Bee Storytime- PreSchool

Buzz Buzz!  Our storytime theme last week was BEES!  I wore black, white and of course yellow in honor of our theme :)

Our opening song was VERY relative to our theme today… We always start with the rhyme Rickety Tickety!

Bee Songs & Fingerplays

Here is the beehive
source: HCPL

Here is the beehive, [clench fist]
Where are the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
Watch and you’ll see them come out of their hive
[bring out fingers one at a time]

one, two, three, four, five.
Buzz, buzz, buzz.

A Bee is on Your Nose
source: The Storytime Spot

A bee is on your nose.
A bee is on your nose.
Hi ho just watch me blow
A bee is on your nose.

(Repeat the song using different body parts.)

I also did an activity that I called Bee Subtraction!  I printed out 6 different bees and then we counted them and did some simple subtraction.

Full disclosure:  I did this storytime in the middle of a HUGE shifting project so it was all very last minute!  Sorry for a short one this week!
