Spring Story Time ONLINE! (2020)

My library, like all libraries, is trying to figure out how to reach our patrons without being open. We’ve started a YouTube page and I wanted to share the video of my Spring Story Time with you! I’ll be adding more online little by little and I’ll post those links here as well.

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy by STAYING HOME! What are you doing to reach your patrons?

Welcome Song: Clap and Sing Hello
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

Tap and sing hello // Stretch and sing hello // Wave and sing hello

Song: The Wheels on the Bus

Book: Kite Day by Will Hillenbrand

Bear and Mole build a kite but it flies away from them! Where will it land?

Song/Scarves: Popcorn Kernels (to the tune of Frere Jacques; sing each line twice)
Popcorn kernels, (wave scarves overhead)
In the pot. (make scarves ‘disappear’ by bunching them in their fists)
Shake them, shake them, shake them, (shake)
’til they POP! (throw scarves into the air)

Song/Scarves: One Bright Scarf (to the tune of 10 Little Indians)
One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow, (hold in hand)
Wiggle it high, (wiggle above head)
Wiggle it low, (wiggle by knees)
Shake it fast, (shake fast)
Shake it slow, (shake slow)
Put it behind your back. (put scarf behind your back)
Where did it go? (bring out empty hands; shrug)

Song/Scarves: We Wave Our Scarves Together (to the tune of For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow)
We wave our scarves together,
We wave our scarves together,
We wave our scarves together,
Because it’s fun to do!

We wave them high, (sing/wave high)
We wave them low, (sing/wave low)
We wave them in the middle,
Because it’s fun to do!

We throw our scarves together,
We throw our scarves together,
We throw our scarves together,
Because it’s fun to do!

We throw them high, (throw/sing high)
We throw them low, (throw/sing low)
We throw them in the middle,
Because it’s fun to do!

Book: Little Blue Truck’s Springtime by Alice Schertle; illustrated by Jill McElmurry

Little Blue Truck and Toad visit their animal friends (and several new babies!) in this adorable lift-the-flap book.

Song: Itsy, Bitsy Spider

Closing Song: It’s Time to Say Goodbye to All Our Friends (to the tune of She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain When She Comes)
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!” (tap knees)
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
It’s time to say goodbye,
Wave your hands and wink your eye, (wave, wink)
Now it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
