Food Storytime

August 1, 2011

My library televises Saturday storytimes. We have a difficult time receiving permission for books so Flannel Friday has been a huge help to stretch these storytimes. I probably went overboard during my last Saturday storytime and used only two books and four ideas from Flannel Friday friends!

Opener:
Roll, roll, roll your hands as slowly as you can.
Roll, roll, roll your hands as quickly as you can.

Repeated using: pound, shake, and clap.

Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry & the Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood

Five Little Strawberries

picking up the fruits
Action song: Picking Up the Fruits
Inspired by Mollie at What Happens in Storytime who was inspired by Itsy Bitsy Babies.
Sung to: The Paw Paw Patch
Picking up the apples and puttin’ ‘em in the basket
Picking up the apples and puttin’ ‘em in the basket
Picking up the apples and puttin’ ‘em in the basket
Way down yonder in the apple field.

Repeated with banana, orange, and lemon.
Children brought up each fruit they had as we sang it out and placed it in a basket.

Action rhyme: Two Red Apples (inspired by Tracey at 1234 More Storytimes

bingo apple

Song: A-P-P-L-E (to the tune of BINGO, idea from My Montessori Journey)
I know a fruit that’s good to eat and apple is its name-o
A-P-P-L-E, A-P-P-L-E, A-P-P-L-E
And apple is its name-o.
I know a fruit that’s good to eat and apple is its name-o
Crunch-P-P-L-E, Crunch-P-P-L-E, Crunch-P-P-L-E
And apple is it’s name-o.

Flip over each letter in Apple as you crunch away. Making these was my first attempt at GIMP. There’s a reason why that middle P is the one I chose to show the letter side 🙂
