Story Time – July 7th, 2020

10:30 am ONLINE on Facebook – ages 2 to 5

We met Mr. Pig and Mr. Wolf in story time this week. They helped us act out the familiar fairy tale, “The Three Little Pigs.” See if you can remember the story, too. Print off the stick puppets from the link below, color and cut them out, and create your own puppet show!

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

As children mature, they realize that certain behaviors cause certain responses. Having good manners means responding politely to people when they address you, and this rhyme helps children practice polite greetings.

- Lambert

Activity

Try acting out the fingerplay, “Two Fat Gentlemen.” Start by holding your fists behind your back with your thumbs extended. Then move your thumbs appropriately while reciting the rhyme. You may want to put small rounds sticker at the end of each thumb. You can also practice this rhyme with a friend saying, “How do you do?” to one another.

Songs, Rhymes and Fingerplays

The Tail of the Pig

(sung to The Wheels on the Bus)

The tail of the pig curls round and round
Round and round, round and round
The tail of the pig curls round and round
All through the mud!

The mouth of the pig goes oink oink oink
Oink oink oink, oink oink oink
The mouth of the pig goes oink oink oink
All through the mud!

The nose of the pig goes root root root
Root root root, root root root
The nose of the pig goes root root root
All through the mud!

The hooves of the pig go run run run
Run run run, run run run
The hooves of the pig go run run run
All through the mud!

The ears of the pig go twitch twitch twitch
Twitch twitch twitch, twitch twitch twitch
The ears of the pig go twitch twitch twitch
All through the mud!

If You’re Happy, Howl at the Moon 

If you’re happy and you know it, howl at the moon,
If you’re happy and you know it, howl at the moon,
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it,
If you’re happy and you know it, howl at the moon.
Aaaaaawwwooooooo!

Fingerplay: Two Fat Gentlemen

Met in a glen
Bowed most politely
And bowed once again
“How do you do?”
And “How do you do?”
And “How do you do?” again

“How do you do?”
And “How do you do?”
And “How do you do?” again

– Traditional

Fingerplay: Five Little Piggies

“It’s time for my piggies to go to bed,” the great big mother piggy said.
“So I will count them first to see if all my piggies came back to me.
One little piggy, two little piggies, three little piggies dear
Four little piggies, five little piggies, — yes, they’re all here!”

– Preschool Rainbow
