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

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

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are. 

They're a Part of Me!
(tune: "Do You Know the Muffin Man")

I can make my hands go clap,
Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap.
I can make my hands go clap.
They're a part of me!

Ideas for additional verses:

I can make make my feet go tap... eyes go blink... hands go pat... hands go wave...

One Bright Scarf
(tune: “Michael Finnegan”)

One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow,
Wiggle it high and wiggle it slow.
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
Where did it go?

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

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

Action Rhymes:

Little Bo Peep
(a rhyme with scarves)
Little Bo Peep
Has lost her sheep,
And doesn't know where to find them.
Leave them alone
And they'll come home,
Wagging their tales behind them!

Tick Tock!

Tick, tock, tick, tock, goes the clock.
Waiting for someone to knock, knock, knock.
My, oh my!  It's!
Quack! Quack!

Repeat this rhyme, choosing a different animal each time!


Our enrichment activity this week was Hand Puppets!
Puppets and stuffed animals are a fun way to interact with your child.  You can talk about the animals' names, the sounds they make, what their skin, fur or feathers is like, and whether or not the animal lives in your area or you've seen one at the zoo!

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).
