Toddler Storytime-Popcorn!!

Today’s theme was all about Popcorn and it was very difficult to find books that would go with this theme so I want many different directions with it.  Here is what the plan was for the morning:

1.) Hello Song with Lamb Chop

2.) Scarf Song-Popcorn Kernels

3.) Book One: Popcorn

4.) Song-Roly Poly

5.) Flannel-5 Popcorn Kernels

6.) Book Two:  Thump Quack Moo

7.) Song-Pop Pop Pop

8.) Flannel: Little Boy Blue

9.) Book Three: If You Take a Mouse to the Movies

10.) Song-Zoom, Zoom, Zoom (Movie Edition)

11.) Scarf Song-Popcorn Kernals

12.) Goodbye Song with Lamb Chop



Hello song with Lamb Chop is the same song that I use every week so that the parents and the kids learn it and can sing along with me every week.


I love doing scarf songs with this group so I used Jbrary’s  Popcorn Kernals.  The kids loved it! Check it out 🙂





Roly Poly song, which is one of my FAVORITES and the kids love it.  It is from Jbrary.  Check it out 🙂



I next did a flannel that I got from Mel’s Desk.  Five Popcorn Kernels.



We discussed what is popcorn from.  What kind of vegetable? Where does that vegetable grow?  That led us into this fun book 🙂



Next we sang a fun song from Jbrary, Pop Pop Pop, and we used maracas instead of shaker eggs.  This was super fun and the kids loved getting their own instruments.

I did a flannel that I found from Sunflower Storytime that involves farm animals where the corn grows.  The kids each got an animal, and brought it up as I went through the rhyme of Little Boy Blue.  At the end we went through what each animal was and what they say.





Then we sang a fun song called, Zoom Zoom Zoom, that i got from Jbrary but that I changed up to be my own.  I gave everyone jingle bells because they loved using the instruments so much.  It was a hit 🙂

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom we’re going to the movies

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom we’re going to the movies

If you want to watch a movie 

Walk into the theater with me

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom we’re going to the movies 

In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 POPCORN!


We repeated the Popcorn Kernals Scarf Song again


Goodbye song with Lamb Chop.
