Book Babies 3.2

on December 4, 2013

skunks

Our handouts are printed on both sides of a normal sheet of paper, folded in half to form a brochure of sorts. This go-round I’ve used a high-contrast image (adapted from photographs) on our covers. I also have an image by each rhyme, which creates a nice talking point for children too young to read. …and because I’m a very visual person.

We open each program with Baby Hop, from the CD Diaper Gym.

Then we read the first of two books, which alternate depending on what is available. See my Book Babies/Lapsit Titles page for suggestions.

I Went to the Zoo (We use stuffed animals with this, usually 5)

 I went to the zoo one day,

I met a tiger on my way,

This is what he had to say,

Roar, Roar, Roar, Roar!

I went to the zoo one day,

I met a Gorilla on my way,

This is what he had to say,

Ooo-oooo, Ooo-oooo,

Ooo-oooo, Ooo-oooo!

Roly Poly Caterpillar

Roly-poly caterpillar (creep finger along arm)

Into a corner crept,

Spun himself a blanket (wrap hand around finger, or hug body)

Then for a long time slept. (rest head on hands)

Roly-poly caterpillar

Wakening by and by (stretch arms)

Found himself with beautiful wings

Changed to a butterfly. (hook thumbs and wave hands, or wave arms)

Clap Your Hands from Wiggleworms Love You

Clap your hands, clap your hands,

Everybody clap your hands.

Clap your hands, clap your hands,

clap your hands, clap your hands,

Everybody clap your hands.

Stomp your feet…

Wave ‘hello’…

Brush your teeth…

Touch your nose…

Clap your hands…

We read our second book here.

Can We Find?
(We do this as a signing song. First we introduce the colors as we put them on the board, then use the sign for the animals as we sing. Four – six per program.)

tune: Muffin Man

Can we find an orange cat,
An orange cat,

an orange cat?
Can we find an orange cat?
We want to say hello!

I’m a Little Teapot

 I’m a little teapot short and stout.

Here is my handle here is my spout.

When I get all steamed up hear me shout.

Tip me over and pour me out!

Wheels on the Bus from Wiggleworms Love You

 The wheels on the bus go

round and round, round and round,

round and round.

The wheels on the bus go

round and round, all through the town.

The doors…

The driver…

The wipers…

The horn…

The muffler…

The people…

The babies…

The mommies

and the daddies…

Then we play Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton while we blow bubbles from our bubble machine.
