Family Storytime Theme: Super Heroes

Family Storytime Theme- Super Heroes

Super heroes are a crowd favorite, but rather than choose DC or Marvel super heroes, I found some really great stories about kids being super heroes.  And as we were talking in storytime about what makes someone a super hero, a little boy responded with the best reason of all – “they help people.”  I couldn’t have said it better myself!

Opening:Hello” with sign language
Hello, friends. (x3)
It’s time to say hello.

 Early Literacy Tip: “Play games with the things that you and the child can see on the page, such as letting kids finish rhymes, and finding the letters that start the child’s name and yours, remembering that it’s never work, it’s always a fabulous game.”  – Mem Fox’s 10 Read-Aloud Commandments

 Transition: “Five Little Ducks”

Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck called with a
“Quack, quack, quack”
But only four little ducks came swimming back.

Four little ducks…
Three little ducks…
Two little ducks…
One little duck…

Sad mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack.”
And the five little ducks came swimming back.

Wiggles:See the Little Bunny Sleeping
See the little bunnies sleeping
til it’s nearly noon
Come and let us gently wake them
with a merry tune
Oh, how still.
Are they ill?
Wake up soon!
Hop little bunnies,
hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies,
hope, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies,
hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies,
hope, hop, hop
