entertaining storytimes with spirit!

I was surprisingly tasked with creating a theme unit on Royalty and while the timing was short, I was thrilled with the theme! This theme goes beyond Fairy Tales which can be limiting and not particularly Toddler or Preschool friendly.

For this week I wanted to share my handsome army of Knights in Shining Armor!

Five Knights in Shining Armor
Five knights in shining armor,
Fearless and brave,
Went dragon hunting deep in a cave.
The dragon started breathing fire,
The knights’ knees were all aquiver,
So one little knight too off for the river!
(repeat counting down to zero)

The knights can be found by searching Google for ‘knights clipart’ and the rhyme was found here.

Next time I will share my multicultural princess crown matching flannel.

  1. Those guys look ready for anything…even storytime! 🙂

  2. It’s a fun rhyme. It’s a good thing whenever I can say a quiver.

  3. I *love* that rhyme! I’ve been meaning to a “princess and prince” storytime theme, and this would definitely fit in!

  4. Love it! We have a number of little boys who have exhausted our complete range of picture books featuring knights (there aren’t that many titles), and they would love this!

  5. […] Another inspired by Flannel Friday for me. This week’s rhyme comes from Storytime Moxie! […]

  6. I changed the rhyme so that one of the knights defeats the dragon in the end:

    Five knights in shining armor,
    Fearless and brave,
    Went dragon hunting on a quest,
    deep inside a cave.
    They found a dragon breathing fire,
    It looked at them and stared,
    And one knight ran away because he got too scared.
    (repeat counting down to one)
    LAST VERSE:
    One knight in shining armor,
    Fearless and brave,
    Went dragon hunting on a quest,
    deep inside a cave.
    He found a dragon breathing fire,
    It looked at him and stared,
    And he battled and defeated the dragon,
    because HE WASN’T SCARED.
