Baby/Toddler Lap Time, 9/30

Opening Song: Hello, how are you? 

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

Rhyme: Dance Your Fingers (twice)

Book: Ten Little Caterpillars by Bill Martin, Jr., illustrated by Lois Ehlert (2011)
This book has everything - big, bold colors, counting, and rhyming text. The group was restless today, but a lot of little eyes grew wider when they saw the images in this book.

Song: Flutter, Flutter Butterfly (a cappella with butterfly puppet)

Song: You Are My Sunshine (a cappella with sun puppet)

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: Head and Shoulders

Book: Kitten's Autumn by Eugenie Fernandes (2010)
I love the simple, yet evocative language in this book. And the illustrations include everything I love about Fall!

Song: One Little Finger

Song: Tommy Thumb

Flannel Board Rhyme: Five Little Squirrels
Five little squirrels sitting by the door,
One ran away and then there were four.
For little squirrels climbing up a tree,
One ran away and then there were three.
Three little squirrels with coats so new.
One ran away and then there were two.
Two little squirrels warming in the sun,
One ran away leaving only one.
One little squirrel wasn't having any fun,
He ran away and then there were none.

Song: The Wheels on the Bus (Raffi) 

Song: ABCD Medley

Song: Chickadee 

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
