Hello Rhyme – Wake Up Feet
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.)
ASL – BABY / MILK / DIAPER
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 Language.com to check my signs.
Song – Fingers, Nose and Toes by Cedarmont Kids
A simple, slow movement song.
Board Book – Home Sweet Home by Little Friends
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.
Rhyme – Open and Shut Them
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!

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.
