Updated: Aug 10

2/8/2020 – Family Storytime – Transportation


Song – Top of the Morning

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

Hello Rhyme – PBJ Hello

We say hello in a lot of different ways!

Peanut butter jelly, Marmalade and jam. Let’s say hello as LOUD as we can! HELLO (softly, fast, slow, nicely) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx61o23Vvns)

Song – Can’t Sit Still! by Greg & Steve

A colleague gave me this one and it’s got some great moves!

ASL –  CAR / PLANE / BOAT

I like to include a few new ASL signs in storytime. I sometimes print my own flash cards from Baby Sign Language.

Story –  Melvin Might? By Jon Scieszka

This is a little long but new to our library and cute. So I thought it might work for a first book, which I generally do a little longer.

Rhyme – I’m an Airplane

Here we use our bodies to be airplanes.

I’m an airplane (repeat) Flying high (repeat) I can tilt this way (repeat) In the sky (repeat) I’m an airplane (repeat) Flying high (repeat) I can tilt that way (repeat) In the sky (repeat) I’m an airplane (repeat) Flying high (repeat) I can make a landing (repeat) From the sky (repeat) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv76PtdM4BU)

Song – Wheels on the Bus 

Can’t have a transportation theme without this gem!

Story/Prop – Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems

I made this puppet ages ago and I love a good excuse to break him out!

Game –  Traffic Light Freeze Game

I created stop lights on Popsicle sticks and we do a version of red light, green light where we drive our cars fast, slow and then stop.

Rhyme – Have You Ever Seen a Sailboat

This ones great for the lap babies and toddlers.

Have you ever seen a sailboat, a sailboat, a sailboat. Have you ever seen a sailboat, waving it’s sails. Wave this way and that way, That way and this way. Have you ever seen a sailboat, waving it’s sails.


Story – Freight Train by Donald Crews

This ones great for colors and sounds.

Finger Play – Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

And of course we need a rocket ship!

Zoom, zoom, zoom We’re going to the moon. Zoom, zoom, zoom We’re going to the moon. If you want to take a trip climb aboard my rocket ship. Zoom, zoom, zoom We’re going to the moon. In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blast off!

Shakers / Song – Chugga, Lugga Choo Choo by ….

20161007_155100

I can’t remember who this one is by but it has a great shaker beat.

Rhyme – If You’re Happy and You Know It

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

Goodbye Rhyme – PBJ Goodbye

We end the same way we said hello.

Peanut butter jelly, Marmalade and jam. Let’s say goodbye as LOUD as we can! Goodbye (softly, fast, slow, nicely) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx61o23Vvns)

Song – Clean it up

Song – Goodbye, so long, farewell my friends


How’d it go:

This was a fun one. We loved flying in our airplanes and driving our cars!


That’s all for now!
