Family Storytime – 11/16/19 – Rabbits

Family Storytime – 11/16/19 – Rabbits

Why rabbits? I have no idea. I was just in a rabbit mood.

  1. Song – Top of the Morning

  2. This is a fun tune and great for waking up and doing a little stretching. It’s called Top of the Morning.

  3. Hello Rhyme – Say Hello

  4. This is a great rhyme for saying hello because we get to do it in so many fun ways!

  1. Song/Stretch – Can’t Sit Still! by Greg & Steve

  2. Greg and Steve is my jam now. Ha!


  4. I always teach three or four signs based on our theme in my family storytimes. Check out Signing Savvy or Baby Sign Language to learn these signs.

  5. Book – Big Bunny by Rowboat Watkins

  6. I thought this one was awesome and I cannot wait to try it out!

  7. Rhyme – Bunny Ears

  8. This maybe a little young for the group but it is a nice easy movement rhyme.

Bunny ears up (arms up) Bunny ears down (arms down) Bunny ears wiggling (wiggle arms) All around! (tickle baby)

  1. Activity/Song – Party Freeze Dance Song

  2. My little one loves this song, so I figured I’d give it a try for this crew.

  3. Rhyme – Little Bunny in a Hat

  4. This can be a finger play or a prop. It’s really fun if you can actually make the bunny come out of a hat.

Little bunny in a hat Sitting so still Will it come out? Yes it will! It looks to the left It looks to the right It looks straight ahead And pops out of sight. (

  1. Flannel/Prop –  Have you ever seen a bunny

  1. I created colored bunnies for a magnet board.

Have you ever seen a RED bunny, A RED bunny, a RED bunny, Have you every seen a RED bunny, Go hop, hop, hop, hop.

  1. Book – Bunny Fun by Sarah Weeks

  2. Sarah Weeks is one of my favorite picture book authors for reading aloud. Great rhyme and interactive stories. For this one I am going to have the kids yell out “Bunny Fun!”

  3. Rhyme –  Hop with me

  4. This one can be a lap bounce or an action rhyme.

Hop, hop, hop along Or bounce on someone’s knee Higher and higher and higher and higher Bunny-hop with me! Hop Like a Bunny

  1. Song/Shakers – Dance, Dance, Dance by Joanie Bartels

  2. We always have to break out our shakers at some point!

  3. Rhyme – If You’re Happy and You Know It

  4. I’ll include this one if we have time but with my speaker, I want to wrap up a little quicker than normal.

  5. Rhyme – Say Goodbye

  6. This is the same rhyme we started with, so the new guys are familiar with it by the end of storytime.

  7. Song – Clean It Up! by The Laurie Berkner Band

  8. Everyone helps put our shakers away.

  9. Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell my Friends by Music Together

  10. I always put this one on as I go to open the door. Its a nice, slow, peaceful song to wind down on.

How’d it go:

Haha! I don’t think everyone found Big Bunny as funny as I did, but I got a kick out of it and I used a puppet to practice my, no where near talented, ventriloquist skills. I had fun, so hopefully everyone else did too!

That’s all for now!
