I was very fortunate to have attended a workshop on November 14, 2013 hosted by the the amazingly talented, charming, and hypercreative Charlotte Diamond.

On sale were some amazing felts, including the “made-in-Canada” Slippery Fish, above. Not cheap but excellent quality!

And… I won a copy of Ms. Diamond’s new board book, Slippery Fish in Hawai’i, charmingly illustrated by John Aardema. Nice! (I was feeling lucky that afternoon!) Thanks for being a great teacher, Ms. Diamond, and thanks for the autograph and this one:

OPENING SONG | “So Happy You’re Here” by Hap Palmer

16 Jan

A brilliant way to start storytime! Thanks, Mr. Palmer!

SO HAPPY YOU’RE  HERE

Sing Doo wah doo, Tra la la, Yo-dle-ay, Sha na na
Hi dee hi, Howdy doo
It’s all a funny way to say, “We’re glad you’re here today!”

Now give yourself a pat on the back
Reach out and shake your own hand
Give a gentle squeeze to say you’re pleased We’re so happy you’re here today, today We’re so happy you’re here today

Sing Fee fi fo, Fiddly dee
Shooby doo, Golly gee
Skizzamaroo, An a hi to you
Now turn and face someone and say, “We’re glad you’re here today!”

Now give someone a pat on the back Reach out and shake a hand
Give a gentle squeeze to say you’re pleased We’re so happy you’re here today, today We’re so happy you’re here today

Activity:
This is a song to warm up our voices and welcome everyone to music and movement time. Listen to each funny phrase, then sing it back like an echo. During the first chorus, give yourself a pat on the back, shake your own hand, and give yourself a hug and squeeze. During the second chorus, give someone else a pat on the back, shake her/his hand, and give that person a gentle squeeze to say, “We’re so happy you’re here today!”

Instrumental:
Make up your own funny phrases. Write them on the board, then sing the song using your ideas. You can also create a funny motion that goes with each phrase and play follow the leader
