ECRR Storytime 7/19/16 and 7/20/16: Writing

Books read:
Itsy Bitsy Spider by Keith Chapman
More Bears by Kenn Nesbitt

ASL Sign of the Week: Write

Dancing Animals (from Librarian Lisa's Storytimes)
This is the way the bunnies hop,
The bunnies hop,
This is the way the bunnies hop,
So early in the morning!
(Other actions can include any other animal and accompanying movement. This song shows the importance of using our imagination when we write or listen to stories!) 

Bears are Sleeping (to the tune of "Frere Jacques") (from King County Library System)
Bears are sleeping,
Bears are sleeping (pretend to sleep)
In their lairs,
In their lairs.
Soon it will be springtime,
Soon it will be springtime.
Wake up bears! Wake up bears! (pretend to wake up)

We will Stomp by Mr. Eric and Mr Michael

Way up high in the apple tree (modified from Literary Commentary)
Way up high in the apple tree, (lift arms)
10 little apples smiled at me!
I shook that tree as hard as I could, (shake back and forth)
Down came the apple, (wave hands towards ground)
Boy was it good!

Roly Poly (from Reading with Red)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, (roll hands)
Up Up Up! (lift hands high)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly (roll hands)
Down Down Down! (stomp feet)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly,  (roll hands)
Clap Clap Clap! (clap hands)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, (roll hands)
Lap Lap Lap! (touch lap)

Dance your fingers (from Storytime Katie)
Dance your fingers up,
Dance your fingers down,
Dance your fingers side to side,
Dance them round and round,
Dance them on your shoulders,
Dance them on your head,
Dance them on your tummy,
And put them right to bed!

10 Little Bubbles (while popping bubbles, to the tune of "Ten Little Indians")
One little,
Two little,
Three little bubbles (count on fingers)
Four little,
Five little,
Six little bubbles.
Seven little,
Eight little,
Nine little bubbles.
Ten little bubbles in the air.

Craft: We colored a library themed coloring page.

Literacy tip of the week: When kids do fingerplays, color or pop bubbles, they are building the finger strength they will need as they learn to write.
