Preschool Storytime – June 27 – Crazy Pig Stories

We read a story about a clever pig and about a pig who learned to be true to himself.   We also sang and had fun with some action rhymes.  Here’s what we shared:

OPENING SONGS:

Welcome Everyone!

Welcome, welcome everyone,

Now we’re here, let’s have some fun!

First we clap our hands just so,

Then we bend and touch our toes,

Welcome, welcome everyone.

Now we’re here, let’s have some fun!

Clap Everybody and Say Hello!

Clap everybody and say hello,

Clap everybody and say hello,

Clap everybody and say hello,

No matter what the weather….

Stamp everybody and say hello,

Stamp everybody and say hello,

Stamp everybody and say hello,

No matter what the weather….

Repeat chorus with

(Wiggle, Jump, Sing…)

(Kathy Reid-Naiman – Sing Around the Sun CD)
