2 Year Olds Storytime Plan: Veggie, veggie, soup, soup

This storytime actually went really well for our easily distracted young ones. I used Ikea and wooden veggies for Stir the Soup and the Color Song (which we did last week so that helped with grownups singing along). I threw in Raffi’s Peanut Butter sandwich after the Valley of Vegetables for more shaker fun and everyone loves a sandwich and soup combo lunch special. Peas Porrdige Hot actually went really well, everyone joined along with the slap slap clap….even with a fake out singing of We Will Rock You.

BOOK:         Slop Goes the Soup, Pamela Edwards

RHYME:                 Stir, Stir, Stir the Soup (Idea borrowed from: jeninthelibrary)
(To tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”)
Stir, stir, stir the soup
Stir it all day long.
Add some (insert food name here),
Take a taste (slurrrp!)
With soup, you can’t go wrong!

MUSIC:           Valley of Vegetables, Laurie Berkner
(Cucumber/Crunch, Zucchini/squish squash, Potatoes /chaump, Onions/boo hoo… )

BOOK:         Up, Down and Around (Big Book)

RHYME:                 Color Food Song ( “The Wheels on the Bus” tune)
The apples that we eat are red, red ,red,
Red, red, red, Red, red, red.
The apples that we eat are red, red ,red,
And they taste so good.
(Carrots/orange, lemons/yellow, potatoes/brown, peppers/green)

MUSIC:          I Feel Crazy so I Jump in the Soup, Laurie Berkner (jump, swim, gallop, splash, sit)

RHYME:                 Peas Porridge (tap, tap, clap)
Peas Porridge (clapping chant)
Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold.
Peas porridge in the pot, nine days old.
Some like it hot, some like it cold.
Some like it in the pot, nine days old!

SONG:          Can’t Wait to Celebrate, Jim Gill
