Spring Animals Baby Lap Time, 4/11/13
Rhyme: Cheek Chin
Book: Hop! by Phyllis Root
I haven't used this book in a couple of years, and it wasn't as great as I remembered. It rhymes, though, and the babies did seem to enjoy hearing the language.
Rhyme: Hop Your Bunnies
Song: All the Little Babies
Book: In My Nest by Sara Gillingham
This would not have been my first choice for a baby story time book, but it worked out okay.
Rhyme with stick puppets: Two Little Blackbirds
My birds do not stay on my stick puppets because the birds are too large. Next time we might have to do this on the flannel board.
Song: Tony Chestnut
Rhyme: One Two, One Two
We'll keep using this one for a few weeks. It's catching on.
Rhyme: Mother and Father and Uncle John
Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Song: The Itsy Bitsy Spider
Rhyme with Puppets: I’m a Little Bumblebee
This group liked this rhyme much more than others I have shared it with recently.
Song: Head and Shoulders
Song: Where is Big Toe?
This is the perfect song to plug in when the program is running short and everybody's attention is still with you.
Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It
I use the same hello and goodbye songs at almost every session. Click here for the tunes and words. For descriptions of each of my story times, click here.
