Chicken Storytime

A few weeks ago I did a "Noisy Farm" storytime.  I had so much fun with that subject I developed a storytime all about chickens!

    Songs, Rhymes, Fingerplays

    Little Chick
    Little Chick, Little Chick
    Come out and play
    What color barn are you in today?

    Shake, Shake, Shake
    (Tune: Do your ears hang low?)

    Can you shake your egg up high?
    Can you shake your egg down low?
    Can you shake it side to side?
    Can you shake it by your toe?
    Can you shake it really fast?
    Can you shake it really slow?
    Can you shake your egg?

    1, 2 Buckle My Shoe
    1, 2 buckle my shoe
    3, 4 shut the door
    5, 6 pick up sticks
    7, 8 lay them straight
    9, 10 a big, fat hen!

    Play and Learn
