together,
The more we read together the better it is!
'Cause reading and singing and talking together,
Is how you learn the six skills for reading by six.
