Hello, Friends!
(tune: "Goodnight Ladies")

Hello friends.

Hello friends.
Hello friends.
We're glad you came today!

The Baby in the Cradle

The baby in the cradle goes rock-a-rock-a-rock.
The baby in the cradle goes rock-a-rock-a-rock.
The baby in the cradle goes rock-a-rock-a-rock.
The baby in the cradle goes rock-a-rock-a-rock.

Additional verses:
The clock on the dresser goes tick-a-tick-a-tock...

The rain on the window goes tap-a-tap-a-tap...

Out comes the sun so we clap-a-clap-a-clap...

Itsy-Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider went up the waterspout.
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.


Dance Your Fingers Up

Dance your fingers up,
Dance your fingers down.
Dance your fingers to the side,
And dance them all around.

Dance them on your shoulders,
Dance them on your head.
Dance them on your tummy,
Now let's put them all to bed.

One Little Baby Rocking in a Tree

One little baby rocking in a tree. (adult gently rocks child)
Two little babies splashing in the sea. (adult/child make "splashing" motion)
Three little babies crawling on the floor. (move hands in "walking" motion in front of child)
Four little babies knocking at the door. (make a fist and "knock" in the air)
Five little babies playing hide and seek. (cover eyes with hands)
Don't look!  Don't look!
Until I say...PEEK! (uncover eyes)

Two Little Hands Go Clap, Clap, Clap

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.

This week's group activity was Musical Instruments!


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).
