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.

Five Little Owls

Five little owls on a dark, dark night.
Five little owls are quite a sight.
Five little owls. Are you keeping score?
One flies away and that leaves four.
Four little owls as happy as can be.
One flies away and that leaves three.
Three little owls calling "Who, Who, Who"
One flies away and that leaves two.
Two little owls having lots of fun.
One flies away and that leaves one.
One little owl and we're almost done!
He flies away and that leaves none!

Owl Song [tune: "I'm a Little Teapot" ]

I'm a great big owl, as you can see.
I live high up in a tree.
All the other birds wake me up when they play,
Because I like to sleep in the day!

The Owl

There's a wide eyed owl. [thumbs and forefingers around eyes]
With a pointed nose, [forefinger makes a v at end of nose]
Two pointed ears, [forefingers extended up from head]
and claws for toes, [fingers and arms bent in front of chest]
When he sits up in the tree [point to imagined tree]
and he looks at you, [point at a friend]
he flaps his wings, [fold arms into arm pits and flap]
and he says "Whoo, Whoo"

The More We Read Together [Tune: “The 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.
