Yummy in my Tummy Baby Lap Time, 4/25/13
Rhyme: Cheek Chin
Book: I Love to Eat by Amelie Graux
This book is a very basic board book that simply shows an object and labels it. I modeled reading this book by expanding on what was already on the page. It seemed to go over well.
Song: C is for Cookie
This was a cute sing-along. I used stick puppets to hold up a cookie, then a banana, a slice of pizza, and a grapefruit. The parents all knew the tune, so it worked perfectly!
Song: All the Little Babies
Song: Tony Chestnut
Rhyme: One Two
Book: Lunch by Denise Fleming
This book doesn't usually go over that well, but I found it easier to read to the babies than to larger groups.
Song with Stick Puppet: Do You Know the Muffin Man?
Song with Puppet: Mr. Sun
Song: A Bouncing We Will Go
Rhyme with Puppet: Hey Diddle Diddle
Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider
Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It
