Baby Storytime: 6/16/22

Hello Rhyme – H.E.L.L.O

Clap out every letter of "HELLO"

Let’s clap and say hello…

H.E. L. L. O.

H.E. L. L. O.

H.E. L. L. O.

Let’s clap and say good morning.

Literacy Tip - TALK

Talking to a child will build their vocabulary and storytelling skills. Use unfamiliar words and explain their meaning. Early literacy tip for caregivers- Have a grownup narrate what they are doing to baby—for example—we are getting ready to go to the store, so we need to put your shoes and coat on, get Mommy’s purse and car keys, lock the door, etc.

Song – Hands Are for Clapping by Jim Gill

Board Book – Ten Little Owls by Renee Treml

Rhyme – Open and Shut Them

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!

Rhyme – This Little Train

The little train ran up the track (run fingers up arm)

Toot, toot, toot (make train noises)

And then it came toot-tooting back (run fingers down arm)

Toot, toot, toot (make train noises)

Prop/Flannel - Little Bunny in a Hat

Little bunny in a hat

Sitting so still

Will it come out?

Yes it will!

It looks to the left

It looks to the right

It looks straight ahead

And pops out of sight.

Book – I Will Love You Till the Cows Come Home by Kathryn Cristaldi

Rhyme – I’m a Little Tea Pot

I’m a little teapot

Short and stout.

Here is my handle,

Here is my spout.

When I get all steamed up

Hear me shout:

Tip me over

And pour me out!

Song – Action Song by The Singing Walrus

Lift – Toast in the Toaster

Toast in the toaster

Getting very hot!

Tick-tock, tick-tock

Up you pop!

Bounce – Hop With Me

Hop, hop, hop along

Or bounce on someone’s knee

Higher and higher and higher and higher

Bunny-hop with me!

Song/Shakers - Happy Feet by Joanie Bartels

Song/Bubbles - Bathtime by Joanie Bartels

Goodbye Rhyme – See You Later Alligator

See you later, alligator (Wave goodbye)

In a while, crocodile

Give a hug, ladybug (Hug yourself)

Blow a kiss, jellyfish (Blow a kiss)

See you soon, big baboon

Out the door, dinosaur (March)

Take care, polar bear

Wave goodbye, butterfly (Wave goodbye)

Song – Clean It Up by Laurie Berkner

Song – Goodbye, So Long, Farewell by K. Guilmartin

How'd it go:

We had a good crew today and the outline went really well. Everyone seemed to have a good time. I did end up skipping some pages in our second book, but it is a really sweet one and calming to read before a nap and bedtime.

That's all for now!
