Baby/Toddler Story Time, 11/15

I changed the routine today, and I think that was a mistake. I'll probably go back to the usual way of doing things next week.

Opening Song: Hello, how are you? 

Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big  

Rhyme: Blue is the Lake

Book: I Look Like This by Nick Sharratt (1992)
This was a favorite at story time back in the Spring, so I brought it back today. Still a success.

Song: If You're Happy and You Know It (a cappella)

Book: Mommies Say Shhh! by Patricia Polacco (2007)
I didn't realize Patricia Polacco had a short, toddler-friendly book like this, but what a find! This was a great interactive experience, and provided the opportunity to say shhh just when we (read: the adults) got a bit noisy. I will definitely use this book again - what a nice change from my usual farm animal books.

Song: Old MacDonald Had a Farm (a cappella)

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: Head and Shoulders

Song: Hands Are For Clapping 

Flannel Board Rhyme: Five Little Turkeys
I had the kids pretend to waddle and say "gobble, gobble, gobble" each time a turkey went away, and that was fun, but the ending went over like a lead balloon. Still, it's my only turkey rhyme right now, so I'm kind of stuck with it unless I find something I like better.

Song: ABCD Medley 

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
