Song Cube/D6 of Singing
A couple months ago there was a Storytime Underground post about making a song cube. I finally decided to create my own felt one. I got an 8x8 Styrofoam cube from the craft store and wrapped it in felt. Then I velcroed felt icons representing songs on each side . (Velcro will allow the songs to be eventually switched out) At storytime, I will throw it up in the air and we will sing the song on whichever side faces the audience. I’m totally stoked about this…
Addendum: The kids loved it! I enjoy how the element of randomness helps keep my storytime feelin’ fresh. If I made another one, which I most likely will, I would use soft poly-foam instead of Styrofoam.
Here are the songs:
I recommend slowing down when we get to LMNOP so the children understand they are different letters. Thanks TMBG!
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
I think this baby looks like young Aaron Burr, sir.
“Pop! Pop! Pop! Put the corn in the pot! (Squat down and clap out the syllables)
Pop! Pop! Pop! The corn is getting hot!
Pop! Pop! Pop! Popcorn! (Jump up at “Popcorn!”)
Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Tick tock, tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock. (rock back and forth while singing)
Tick tock, tick tock, STOP!
What time is it?
It’s one o’clock.
Cuckoo! (jump into the air one time)
(Continue with two, three, four and five o’clock.)
If You’re Happy and You Know It
We just do clap your hands to keep it short.
