Rabbits – Preschool Storytime

The week before Easter, we shared bunny stories at storytime!

MOVEMENT: Welcome Song*

MOVEMENT: “Can’t Wait to Celebrate” from Jim Gill’s Irrational Anthem by Jim Gill

BOOK:


MOVEMENT:
Bunny Pokey
(to the tune of “Hokey Pokey”)
You put your bunny ears in
You put your bunny ears out
You put your bunny ears in
And you shake them all about
You do the Bunny Pokey
And you hop yourself around
That’s what it’s all about!

You put your bunny nose in..
You put your bunny paws in..
You put your bunny tail in..

FLANNELBOARD:
The Giant Carrot
Giant Carrot Flannelboard3
(Pattern and story taken from The Flannel Board Storytelling Book by Judy Sierra)

MOVEMENT: “Shake My Sillies Out” from More Singable Songs for the Very Young by Raffi

BOOK:
Uwungelema

A Boy and His Bunny by Sean Bryan, illustrated by Tom Murphy

MOVEMENT: Did You Ever See a Bunny?

(to tune of “Did You Ever See a Lassie?”
Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny
Did you ever see a bunny that hops so slow
He hops and he hops and he hops and he hops
Did you ever see a bunny that hops so slow?

That hops so… fast
… backwards
… on one foot

MOVEMENT: Storytime’s Over*

THOUGHTS ON THIS STORYTIME:
It took me so long to get to this blog post…. I don’t remember.  Except bunny tails are a hit.

ATTENDANCE: 32 (adults and children)
