Fingerplay: “Baby Mice”
Where are the baby mice?
Squeak, squeak, squeak
I cannot see them
Peek, peek, peek
Here they come out of their hole! (bring your fist forward)
One, two, three, four, five, and that is all! (open your fingers one at a time)

Action Rhyme: “Monster Monster”
Monster, monster, turn around
Monster, monster, touch the ground
Monster, monster, reach up high
Monster, monster, touch the sky
Monster, monster, touch your nose
Monster, monster, grab your toes
Monster, monster, touch your knees
Monster, monster, sit down please

Action Rhyme: “Zoom Zoom Zoom”
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon!
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’ll be there very soon!
So, if you’d like to take a trip
Just step inside my rocket ship
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon!
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’ll be there very soon!

This is a craft from Totally Tots. This is one of my favorite of their letter crafts, and I was super thrilled to use it!

How It Went

Another successful storytime with my daycare group. Letter M is a great letter, with lots of different ideas so this storytime was a breeze to plan. Their favorite book was “Kitten’s First Full Moon,” which made me super happy since Kevin Henkes is one of my favorite picture book authors of all time. And as always, my Little Mouse flannelboard thrills them to no end!
