Silly Hat

On my head, I wear a hat (pretend to place hat on head)
It is such a silly hat
That my head will wiggle waggle to and fro (tilt head side to side)
Where else can my silly hat go?

(repeat with different body parts)

Grandma’s Glasses

These are grandma’s glasses
(circle hands over eyes)

This is grandma’s hat
(place hands over head)
This is the way she folds her hands
(clasp hands together)
And lays them in her lap
(place hands in lap)

Here are grandpa’s glasses
(circle hands over eyes)
And here is grandpa’s hat
(place hands over head)
And here’s the way he folds his arms
(cross arms)
And takes a little nap
(place head on arms and snore)

Boots by Laurie Berkner


This was a great song to get wiggles out! We marched around the room, had kids jumping like frogs and danced about. Even the shyest kids got into it!

Missing Socks Flannel Board (Tune: Where, Oh Where)

For this flannel board I hot glued a magnet onto a clothes pin and gave each child a clothes pin to practice opening and closing it. Parents were great about helping their little ones use their motor skills! Next I gave each child a colored sock and had them discuss with their parents what color the sock is. As I sang about my missing sock children would bring their matching sock to the board. 

Where, oh where did my socks go? (shrug shoulders)
Where, oh where can they be?
I have looked high and I have looked low (shield eyes and pretend to look)
Where, oh where can they be?

I’m looking for my red sock!

(repeat with other colors)

How it Went: This is the first time I have used the Laurie Berkner Band “Boots” and it was a blast! I love having the children stomp around during storytime.
