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.

My Little Baby
(tune: "Someone's in the Kitchen With Dinah")

My little baby is (baby's name),
Cutest little baby I kno-o-o-oh.
My little baby is (baby's name),
And I love you so!

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

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


I love you!
I love you!

I love you in the morning
And in the afternoon.
I love you in the evening
And underneath the moon, oh,

I love you!


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)

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.

Our activity this week was Board Books!

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).
