Baby Storytime: 10/7/19

Baby Storytime: 10/7/19 

  1. Hello Rhyme – Wake Up Feet

  2. This is a fun movement rhyme for the babies.

Wake up feet, wake up feet Wake up feet and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle Wake up feet, wake up feet Wake up and wiggle in the morning. (Also: hands, ears, knees, fingers, hips, etc.)


  1. For my babies I teach them three vocabulary words in American Sign Language each week. We do a lot of repeats and stick to the easy movement signs. I generally use Baby Sign to check my signs.

  2. Song –  Fingers, Nose and Toes by Cedarmont Kids

  3. A simple, slow movement song.

  4. Board Book – Home Sweet Home by Little Friends

  5. These are big flap flippers and can be read or used to point out the animals. I pass these out to encourage one-on-one reading.

  6. Rhyme – Open and Shut Them

  7. We all know this one and it is perfect for the babies.

Open, shut them Open, shut them Give a little clap, clap, clap! Open, shut them Open, shut them Lay them in your lap, lap lap. Creep them crawl them , creep them crawl them Right up to your chin, chin chin Open up your little mouth But do not let them in!

  1. Song –  Skinamarink

  2. I think I like doing this one more than anyone else.

  3. Finger Play – Baby’s Fingers

These are baby’s fingers (touch fingers) These are baby’s toes (touch toes) This is baby’s belly button (touch stomach) Round and round it goes! (tickle) Rhymes for Babies

  1. Rhyme – Cheek Chin, Cheek Chin

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

  1. Book – Littles: and how they grow by Kelly Dipucchio

  2. This may be more of a book for the grownups but it is all about babies and how time flies.

  3. Lift – Roly Poly

  4. This one is fun to say!


Roly poly, roly poly Up, up, up up, up, up Roly roly poly roly roly poly down, down, down down, down, down (

  1. Song/Shakers – Mr. Sun by Raffi

  2. Time to pass those shakers out and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!

  3. Song/Bubbles – I Took a Bath in a Washing Machine by Jim Gill

  4. Bubbles are great because when we track the bubbles with our eyes, we are actually strengthening the eye muscles we later use when we learn to read.

  5. Goodbye Rhyme – Our Hands Say Thank You

Our hands say thank you with A clap, clap, clap; Our feet say thank you with a Tap, tap, tap. Clap, clap, clap! Tap, tap, tap! We roll our hands around, and say, “Good-bye.” (

That’s all for now!
