Firefighters Week

This week I had to change some of my original storytimes but overall I was happy with how it turned out.  I have tried Firefighter's theme before and it just doesn't seem to work for this age group.   This time around I read


Maisy's Fire Engine by Lucy Cousins
Hugo the Flying Firefighter by Lorette Broekstra * perfect for this age group.
Firefighters and What They Do by Liesbet Slegers

Opening Song- Everybody say…

I Can Hug
I can hug, hug, hug
I can hop, hop, hop
I can kiss, kiss, kiss
I can stop, stop, stop
I can nod my head for yes,
And I can shake my head no,
And I can sit down very slow.

Runaway Engine
Runaway engine, rickety rack, (pump arms like a train)
Running around the railway track (draw large circle with finger)
All the way there and all the way back (point at child and at self)
Runaway engine rickety rack (pump arms like a train)
Repeat slow, then faster

Ten Little Firemen
Ten little firemen sleeping in a row, (extend both hands, fingers curled)
Ding dong goes the bell (pull bell cord with one hand)
And down the pole they go (close both fists, put one on top of other, slide down pole )
Off on the engine, oh, oh, oh. (steer engine with hands)
Using the big hose, so, so, so.
When all the fire's out, home so-o slow (steer engine with hands)
Back to bed, all in a row. (extend both hands with fingers curled)

Bubble Time
Goodbye song-  We Wave Goodbye Like This
