Preschool Storytime - Silly

Sit Down, Stand Up Song by Rick Goldin
Everybody stand up
Everybody sit down
Now stand up again
And turn around
Keep standing up
But not for long
Cause this is the sit down stand up sit down stand up sit down song

Ravioli (Tune: Alouette) - From Storytime Hooligans Clothing Storytime which references the King County Library System.

Ravioli, ravioli,
Ravioli, that’s the stuff for me.

Do you have it on your sleeve?
Yes, I have it on my sleeve.

On your sleeve?
On my sleeve.


(repeat with other body parts or articles of clothing, e.g. Do you have it on your chin? Do you have it in your shoes? etc.)

Felt Board

Stop, Slow, Go and Jump.
I call this Stop, Slow, Go and Jump Around.  I explain what red, yellow and green mean. Then we try not clapping, soft clapping and loud clapping.  Next I add the blue circle.  In the picture it looks green too but in real life its true blue. Blue means jump or whatever silliness you choose. We played this with toe tapping, need slapping and head patting.  

Borrowed from Scarf Songs and Rhymes for Storytime on Jbrary.

One Bright scarf - (adapted from 10 Little Fingers at Storytime Rocks)

One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow (hold in hand)
Wiggle it high (wiggle scarf above head)
Wiggle it low (wiggle scarf by knees)
Shake it fast (wiggle scarf quickly)
Shake it slow (wiggle scarf slowly)
Put it behind your back
Where did it go? (bring out empty hands)

Jack in the box sits so still
Will he come out
Yes he will

We Clap Our Hands Like This - tune farmer in the dell. Borrowed from Opening/Closing Songson Storytime Katie who borrowed it from Rhymes for Toddlers on Sunflower Storytime.

We clap our hands like this, We clap our hands like this
We clap our hands with all of our friends, We clap our hands like this.

We blow a kiss like this, We blow a kiss like this
We blow a kiss with all of our friends. We blow a kiss like this.

We wave goodbye like this.We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye with all our friends. 
We wave goodbye like this

I'm Being Swallowed by a Boa Constrictor by Shel Silverstein

I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor
And I don't like it very much!

Oh no, oh no, he swallowed my toe,
he swallowed my toe

Oh gee, oh gee, he's up to my knee,
he's up to my knee

Oh fiddle, oh fiddle, he's reached my middle,
he's reached my middle

Oh bleck, oh bleck, he's up to my neck,
he's up to my neck

Oh dread, oh dread, he swallowed my.... schlirppp!
