Hello, hello, hello.

It’s time to say hello.

Hello, today, to all my friends.

Hello, hello, 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 – Roll Your Hands by Kimbo Children’s Music

Board Book – Five Little Ducks illustrated by Jose Arugeo and Ariane Dewey

Rhyme – Hickory Dickory Doc

Hickory, dickory, dock,

The mouse ran up the clock;

The clock struck one,

And down he run,

Hickory, dickory, dock.

Rhyme – Little Heart

I have a little heart, (place hand over heart)

And it goes thump, thump, thump (pat chest three times)

It keeps right on beating,

When I jump, jump, jump (jump three times)

I get a special feeling, when I look at you. (point to child)

It makes me want to give you a hug or two. (hug yourself)

Prop/Flannel - It's So Much Fun to Share

It’s so much fun to share.

Cuckoo! (Lift baby into the air)

Bounce – Rock the Baby

Rock the baby, rock the baby, 1-2-3

How'd it go:

Goodness, this was a big group. I am seriously going to have to consider tickets soon. Because we were so big, it was a bit louder than normal and a lot of older guys in the storytime. I ended up cutting out my sharing prop rhyme. It went well but... phew!

That's all for now!
