Since I've started doing these storytimes, I've found it immensely helpful to read the "set-up" from other storytimes on other blogs to get ideas...so I want to "pay it forward." I'm going to try to put up as many storytimes as I can so that maybe someone else will get ideas for their storytimes!
Let me know if you have any format suggestions, etc!!
This was the Pajama Storytime I did in February.
Theme: Puppies, Puppies, Puppies!
Opening Song: BINGO (clapping hands rhythmically)There was a man who had a dog and
BINGO was his name-o,
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O,
and BINGO was his name-o.

Action Rhyme: Little Puppies and Little Kittens
One, two, three little kittens,
were napping in the sun,
(hold up 3 fingers of left hand)
One, two, three little puppies said,
"let's have some fun,"
(hold up 3 fingers of right hand)
Up to the kittens the puppies crept
as quiet as could be
(creep right hand up to the left)
One, two, three little kittens went
scampering up a tree.
(climb left fingers up arm)
Action Song: Puppy Care ("Skip to my Lou")
Walk, walk, walk your puppy,
Take him for a walk.
Brush, brush, brush your puppy
....til' he's neat and clean.
Feed, feed, feed your puppy
...he sure likes to eat!
