Hack My Storytime: Sick Theme for Preschoolers

Ok folks, another storytime for you to hack. The theme is perfect for this time of year when it seems like everyone is sick!

There are many ways to play.

Read over the storytime outline below and consider your options.

1) Have ideas to improve it, but don’t want to re-write the whole outline? Leave your ideas in the comments.

2) Want to re-vamp the whole thing with your own personal spin? Great! Send an email to storytimeunderground at gmail with your post-hacking outline. If you choose this route explain WHY you made the changes you did.

3) You don’t have anything to add to this outline but would like a storytime outline of your own to be hacked. Email your outline to us!

And now, without further ado, I give you the “Sick” Storytime from Lindsay. She did this storytime in the first few months of her storytiming career for an audience of 3-5 year olds.

The More We Get Together with signs, including a storytime verse:

It’s time to hear a story, a story, a story.

It’s time to hear a story. I’ll read it to you.

So sit on my carpet, get ready to listen.

It’s time to hear a story. I’ll read it to you.

Doctor in the Clinic with flannel: to the tune of ”The Farmer in the Dell”

The doctor in the clinic.
The doctor in the clinic.
Hi-ho the derry-o,
The doctor in the clinic.

The doctor takes a nurse…
The nurse takes a patient…
The patient gets help…
The patient gets better…
