									         Families Sing Music Kit: Noisy Songs and Stories
Library storytimes are designed to enhance a child’s language development by giving
them a variety of experiences. Take this Families Sing Music Kit home and create your
own family storytime at home with our books, felt board stories, fingerplays, songs,
music and action rhymes.

Although we have included a plan to use all the materials in one 45-minute sitting, each
item can be used independently or with just one or two other items.

We hope you have fun exploring each theme in your home and at your own pace!

7) Felt Board Story: “The Elegant Rooster”

As you tell the story, have the children put up each figure.
Once upon a time there was a very elegant rooster. He was going to the wedding of his
friend, Tio Perico, and was all clean and neat. He knew he had to stay clean, but he
saw a beautiful kernel of corn, his favorite food. Unfortunately, it was sitting on a heap
of garbage. The rooster ate that kernel of corn and he did get dirty. Now he looked
around to see if there was any help to clean him, and he saw a daisy. “Oh daisy, please
clean my beak. I must be neat and clean for the wedding of my friend, Tio Perico.”
But the daisy said, “No quiero! I don’t want to!”
So, the rooster looked around and saw a sheep. “Sheep, eat this daisy. The daisy
won’t clean my beak, and I won’t be able to go to the wedding of my friend, Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the sheep. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw a dog.
“Dog, nip the sheep on the leg. The sheep won’t eat the daisy, the daisy won’t clean my
beak, and I won’t be able to go to the wedding of Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the dog. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw a stick.
“Stick, hit the dog. The dog won’t nip the sheep, the sheep won’t eat the daisy, and the
daisy won’t clean my beak, and I won’t be able to go to the wedding of Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the stick. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw a fire.
“Fire, burn this stick. The stick won’t hit the dog, the dog won’t nip the sheep, the sheep
won’t eat the daisy, the daisy won’t clean my beak, and I won’t be able to go to the
wedding of Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the fire. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw some water.
“Water, put out this fire. The fire won’t burn……”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the water. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw the sun.
“Sun, dry up this water. The water won’t put out the fire, the fire won’t burn…….”
“I’ll do what you ask,” said the sun, “if you promise to crow three times every morning
and wake me up.”
“I promise,” said the rooster.
And so……The sun began to dry up the water. The water began to put out the fire.
The fire began to burn the stick. The stick began to hit the dog. The dog began to nip
the sheep. The sheep began to eat the daisy. The daisy cleaned the rooster’s beak.
The rooster once again looked very, very clean and very, very elegant. And so he went
off to the wedding of Tio Perico. He ate and he danced and he had a wonderful time.
He didn’t get home until very late that evening. Still, he did not forget his promise to the
sun.
And since then, every morning, the rooster crows,
Ask the children what the rooster says. They will probably say “Cock-a-doodle-
doo.” Remind them that this rooster comes from Spain, and he says:
Quiquiriqui
Quiquiriqui
Quiquiriqui
And the sun wakes up!

8) Read/listen to What Charlie Heard by Mordecai Gerstein

This book is a perfect match with the CD. It explains how a composer is influenced by
the sounds all around him to compose his music. After listening to the CD, talk about
the sounds we all hear around us. There are noises in our house, from beeps and
rings, to the heat turning on, water running. Then turn to noises outside: nature to
traffic. What are our favorite sounds? What noises scare us?

9) Listen to “Old MacDonald’s Farm” on Indian Elephant Tea CD.

Play with the animals and their sounds.

10.) Read The Wheels on the Race Car by Alexander Zane

This book can be sung. You can read it first, then do it as a song, as you turn the
pages. Let the children “reve” their engines!

11) Play: “Red Light, Green Light” (make red, yellow, and green circles)

Red says STOP
And Green says GO
Yellow says WAIT
You’d better go slow.

Have the children stand at the end of a room or outdoors. Using the color circles, have
them come forward with green and yellow and then stop on red. If you have enough
room, you may have the children come forward quickly with the green and slowly with
the yellow.

12) Art Activity

It is always fun to extend your reading and music time with other activities.

   1. Make a simple skeleton with black paper, q-tips and a white paper skull. (This
      isn’t supposed to be “authentic.” It is arm bones, leg bones and ribs plus a
      backbone.) Listen to the CD Dem Bones as everyone works on their skeleton.
   2. Make little books of things that make noises. Cut out pictures from magazines,
      use stamps and stencils of favorite animals and the sounds they make. You
      could make a weather book of thunder, rain, and the sounds of nature.
   3. Make a picture of a racetrack. Cut out pictures of sports cars and place them on
      a road.
   4. Listen to the CDs and color pictures of what the music sounds like in color and
      lines.
   5. Have child find “instruments” from the kitchen, and keep the beat with their hands
      or spoons on the different songs from the CDs. They should use pots, bowls,
      and aluminum pans, anything that YOU agree to – not just what they can reach!
   6. Go to a parade! Let children view a parade, or march in one if you have a
      chance. Or make a parade outside, around the house. Make hats and make
      noise!
                       Felt Board Story: “The Elegant Rooster”

Story includes rooster, kernel of corn, garbage heap, daisy, sheep, dog, stick, fire,
water, sun,

As you tell the story, have the children put up each figure.
Once upon a time there was a very elegant rooster. He was going to the wedding of his
friend, Tio Perico, and was all clean and neat. He knew he had to stay clean, but he
saw a beautiful kernel of corn, his favorite food. Unfortunately, it was sitting on a heap

clean my beak. I must be neat and clean for the wedding of my friend, Tio Perico.”
But the daisy said, “No quiero! I don’t want to!”
So, the rooster looked around and saw a sheep. “Sheep, eat this daisy. The daisy
won’t clean my beak, and I won’t be able to go to the wedding of my friend, Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the sheep. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw a dog.
“Dog, nip the sheep on the leg. The sheep won’t eat the daisy, the daisy won’t clean my
beak, and I won’t be able to go to the wedding of Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the dog. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw a stick.
“Stick, hit the dog. The dog won’t nip the sheep, the sheep won’t eat the daisy, and the
daisy won’t clean my beak, and I won’t be able to go to the wedding of Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the stick. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw a fire.
“Fire, burn this stick. The stick won’t hit the dog, the dog won’t nip the sheep, the sheep
won’t eat the daisy, the daisy won’t clean my beak, and I won’t be able to go to the
wedding of Tio Perico.”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the fire. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw some water.
“Water, put out this fire. The fire won’t burn……”
“No quiero. No quiero,” said the water. “I don’t want to.”
The rooster looked around and he saw the sun.
“Sun, dry up this water. The water won’t put out the fire, the fire won’t burn…….”
“I’ll do what you ask,” said the sun, “if you promise to crow three times every morning
and wake me up.”
“I promise,” said the rooster.
And so……The sun began to dry up the water. The water began to put out the fire.
The fire began to burn the stick. The stick began to hit the dog. The dog began to nip
the sheep. The sheep began to eat the daisy. The daisy cleaned the rooster’s beak.
The rooster once again looked very, very clean and very, very elegant. And so he went
off to the wedding of Tio Perico. He ate and he danced and he had a wonderful time.
He didn’t get home until very late that evening. Still, he did not forget his promise to the
sun.
And since then, every morning, the rooster crows,
Ask the children what the rooster says. They will probably say “Cock-a-doodle-
doo.” Remind them that this rooster comes from Spain, and he says:
Quiquiriqui
Quiquiriqui
Quiquiriqui
And the sun wakes up!
