Baby Storytime: 3/11/19

Here is what we did this week:

  • Hello Rhyme – Clap and Sing Hello
    • This is a new hello song for me so we will see how it goes. I created a flip-chart with “hello” on one side and “goodbye” on the other. Same words, just sub hello/goodbye.
  • ASL Baby Signs – PLEASE / THANK YOU / MORE
    • I’ve decided that for the babies, instead of teaching them a rhyme in sign language, that I am going to start teaching three vocabulary words each time. I generally use Baby Sign Language.com to check my signs.
  • Song – Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes51vcrr6iw2l._sx446_bo1204203200_
    • I like to use a slower version of this song for the babies. I’ve used Toddlers on Parade in the past.
  • Board Book – Will Bear Share? by Hilary Leung
    • This is one of the ones I pass out, so the caregiver can following along with baby on their laps. Sharing can be so difficult for the little ones, so I thought we start thinking about it with this book.
  • Rhyme – Cheek, Chin
    • I got this one from another library system. Great for identifying body parts and a fun lift at the end!

Cheek, chin, cheek, chin, cheek, chin, nose.
Cheek, chin, cheek, chin, cheek, chin, toes.
Cheek, chin, cheek, chin, up baby goes!

  • Rhyme/Flannel – Ice Cream Scoop
    • I found a cute little rhyme from the Perry Public Library . We can count the scoops, identify the ice cream colors/flavors or we can do the rhyme with hand movement.

      First we need a cone, Nice and crunchy
      Then we need some ice cream, Sweet and yummy,
      Scoop ’em on; stack ’em on’ Up to the sky
      We love ice cream; my, oh my!
      First comes vanilla, Cold and sweet
      Then comes chocolate A delicious treat.
      Here’s some strawberry; Orange sherbet, too,
      A super-duper scooper cone Just for you!
      One scoop, two scoops, Three scoops, four.
      We love ice cream Let’s have some more!

  • Rhyme – Well hello everybody
    • This is another one I found online and seems like it would be great for the babies and early toddlers.

Well hello everybody can you touch your nose, touch your nose, touch your nose?
Well hello everybody can you touch your nose, touch your nose?

Well hello everybody can you touch your toes, touch your toes, touch your toes?
Well hello everybody can you touch your toes, touch your toes?

(Pat your head, rub your tummy…)

  • Song – Skidermarink by RaffiA classic song, with simple movement.
  • Book – Big Fat Hen by Keith Baker
    • I haven’t used this one in forever and it’s got lovely big pictures and counting, which is great!
  • Lift – Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
    • We lift when we blast off at the end!61sdp4xeisl._sx456_bo1204203200_

Zoom, zoom, zoom
We’re going to the moon.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
We’re going to the moon.
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blast off!

  • Bounce –  I Bounce You Here

I bounce you here, I bounce you there
I bounce you, bounce you everywhere
I tickle you here, I tickle you there
I tickle you, tickle you everywhere
I hug you here, I hug you there
I hug you, hug you everywhere

  • Song/Shaker – Can’t Stop the Feeling by Trolls
    • I’ve been trying to pick songs that the adults will have fun dancing and shaking to, too!
  • Song/Bubbles – Bubbles by Parachute Express
    • Just your usual bubble song, so we can work our little eye muscles, tracking the movement of the bubbles in preparation for reading!
  • Goodbye Rhyme – Clap and Sing Goodbye
    • We end the same way we started.
  • Song – Clean It Up
    • Any good clean up song will work.
  • Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell by Music Together
    • I will always put this one on in the background as everyone leaves because I just love it!

How’d it go: A good crew this time. I added an Itsy Bitsy Spider, but other than that, things ran pretty smoothly.

That’s all for now!
