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. 

The Shape-Up Song
(tune: "The Farmer in the Dell")

We're jumping up and down.
We're jumping up and down.
We're getting lots of exercise.
We're jumping up and down.

Ideas for additional verses:
Let's bend and touch our toes...
Let's reach and touch the sky...
Let's kick our legs up high...
We're stomping our feet...
We're waving hello...

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!

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

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


Toast in the Toaster

I’m toast in the toaster, (gently bounce)
I’m getting very hot.
Tick, tock, tick, tock, (sway side to side)
Up I pop! (raise baby into the air)

Slowly, Slowly, Very Slowly

Slowly, slowly, very slowly creeps the garden snail.
(walk fingers over baby)
Slowly, slowly, very slowly up the wooden rail.

Quickly, quickly, very quickly runs the little mouse!

(run fingers over baby)    
Quickly, quickly, very quickly up into his house!

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).
