Peek-a-Boo! by Roberta Grobel Intrater


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

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

This is a great song to use when introducing the children and parents in the group!  After singing it the first time, we repeat it for each child, inserting his or her name in place of "friends".

Hickory, Dickory, Dock!

Hickory, Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one (clap once)
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, Dickory, dock!

additional verses"

...The clock struck two..the mouse said "Wooo!"
...The clock truck three,,,the mouse said, "Weeee!"
...the clock struck four...The mouse said, "No more!"

Hands Up High
(tune “London Bridge”)
First we wave our hands up high,
Hands up high, hands up high.
First we wave our hands up high.
Then we clap them!

Then we roll our hands down low,
Hands down low, hands down low.
Then we roll our hands down low.
Then we hide them! 


Pizza, Pizza, Pumpernickel

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

Criss Cross Applesauce

Criss cross, applesauce 
(draw an X on baby's back)
Spiders crawling up your back.
(use fingers to walk up child's back)
Crawling here, crawling there,
(lightly tickle one shoulder, then the other)
Spiders crawling in your hair.
(tickle baby's scalp)
Tight squeeze
(ghive a gentle hug)
Cool breeze (gently blow on child's neck or face)
And now you've got the shivers!
(tickle baby all over)

Our activity this week was Scarves!


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).
