Preschool Storytime - Mother's Day reboot

See what we did to celebrate Mother's Day in storytime last year. 

Opening
Hello Everybody, Yes Indeed by Carole Peterson from H.U.M.


Hello to your toes yes indeed yes indeed yes indeed
Hello to your toes yes indeed my darling
Knees – shoulders - friends


Books
Where's My Mommy by Carol Roth
A Present for Mom by Vivian French 

Songs
Milkshake by Wiggleworms (with shakers)
I’ve Got Two Hands by Peter and Ellen Allard from Sing it Say It Stamp It Sway it 3
Reach Up High by Exercise Party 

Egg Shakers
Bread and Butter Storytime Chant from Jbrary's Just Add Rhythm Sticks 
I edited the lyrics slightly to work with my hand bells.

Bread and butter
Marmalade and Jam
Let's tap our sticks as quiet as we can

...loud as we can
...slow as we can
...fast as we can
...high as we can
...low as we can
...nice as we can

Felt

Three little kittens, They lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,We sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost.
What! Lost your mittens,You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have no pie.

The three little kittens, They found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear, See here, see here,
Our mittens we have found.
What! Found your mittens,You darling kittens!
Then you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have some pie.



Rhyme
Tony Chestnut Knows I love you,
Tony knows, Tony knows, Tony Chestnut
Knows I love you, That's what Tony knows.

Toe knee chest nut (head)
Nose eye
Love (heart)
You (point to others)
Toe knee nose
Toe knee nose
Toe knee chest nut (head)
Nose eye
Love (heart)
You (point to others)
That's what toe knee nose.



Filmstrip

Are You My Mother


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

We clap our hands like this
We clap out 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.

Craft
For our craft I used the Ellison to punch out these small picture frames.  I made them in many colors and let the children make as many as they liked.  I made the one on the right and a child made the one on the right for me.

    1. We watched that as a filmstrip instead of reading it.
