Dragon Storytime

This week's theme was dragons! This is what we did:

 Songs and Fingerplays

Little Dragon
(suit actions to words)
Little Dragon counts to three,
Little Dragon bends one knee.
Little Dragon touches his toes,
Little Dragon touches his nose.
Little Dragon makes a funny face,
Little Dragon runs in place.
Little Dragon lays on the floor,
Little Dragon starts to snore.

Swing Your Dragon Tail
(suit actions to words)
Turn around once and swing your dragon tail.
Turn around twice and flap your wings like sails.
Turn around three times, stomp your feet and roar.
Jump up high, then sit down on the floor.

I’m a Little Dragon
(Tune: I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little dragon,
strong and stout.
Here is my tail and
here is my snout.
If you get me upset,
you better watch out!
I’ll give you something
to shout about

Three Knights in Shining Armor
Three knights in shining armor,
Fearless and brave,
Went dragon hunting
Deep in a cave.
The dragon started breathing fire,
The knights’ knees were all aquiver,
So one little knight
Took off running for the river!

One little knight in shining armor….
So the last little knight
Took off running for the river!

Dragon Pokey
(version of Hokey Pokey!)
You put your right claw in,
You put your right claw out,
You put your right claw in,
And you shake it all about,
You do the dragon pokey
and you turn yourself around
That what it's all about.

... left claw
... dragon self

Breathing Fire
(tune: London Bridges)
Little Dragon, breathing fire
Breathing fire, breathing fire
Little dragon breathing fire
Little dragon!

…toward the ground
…on your head!
…on your nose
….in the sky!

Five Little Dragons
One little dragon with scales of blue;
Ran to meet the green one,
And then there were two.
Two little dragons sitting under a tree;
The red dragon joined them,
And then there were three.
Three little dragons, wishing there were more;
Along came the purple dragon,
And then there were four.
Four little dragons, happy to be alive;
Found a yellow dragon,
And then there were five.
Five little dragons all out to play;
“Watch out, they breathe fire,” is all I have to say.
