Blogging A to Z: Mice

15 Apr

Letter M.jpg

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. Lunch by Denise Fleming
  2. Mice by Rose Fyleman
  3. Hide & Squeak by Heather Vogel Frederick
  4. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff
  5. Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh
  6. Little Mouse by Alison Murray
  7. By Mouse & Frog by Deborah Freedman
  8. The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood

Songs & Rhymes:

Little Mouse, Little Mouse
Little mouse, little mouse
Are you in the (insert color here) house?

Five Little Mice
5 little mice on the pantry floor,
This little mouse peeked behind the door,
This little mouse nibbled at the cake,
This little mouse not a sound did make.
This little mouse heard the kitten sneeze.
“Ah choo!” sneezed the kitten,
And “squeak” they all cried,
And they found a hole and ran inside.

Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory dickory dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
And down he run.
Hickory dickory dock.

Hickory dickory dock.
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck two;
The mouse said, “Boo!”
Hickory dickory dock.

Hickory dickory dock.
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck three;
The mouse said, “Whee!”
Hickory dickory dock.

The Mouse Ran Around the Room
(Sung to the tune: “The Bear Went Over the Mountain”)
The mouse ran around the room,
The mouse ran around the room,
The mouse ran around the room,
And what do you think he saw?

He saw a great big cat,
He saw a great big cat,
He saw a great big cat,
So what do you think he did?

The mouse ran into his hole,
The mouse ran into his hole,
The mouse ran into his hole,
Safe and sound at last.
