Baby & Me Storytime~ March 31 & April 2

This Baby & Me Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on March 31 & April 2, 2015.

This was an especially fun week at Baby & Me Storytime!  Since Bellevue Public Schools was on Spring Break, we had several school-age siblings (and a couple Baby & Me "graduates"!) join us for storytime.

Let's Shout Hooray!
(tune: "Old McDonald Had a Farm")

At storytime we have friends today.
We're so glad let's shout hooray!

As we go around the circle the adults introduce themselves and their little ones.  After each introduction we sing this song, replacing the word "friends" with the child's name!  It's always fun to raise our hand and shout "Hooray" at the end of each verse!

London Bridge

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down
My fair lady.


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!


Eight Little Piggies

Two little pigs lived in a pen, 
(hold up thumbs)
Each had 4 babies and that made ten.
(show both hands)
These four babies were snowy white,
(wiggle fingers on one hand)
These four babies were black as night
(wiggle fingers on other hand)
All eight babies loved to play,
(wiggle all fingers)
And they rolled and they rolled in the mud all day!
(roll hands)

Cuckoo Clock

Tick... tock... tick... tock,  ("tick, tock, tick, tock")

I’m a little cuckoo clock.  ("I’m a li...ttle cu-ckoo clock")
Tick... tock... tick...tock,  ("tick, tock, tick, tock")
Now I'm striking one o'clock.  ("Now I'm stri-king one o-clock")
CUCKOO!  ("Cu-ckoo")

Our activity this week was Jigsaw Puzzles!

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).
