Flannelboard: “Ten Fluffy Chickens”

Five eggs and five eggs
And that makes ten
Sitting on top is mother hen
Cackle, cackle, cackle
And what do I see?
Ten fluffy chicks as yellow as can be
Mel’s Desk & Storytime Katie

Puppets: “All Around the Barnyard”
All around the barnyard
The animals are fast asleep
Sleeping cows and horses
Sleeping pigs and sheep
Here comes the cocky rooster
To sound his dairy alarm
To wake the sleepy farm!

Song: “I Know a Chicken”

Oh, I know a chicken and she laid an egg
Oh, I know a chicken and she laid an egg
Oh my goodness, it’s a shaky egg!
Shake your eggs!
(Fast, slow, circle, etc.)
Miss Sarah’s Storytime & Storytime Katie

 Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
(Tune: London Bridge is Falling Down)
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Eyes, and ears and mouth and nose.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Knees and toes

Higgledy Piggledy
Higgledy Piggledy,
My black hen,
She lays eggs
For gentlemen;
Sometimes nine,
And sometimes ten,
Higgledy Piggledy,
My black hen!

 Ten Fingers
A fingerplay
I have ten fingers    hold up both hands, fingers spread
And they all belong to me, 
point to self
I can make them do things-
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight   make fists
I can open them wide   
open hands
I can put them together  
place palms together
I can make them all hide  
put hands behind back
I can make them jump high   hands over head
I can make them jump low  
touch floor
I can fold them up quietly  
fold hands in lap
And hold them just so.

Come along and sing with us Song
Sing with us (Here we go round Mulberry Bush)
Come along and sing with us
Sing with us, sing with us
Come along and sing with us
So early in the morning
Continue with….
…clap with us
…bounce with us
….read with us
