I originally came across this wonderful chant at
I was browsing through different librarian wiki’s when I first got hired. I wanted to get some ideas on library management with the little ones who seemed so wiggly!
I thought this would be perfect for my Pre-K and Kinder students, but ended up doing it even with my wiggly first graders. They absolutely LOVED it, and I would even hear them practicing it while they waited for me to join them on the carpet.
I printed the poster in color and took it to Office Max to make a larger, colored poster.
*Updated to include another version that says "Circle Time" instead of "Story time".
I hope you find this useful!
