Fish Story Time (2020) ONLINE

One of my favorite summer story time topics!

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!

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

Song: Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Book: The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen; pictures by Dan Hanna

Pout-Pout Fish has a pout-pout face and he spreads his dreary wearies all over the place. Until an angel fish comes along and gives him a big kiss!

Song: Slippery Fish

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)

Book: Fidgety Fish by Ruth Galloway

Fidgety Fish just can’t sit still! So his mama sends him out into the ocean to get his wiggles out. But what happens when he finds a deep, dark cave?

Song: Itsy, Bitsy Spider

Song: The Wheels on the Bus

Song: Bubble Bubble Pop
One little red fish swimming in the water,
Swimming in the water, Swimming in the water.
One little red fish swimming in the water,
Bubble, bubble, bubble, bubble … POP!

Two little blue fish // Three little orange fish // All of the fish

Book: Hooray for Fish by Lucy Cousins

One of my favorites. Big and bright for story time.

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!”
