Baby Storytime: 6/2/2022

Hello Rhyme – ASL HELLO

We teach the ASL signs for: Hello, Friends, Time and Say.

Hello friends,

Hello friends,

It’s time to say hello.

Literacy Tip - SING

Singing slows language down and breaks words into syllables. Early literacy tip for caregivers-Sing “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” with an adult and choose the animals. Act the animals out together or use puppets or stuffed animals.

Song – The More We Get Together by Raffi

Board Book – Toesy Toes by Sarah Tisiang

I pass out copies of this board book to encourage one-on-one reading.

Rhyme – Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.

Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.

Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain,

and the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Rhyme – Tommy Thumbs Up

Tommy Thumbs Up

Tommy thumbs up, Tommy thumbs down

Tommy thumbs dancing all over town.

Dance them on your shoulders,

Dance them on your head,

Dance them on your knees,

And tuck them into bed.

Prop/Flannel - Here is a Beehive...

For this one I have a beehive on a paint stick and I am wearing a glove with five bees, one for each finger.

Here is the beehive. Where are the bees?

(hold up fist)

Hidden away where nobody sees.

(move other hand around fist)

Watch and you’ll see them come out of the hive

(bend head close to fist)

One, two, three, four, five.

(hold fingers up one at a time)

Bzzzzzzzz… all fly away!

(wave fingers)

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)

Book – Whose Nose? By Sue Tarsky

Song – One Little Finger by Super Simple Song

Lift – Roly Poly

Roly poly, roly poly

Up, up, up

up, up, up

Roly roly poly

roly roly poly

down, down, down

down, down, down

Bounce – Tiny Little Babies

Tiny little babies love bouncin’ bouncin’

Tiny little babies love bouncin’, yeah

Tiny little babies love bouncin’, bouncin’

Tiny little babies love bouncin’ so

Bounce to the left, bounce to the right

Now hug that baby nice and tight!

Song/Shakers - Happy Feet by Joanie Bartels

Song/Bubbles - Bathtime by Joanie Bartels

Goodbye Rhyme – ASL GOODBYE

Goodbye friends,

Goodbye friends,

It’s time to say goodbye.

Song – Clean It Up by Laurie Berkner

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

How'd it go:

We ended great, but started out slow today. I think having the ASL hello song and using ASL in "The More We Get Together," was too much sign for this crew. Otherwise, we had a fun time!

That's all for now!
