Circus by Lois Ehlert

Miss Bindergarten Plans a Circus With Kindergarten by Joseph Slote, illustrated by Ashley Wolff


Let's All Go To the Circus Today
(tune: "Mary Had a Little Lamb")

Let's all go to the circus today,
The circus today, the circus today!
Let's all go to the circus today
And watch the animals play!

Additional verses:
See the lions jump through the the circus today!
See the big seal balancing a the circus today!
See the little dog jump and the circus today!
See the horses prance so the circus today!


Funny Clown

Funny clown, funny clown,
Spin around.
Funny clown, funny clown,
Jump up and down.
Funny clown, funny clown,
Touch your toes.
Funny clown, funny clown,
Honk your nose!

I have really enjoyed my monthly visits to Miss Jenny's classroom this year!  The children are always excited to see my puppet friend, Wesley, and to share a snack with him following storytime!   Thanks to the children and teachers for the wonderful surprise they prepared for me today!  They sang a very silly song about an alligator.  I'll probably be singing the refrain in my head all day long!  "Aaa-lligator, Aaa-lligator! Can be a friend to you!"
I hope everyone has a fun and safe summer!
Don't forget: you are always welcome at the Bellevue Public Library!!!

Each Outreach Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
