Farm Story Time (OUTDOOR 2021)

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: The Wheels on the Bus

Book: The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson; illustrated by Marcellus Hall

The geese love corn, the pigs love slop, but the cow loves COOKIES!

Rhyme: Open Up the Barn Door
Open up the barn door, the spring goes, “boink,”
There’s a pig in the barn saying, “oink, oink, oink.”
Open up the barn door before the clock strikes two,
There’s a cow in the barn saying, “moo, moo, moo.”
Open up the barn door, it’s a sunny day,
There’s a horse in the barn saying, “neigh, neigh, neigh.”
Open up the barn door while singing “tra-la-la,”
There’s a sheep in the barn saying “baa, baa, baa.”
Open up the barn door while the sky is blue,
There’s a rooster in the barn saying “cock a doodle doo!”
Open up the barn door and don’t get off the track,
There’s a duck in the barn saying “quack, quack, quack.”

I don’t have a felt board at our outdoor story times so I used Lakeshore farm animals for this rhyme. I read the line and then held up each farm animals for the kids to call out and then make their noise. I was worried the animals would be a little too small but the kids must have very good eyesight because it worked fine.

Song: Roly Poly

Book: Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle

Rhyming story about Little Blue helping out a friend (even if that friend was a bit rude in the beginning!).

Recorded Song: The Goldfish — Laurie Berkner Band

Recorded Song: Old MacDonald Has a Farm — Sesame Street

Book: The Greedy Goat by Petr Horacek

Goat eats EVERYTHING. Then she gets a belly ache. Will she ever learn?

Goodbye Song: It’s Time To Say Goodbye to All Our Friends
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, (tap knees)
Goodbye!
It’s time to say goodbye to all our friends,
Goodbye!
It’s time to say goodbye …
Wave your hands and wink your eye!
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends,
Goodbye! (wave)
