Songs & Activities:
Storytime Stretch
Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
Stand up again, let's do some more!
Touch your shoulders, then your knees;
Now your elbows, like this you see.
Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
Stand up! Sit down! There is no more.

Bread and Butter--Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam;
Let's say "Goodbye" as HIGH as we can:
"Goodbye!" (in a high voice)

Bread and butter, marmalade and jam;
Let's say "Goodbye" as LOW as we can:
"Goodbye!" (in a deep voice)

Continue, inserting other opposites: Loud-Quiet, Fast-Slow, Serious-Silly...
