Please Sit Down And Storytime Music Lyrics and Actions

♫ Shhh. Be quiet. [Hold your finger to your lips.]
Please sit down. [Pretend to sit down, or do the American Sign Language sign for "sit."]
Please sit down.
Please sit down.

Shhh. Be quiet.
Please sit down.
Listen. Listen. Listen. [Place your hand to your ear.]

Shhh. Be quiet.
Please sit down.
Please sit down.
Please sit down.

Shhh. Be quiet.
Please sit down.
Listen. Listen. Listen. ♫

Classroom Benefits

This is a great song to prepare children for storytime. The music by itself signals to the children that it's time to be quiet and pay attention. The lyrics and gestures are super simple and very easy to learn. After two verses, there is 6 minutes of calming background music, perfect for reading a story or another quite time activity.

Activity Ideas

Use this song to transition to storytime or any other quiet activity. 1

Even if children sit down right away and are ready, sing and gesture both verses to give them time to settle down and be ready to pay attention to the next activity. 2
