Toddler Storytime

These are all the different themes I have used for my storytimes over the years. There are only so many themes that lend themselves to having enough content and they will be used again but no more than once a year. While all the content for each theme has been used it may have not been used all at the same time.

I always use the same opening and closing rhymes for every toddler storytime. I am certainly not the first person to use these rhymes. I like the rhythm of them and the movement that they lead everyone in.

Opening Rhyme
Arms go up and arms go down
I can turn around and round
I can jump up on two shoes
I can listen, so can you
I can sit, I’ll show you how
Storytime begins right now

Closing Rhyme
Arms go up and arms go down
I can turn around and round
I can jump up on two shoes
I can clap, and so can you
I can wave, I’ll show you how
Storytime is over now
