Songs and Felt Board

Opening song: participants sing about something they are wearing

Example: "Caroline's wearing her blue shirt, her blue shirt, her blue shirt, Caroline's wearing her blue shirt, all day long. Please take a bow!"

Felt Board: Little Mouse, Little Mouse, are you in the [color] house?

Caroline hides felt mouse under one of four colored felt houses on felt board. "Little Mouse, Little Mouse, are you in the pink house?" Caroline picks up pink felt house. "No mouse..." "Little Mouse, Little Mouse, are you in the orange house?" Caroline picks up orange felt house. "No mouse..." "Little Mouse, Little Mouse, are you in the green house?" Caroline picks up green felt house. "Yes!" Curious George hides mouse.

Five Little Fish: "There were five little fish swimming in the sea, teasing Mr. Shark, you can't catch me, no you can't catch me. Along comes Mr. Shark as quiet as can be... and he SNAPS that fish right out the sea..." (Continue verses with "There were four little fish swimming in the sea," "There were three little fish swimming in the sea," and stop after "There was one little fish swimming in the sea")

Hokey Pokey: "You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out, you put your right foot in and you shake it all about. You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what it’s all about!” Repeat verses with "left foot," "right arm," "left arm," "head," and end after "whole self (whole body)" with a "Hey!" at the end

Ending song: This is the Way We Say Goodbye

"This is the way we say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye, this is the way we say goodbye, after story time. We give our friends a big high five, a big high five, a big high five, we give our friends a big high five, after story time"
