Funny Storytime

Our local youth council comes every summer for a visit.  I didn’t want to do a traditional summer storytime, so I decided to do funny books.

I put a call out on the Storytime Underground Facebook book to find a second title. They gave me so many titles, it was hard to choose just one!

I ended up with a really good one:

 

For songs, I did Greg & Steve’s Chicken Mack dance and a funny rhyme I found through an ALA handout titled “Mother Goose on the Loose: Time for Storytime with Dr. Besty Diamant-Cohen” produced in 2015.

Oh where, oh where has my little head  gone?

Oh where, oh were can it be?

Oh where, oh where has my little head  gone?

Oh where, oh were can it be?

(I added other body parts such as elbow, stomach, knee, and foot)

 

I had wanted a reason to do my second book from the minute I saw it. The kids loved it!

 

 

The flannel we had was called “I Saw a Giraffe Drive By” which can be found on Jeninthelibrary‘s blog. Here are the words:

One sunny day I saw a giraffe drive by,
In a shiny car and a big bow tie.
Then I saw a sheep,
Riding in a jeep.
Then I saw a duck,
Driving a truck.
One sunny day.

One sunny day I saw a platypus,
He was going for a ride on a little orange school bus.
Then I saw a goat,
She was rowing a boat.
Then I saw a bear,
Flying through the air,
One sunny day.

Oh, me, oh, my,
What a lot of funny animals went by!

The kids had a great time laughing their way through this storytime.
