Robot Story Time (2019)

Welcome Song: Clap and Sing Hello (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

We tap and sing hello (tap knees) //
We stretch and sing hello (stretch arms up) //
We wave and sing hello (wave)

Song: Eeny Meeny Miny Mo
Eeny meeny miny mo,
Let me hear your hands go,
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap,
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap!

Sounds so good, sounds so fine,
Let me hear it one more time!
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap,
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap!

Feet go stomp // Tongue go click // Mouth go shhh

Magnet Board: Five Shiny Robots
Five shiny robots playing marbles on the floor,
One went home and now there are four.
Four shiny robots playing in a tree,
One went home and now there are three.
Three shiny robots with nothing left to do,
One went home and now there are two.
Two shiny robots think of something fun,
One went home and now there is one.
One shiny robot pretending to be a hero,
His mother called him home and now there are zero.

Action Rhyme: Robot, Robot
Robot, robot, turn around,
Robot, robot, touch the ground.
Robot, robot, turn left and right,
Robot, robot, flash your lights.
Robot, robot, bloop and bleep,
Robot, robot, go to sleep.

If you’re a robot and you know it clank your coils, (clap your hands)
If you’re a robot and you know it clank your coils, (clap your hands)
If you’re a robot and you know it and you really want to show it,
If you’re a robot and you know it clank your coils, (clap your hands)

Clunk your gears (stomp your feet) // Press your buttons (“Beep, beep”)
