Here is what we did during our last sessions this week:
Opening Song: Say Hello
Rhyme: Cheek Chin
Song: Bumpin' Up and Down in My Little Red Wagon
Flannel Board: Let's Make a Noise
What Does Baby Say? by Begin Smart Books (2008)This is my all-time favorite baby lap time book. I hope the families who have come to all three series so far aren't sick of it! (It doesn't seem like they are. The parents actually seem to really love it.)
Song: Tony Chestnut
Song: Eyes, Nose, Cheeky, Cheeky Chin
A dad who doesn't usually come to lap time commented, "This is too advanced for me." It is tricky, but I think that is part of the fun for the grown-ups!
Book: All of Baby, Nose to Toes by Victoria Adler (2009)
I really expected parents to pick up on the "Me! I do!" refrain, but none of them did. And this book really is too long for babies.
This has been my favorite rhyme of the entire series. I am thinking about rewriting it to suit animals like bats and owls for this summer.
Song: Mr. Sun
Song: If You're Happy and You Know It
Songs with Shaker Eggs:
- Can You Shake Your Egg With Me?
- ABC Song
Goodbye Song: Open, Shut Them Goodbye Song
