Doctors, Nurses and Hospitals Storytime

Doctors, Nurses and Hospitals Storytime

Visiting the doctor can be scary and traumatic for a child! Here are some great options to share about what might happen at the doctor to take away the fear!

Doctor in the Clinic :
to the tune of ”The Farmer in the Dell”
The doctor in the clinic.
The doctor in the clinic.
Hi-ho the derry-o,
The doctor in the clinic.
The doctor takes a nurse…
The nurse takes a patient…
The patient gets help…
The patient gets better…

Miss Polly Had a Dolly Rhyme

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.
So she phoned for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick.
The doctor came with his bag and his hat,
And knocked at the door with a rat-a-tat-tat.
He looked at the dolly and shook his head,
And said “Miss Polly, put her straight to bed.”
He wrote a paper for a pill, pill, pill.
I’ll be back in the morning with the bill, bill, bill.

The Bandage Song (from Making Learning Fun)
The basic idea is you move the bandage to different body parts.

Sing to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell:Put a bandage on my knee,
Put a bandage on my knee
Oh please take care of me
Put bandage on my knee.

Put a bandage on my head,
Put a bandage on my head
Oh please put me to bed
Put bandage on my head.

I added some silliness to this story by trying to put the bandage on the WRONG body part while asking "Is this his knee?" and everyone would yell "NO!!!" I also replaced the word "nurse" with "please" since I wasn't really mentioning nurses today.
