Our third week in England had us looking at Tea Time! Would you care to have a cup of tea with me? How about a tea party in storytime? Here are the plans!

Passport Pals England – Tea Time

Welcome! Let’s sing our welcome song! Come on everybody and clap your hands . . . stomp your feet . . . stand on one leg . . . shake your arm . . . jump up high . . . spin around . . . sit right down . . . watch me spin the globe . . . on the way to Passport Pals.

Today we are going to talk about something special that people in England enjoy and that is TEA TIME! Share some fun facts about tea time.

Let’s take a look at some Tea Party Rules.

ReadTea Party Rules” by Ame Dyckman

Song:  “I’m a Little Teapot” (with motions). You can do it a capella or use a cd. We used Dr. Jean’s Nursery Rhyme cd.

Read “Tea Rex” by Molly Idle

Sing: Dino Ditty (with dinosaurs for them to hold — we have a bunch of dinosaurs cut out and laminated that I used for this song.)

Sung to: “Do Wah Diddy Diddy”

Here he comes just a stomping with his feet, (Stomp.)
Singing “Dino ditty, ditty dum ditty do.”
(Clap.)
Searching all around for something good to eat,
(Hand over brow.)
Singing “Dino ditty, ditty dum ditty do.”
(Clap.)
He’s huge.  [He’s huge.] He’s strong.  [He’s strong.]
(Stretch out arms; then bend elbows and make fist)
He’s huge, he’s strong, won’t be hungry very long.
(Repeat arm motions; then shake finger “no.”)
“Dino ditty, ditty dum ditty do.”
(Clap.)
“Dino ditty, ditty dum ditty do.”
(Clap.)

ReadThe Tiger Who Came to Tea” by Judith Kerr
