Baby Lap Time, 7/29

Opening Song: Clap Along With Me

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

Rhyme: Dance Your Fingers (twice)

Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider (a cappella; sung twice)

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

Book: In My Tree by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich (2009)
I love the owl finger puppet in this book, who peeks out of the center of each page while the scenery changes around him.  I'll have to remember this book for Fall, since it does have at least one scene with Fall leaves.

Song: Did You Ever See? (Flying Animals Edition)

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: Head and Shoulders

Book: Baby Faces by Margaret Miller (1998)
This was the perfect book for this group! I loved sharing the pictures of each baby's face and enjoyed the way the babies stared intently into the eyes of each one. The favorite by far was "boo-hoo!"

Flannel Board Song: How Much is that Doggie in the Window?

Rhyme: I Went to Visit the Farm One Day

Song: ABCD Medley

Song: Chickadee

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This

Tales for Twos and Threes, 7/29

Opening Song: Hello, how are you?

Song: If You'd Like to Read a Book


Book: Who Sank the Boat? by Pamela Allen (1982)
This was the perfect choice for this age group. Just enough text, and just enough invitations to interact with me. And the message that sometimes it's the smallest ones that make the biggest differences was delivered in a unique and amusing way. This was also surprisingly a good one for introducing the parts of a boat, such as the bow. 

Song: One Little Finger

Book: A Mighty Fine Time Machine by Suzanne Bloom (2009)
I debated and debated about whether to do this book, and it would have worked well if the audience had been just a bit older. I had a lot of toddlers and babies, and not so many twos and threes. But the few older kids who got engaged with this book really loved it and said so.
