Here are some songs and/or rhymes we might do in storytime:

Movement: Making Cookies
I am making cookie dough                                  point to self
Round and round the beaters go                      roll your arms
Add some flour from a cup                                 pour from cup
Stir and mix the batter up                                   pretend to stir

Roll them, cut them nice and neat                   pretend to roll and cut
Put them on a cookie sheet                                pretend to lay out on sheet
Bake them, count them, 1, 2, 3                         count with fingers
Then serve them to my friends for tea          pretend to eat cookies

Rhyme: Ten Little Cookies
Ten little cookies laying on a plate
Mom eats two and then there are 8.

When Dad comes home, two cookies he picks
Leaving on the plate only 6.

Brother comes home, slamming the door.
He eats two cookies, then there are 4.

When sister comes home, there are still a few
She eats a couple, then there are 2.

Baby wakes up. His nape is done.
He eats a cookie, then there is 1.

The cat jumps on the table and eats the last one.
Poor dog!  He’s too late.  He only gets a crumb.

Song: “C Is For Cookie” the Cookie Monster song!
“C” is for cookie, that’s good enough for me.
“C” is for cookie, that’s good enough for me.
“C” is for cookie, that’s good enough for me.
Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with “C”!

Song: Down Around the Corner: Bakery Edition
Down around the corner at the bakery shop,
Were 5 little cookies with sugar on top,
Along came someone with some money to spend,
And they took a little cookie to share with a friend.

See you there!
