Baby Lap Time, 7/8

What a great story time! Sometimes everything just clicks - the right songs, the right books, the right crowd - and the result is the most perfect session. Today was one of those.

Opening Song: Clap Along With Me

Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big (twice)

Rhyme: Dance Your Fingers (twice)

Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider (a cappella; once with hand motions, once with puppets.)

Song: You Are My Sunshine (a cappella; with sunshine puppet; sung twice)

Book: Bouncy Baby by Begin Smart Books (2009)
This book shows all the actions baby does throughout the day. A situation from daily life is presented, and then beneath the flap is baby's reaction - clapping, eating, waving, etc. Some of the families chose to do the actions; others just listened.

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: Head and Shoulders

Book: Binky by Leslie Patricelli (2005)
Baby looks everywhere for his Binky, but no one seems to have it - not fishy, or doggie, or even Mommy or Daddy. But in the end, he finds it right where it belongs. Lots of adults joined in on the chorus of "No!" when Binky was found not to be in a given place.  I will definitely use Leslie Patricelli's books again in the future.

Song: ABCD Medley 

Song: Where is Thumbkin? 

Song: Old MacDonald Had a Farm (a cappella with puppets) 

Song: Chickadee 

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
