Let's Shout Hooray!
(tune: “Old McDonald”)

At storytime we have (child's nametoday.
We're so glad, let's shout hooray!

Come Along and Sing With Me
(tune: “Mary Had a Little Lamb”)

Come along and sing with me,
Sing with me, sing with me.
Come along and sing with me,
On a sunny (windy, rainy, snowy) Tuesday (Wednesday, etc.)
Additional verses:


You Are My Sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.

You make me happy when skies are gray.
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away!


Dance Your Fingers Up
Dance your fingers up,
Dance your fingers down
Dance your fingers to the side,
Dance them all around
Dance them on your shoulders,
Dance them on your head
Dance them on your tummy,
And put them all to bed.


Pop! Pop! Pop!
(clap in rhythm each time you say "pop")
Pour the corn into the pot.
(rub palms of hands together briskly)
Pop! Pop! Pop!
(clap in rhythm each time you say "pop")
Take and shake it 'til it's hot.
(rub palms of hands together)
Pop! Pop! Pop!
(clap in rhythm each time you say "pop")
Lift the lid.  What have you got?
(rub palms of hands together)
Pop... pop... pop...
(clap in rhythm each time you say "pop")
(raise arms or lift baby gently into the air!)

Our activity this week was Jigsaw Puzzles!

"At Storytime we have friends today... 

We're so glad, let's shout, Hooray!"


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).
