Blogging From A to Z: Construction Vehicles

4 Apr

Letter C

During the month of April, I’ll be participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge.  My theme for the month is Storytime Plans From A to Z.  Each plan will have eight stories as well as four songs, fingerplays or rhymes to match the theme!  As you can see, I’ll try and attribute where I found all of this fun (and often you can find it in multiple places).  My goal is to make storytime planning a little easier on myself in the future and to make storytime planning for other librarians easy as well!

Book List:

  1. Go!  Go!  Go! Stop! by Charise Mericle Harper
  2. Machines at Work by Byron Barton
  3. Dig, Dogs, Dig! by James Horvath
  4. Good Morning, Digger! by Anne Rockwell
  5. Tip Tip Dig Dig by Emma Garcia
  6. Little Dump Truck by Margery Cuyler
  7. Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker
  8. Mighty Dads by Joan Holub

Songs & Rhymes:

Construction Worker Song
This is the way we pound the nails, pound the nails, pounds the nails
This is the way we pound the nails so early in the morning.

This is the way we saw the wood, saw the wood, saw the wood.
This is the way we saw the wood so early in the morning.

Stack the bricks…
Stir the paint…
Paint the wall…

Scoop and Dump
Scoop! Goes ditch digger in the dirt (Bend low, raise arms high)
Scoop! Goes ditch digger in the dirt
Scoop! Goes ditch digger in the dirt
Scoop up all the dirt!

Reach up high with the crane (Cup hand, hold high)
Reach up high with the crane
Reach up high with the crane
Hold the dirt up high!

Dump the dirt into the truck (Reach high, drop hands to knees)
Dump the dirt into the truck
Dump the dirt into the truck
Haul it all away!

Five Little Nails
Five little nails, standing straight and steady.
Here I come with my hammer ready!
Bam Bam Bam! That nail goes down.
Now there’s just four nails to pound.

Bumpity Bumpity
Bumpity, bumpity goes the dump truck
Bumpity, bumpity goes the dump truck
Bumpity, bumpity goes the dump truck
Dump out the load.

    Great post. I like how you break up the songs by age groups.
