Beach Storytime

For this storytime, I chose to go with a sensory storytime model.  Usually, sensory storytimes are what’s recommended for students with special needs, but they are great for all kids, especially those who are younger and have trouble focusing.

Welcome, and visual schedule.

Hello song – We clap and say hello, we clap and say hello, with our friends at storytime we clap and say hello.  We stomp and say hello, we stomp and say hello, with our friends at storytime we stomp and say hello.  We wave and say hello, we wave and say hello, with our friends at storytime we wave and say hello.

Stand: Once I saw a crab swimming in the deep blue sea. (Swim, point downward) I called, “Mr. Crab, won’t you swim with me?” (Cup hands around mouth) Then he show me his short and sharp pinchers two, (Make two clawhands) And I swam away from his pinchers, phew! (Swim away) (credit: Storytime Katie)

Fetch! Jorey Hurley

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream.  Merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.  (Faster, slower.)

With scarves: The fish in the sea go swish, swish, swish…all day long.  The dolphins in the sea swim round and round…all day long.  The sand in the sea drifts down, down, down…all day long.  The waves on the sea go up and down…all day long. (Credit: Jbrary

Goodbye Song – We clap and say goodbye, we clap and say goodbye, with our friends at storytime we clap and say goodbye.  We stomp and say goodbye, we stomp and say goodbye, with our friends at storytime we stomp and say goodbye.  We wave and say goodbye, we wave and say goodbye, with our friends at storytime we wave and say goodbye.
