Park Outreach Storytime - Turtles

Turtle Fun

Stand Up Sit Down Song by Rick Goldin
Everybody stand up
Everybody sit down
now stand up again, and turn around
you can keep standing up, but not for long
cause this is the stand up, sit down, 

stand up, sit down song

stand up if you're ___ years old
and sit back down again

stand up if you're ___ years old

and sit back down with your friends
(repeat until I get everyone)

Felt Board

Fun with Friends at Storytime had a great turtle felt board and rhyme on their post Down By the Pond.  My creation based on her inspiration is the set of five turtles at the top of this post.  Or you can check out the original using the link above.  

I had a little turtle His name is Tiny Tim
I put him in the bathtub To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water He ate up all the soap
And now he's home sick in bed with bubbles in his throat!

Bubble bubble bubble , Bubble bubble pop
Bubble bubble bubble , Bubble bubble pop

I have a little turtle (put hands on top of one another)
He lives in a box (make box)
He swims in a puddle (swimming motion)
He climbs on the rocks (climbing motion)
He snapped at a mosquito (clap)
He snapped at a flea (clap)
He snapped at a minnow (clap)
And he snapped at me (clap)
He caught the mosquito (cup hands together)
He caught the flea (cup hands together)
He caught the minnow (cup hands together)
But he didn’t catch me! (shake finger “no”)

Down in the Meadow
Down in the meadow in a little bitty pool
Swam ten little turtles and a mama turtle too
“Swim!” said mama turtle “Swim like I do!”
so they swam and they swam all over the pool

Change to different action words Splash, dive, float, etc.

The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together
The happier we'll be
For your friends are my friends
and my friends are your friends
The more we get together 
The happier we'll be

The more we read together, together, together
the more we read together
the happier we'll be.
Read big books and small books
Read short books and tall books
The more we read together
the happier we'll be.
