Virtual Baby Storytime 7/10/2021

I volunteered to do a last minute baby storytime this week. Good thing baby storytimes are my favorite! Here's what I have planned:


Welcome, Welcome Everyone Welcome, welcome everyone. Now you’re here, we’ll have some fun. First we’ll clap our hands just so. Then we’ll bend and touch our toes. Welcome, welcome everyone. Now you’re here, we’ll have some fun!


ASL – MORE / EAT / ALL DONE

We will go over simple American Sign Language signs. Some of the easiest and most popular ones for young babies.


Tap your Toes and Follow Me by Susan Salidor Tap your toe and follow me (3x) Follow me and tap your toe. Then we can sway from side to side We can sway from side to side We can sway from side to side Tap your toe and follow me. Clap your hands and follow me (3x) Follow me and clap your hands. Knock your knees and follow me (3x) Follow me and knock your knees. Bob your head your head and follow me (3x) Follow me and bob your head.

Our Hands Say Thank You… Our hands say thank you with A clap, clap, clap; Our feet say thank you with a Tap, tap, tap. Clap, clap, clap! Tap, tap, tap! We roll our hands around, and say, “Good-bye.”


How'd it go:

Man, I missed doing baby storytime! I did a bunch of my favorite rhymes and books, so it was a lot of fun. Small crowd because it is such a nice day, but it looked like everyone had a good time!


That's all for now!
