Baby & Me Storytime

Presented at Bellevue Public Library on Tuesday, December 3 and Thursday, December 5, 2013.

Hugs and Kisses by Roberta Grobel Intrater


Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way!

Bells on bobtail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a
One-horse open sleigh! (repeat)

Clap, Clap, Clap Your Hands

Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap your hands together.

Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap your hands together.

Pat your knees...
Tap your feet...
Jump up high...
Give a hug...
Blow a kiss...
Wave hello...


Good Morning, Friends!
Good morning, _______!
Good morning, _______!
And how are you today?
I trust you had a good night's sleep,
And now you're ready to play!

We used this chant for our introductions this week.  As we went around the circle, we repeated the chant for each child, inserting their name in place of the word "friends".

Pizza, Pizza, Pumpernickel

Pizza, pizza, pumpernickel,
My little baby shall have a tickle.
One on the nose,
One on the toes,
And one of the tummy where the pizza goes!

I Have a Little Heart

I have a little heart
And it goes thump, thump, thump.
It keeps right on beating
When I jump, jump. jump.

I get a special feeling
When I look at you,
It makes me want to give you
A kiss or two!

Two Little Hands

Two little hands go clap, clap, clap.
Two little hands lay in my lap.
Two little feet go bump, bump, bump.
Two little feet give one big jump!
Two little hands reach oh, so high.
Two little hands wave bye, bye, bye.

Our activity this week was Board Books!

Our next Baby and Me Storytime will be Tuesday, December 10 and Thursday, December 12, 2013.

Each Baby & Me Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
