Blogging A to Z: Letter X

28 Apr

Letter X.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!

  1. A Fox: The Sound of X by Alice K. Flanagan
  2. My Mom Has X-Ray Vision by Angela McCallister

What Begins With X?
What begins with x?
What begins with x?
We all know, we’ll tell you so.
What begins with x?
(Xylophone, X-ray, Xavier)

What ends with x?
What ends with x?
We all know, we’ll tell you so.
What ends with x?

A Taxi Is a Car
A taxi is a car,
A taxi is a car,
You tell the driver where to go,
And then you ride that far.

The Fox Is In the Box
(To the Tune of: The Farmer In the Dell)
The fox is in the box
The fox is in the box
The fox is in the GREEN box
the fox is in the box.

The fox is under the box
The fox is under the box
The fox is under the YELLOW box
The fox is under the box.

The fox is above the box
The fox is above the box
The fox is above the BLUE box
The fox is above the box.

The fox is in front of the box
The fox is in front of the box
The fox is in front of the RED box
The fox is in front of the box.

The fox is to the right of the box
The fox is to the right of the box
The fox is to the right of the ORANGE box
The fox is to the right of the box.

Jack in the Box
Jack in the box
sits so still
Will he come out?
Yes, he will!
