Baby Storytime: 11/5/18

Hi guys, here is what we did in baby storytime this week:

  1. Movement Rhyme – Wake Up…

  2. This is a fun stretch to get our bodies moving before storytime. And it is great for babies because it helps us identify our body parts. I got the lyrics from Jbrary but I’ve seen this one around before.

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. ASL – The More We Get Together

We first teach the kids the signs for: More, Together, Happy & Friends. Then incorporate the signs as we sing the song. Check out 

Signing Savvy or Baby Sign Language to learn these signs.

  1. Song – Hands are for clapping by Jim Gill

  2. This is a fun movement song with easy follow along movements for the kids.

  3. Board Book – Hello Lamb by Jane CabreraThis is a new board book all about saying hello.

  4. Finger Play – The Itsy Bitsy Spider

  5. You know this classic rhyme and it is so fun to see how much the kids improve every time we do!

  1. Movement Song – Baby SharkI saw someone do hand movements to this song the other day, so I thought I’d give it a try.

  2. Flannel/Prop – Five Little Kernels

  3. An easy flannel all about popping popcorn.

  4. Book – A Band of Babies by Carole Gerber

  5. This one has a nice rhyme and is all about a baby band, which I love!

  6. Lift – Tick Tock, Tick Tock

  7. This is a fun lapsit rhyme with a lift at the end as we “cuckoo!”

Tick tock, tick tock, I’m a little cuckoo clock. Tick tock, tick tock, now it’s one o’clock. Cuckoo! (Lift baby into the air) Continue with two and three o’clock.

  1. Bounce – Trot Trot to Boston

  1. Obviously a day for classics!

  2. Song/Shakers – Mr. Sun by Raffi

  3. Gotta shake!

  4. Song/Bubbles – I took a bath in a washing machine by Jim Gill

  5. I love the bubble maker for the babies. Bubbles help babies because the same eye muscles the use to track the bubbles as they move, are the same muscles they will later use for reading.

  6. ASL – The More We Get Together

  7. I like to end with the same sign language song we used in the beginning.

  8. Song – Clean It Up

  9. Any good clean up song will work.

  10. Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell by Music Together

  11. I will always put this one on in the background as everyone leaves because I just love it!

How’d it go: This one went really well. We were right on time and I didn’t have to cut anything. My story, though cute, was a little long for my antsy little ones but fun all the same.

That’s all for now!
