Below are some of the stories, songs & rhymes 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…)

ACTION SONG:

Roll Your Hands

Roll, roll, roll your hands as fast as fast can be

Do it now, let me see, do it now with me.

Clap, clap, clap your hands as loud as loud can be

Do it now, let me see, do it now with me.

Tap, tap, tap your feet as softly as can be

Do it now, let me see, do it now with me.

 

Shake, shake, shake your feet as quickly as can be

Do it now, let me see, do it now with me.

Roll, roll, roll your hands as fast as fast can be

Do it now, let me see, do it now with me.

FLANNELBOARD:

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
I think she’ll cry.

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
that wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly.
I think she’ll cry.

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird.
How absurd to swallow a bird.
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggle and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
I think she’ll cry.

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat.
Imagine that, she swallowed a cat.
She swallowed the cat, to catch the bird.
She swallowed the bird, to catch the spider….

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog.
My what a hog, to swallow a dog.
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat….

There was an old woman who swallowed a goat,
Just opened her throat! to swallow a goat.
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog…..

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow.
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow.
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat…..

I know an old lady who swallowed a horse…
She’s full of course!
