Baby Storytime 5/29/14

Book read: Do Cows Meow by Salina Yoon

A Bouncing We Will Go (from Jbrary)
A bouncing we will go,
A bouncing we will go,
High ho the derry-o
A bouncing we will go!
Other verses include a hugging we will go, a rocking we will go, a clapping we will go, etc.

Grand Old Duke of York (from Perry Public Library)
Oh, the Grand Old Duke of York, (bounce baby)
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up to the top of the hill, (lift baby)
And he marched them down again. (bring baby down)
And when they're up, they're up, (lift baby)
And when they're down, they're down, (bring baby down)
And when they're only halfway up, (bring baby halfway up)
They're neither up nor down. (lift baby down then up)

My Pony Macaroni (from Eugene Library)
I have a little pony (bounce baby)
His name is Macaroni.
He trots and trots and then he STOPS! (stop)
My funny little pony!

Giddyup, Giddyup (from King County Library System)
Giddyup, giddyup ride to town, (bounce baby on your lap)
Giddyup, giddyup, up and down.
Giddyup fast, (bounce quickly)
Giddyup slow, (bounce slowly)
Giddyup, giddyup, WHOA! (dip baby backwards)

Motorboat, motorboat
Motorboat, motorboat go so slow, (move baby's legs slowly)
Motorboat, motorboat, go so fast, (speed up)
Motorboat, motorboat, step on the gas! (stretch baby's legs out)

I'm a little cuckoo clock (from Born to Read)
Tick tock, tick tock, (rock baby back and forth)
I'm a little cuckoo clock.
Tick tock, tick tock,
It's one o'clock! (lift baby once)

Tick tock, tick tock,
I'm a little cuckoo clock.
Tick tock, tick tock,
It's two o'clock! (lift baby twice)

Wheels on the Bus

Popcorn (from Perry Public Library with parachute)
Popcorn, popcorn (lift parachute)
Sitting in the pot.
Shake it, shake it (shake parachute)
Pop! Pop! Pop! (lift parachute 3 times)

Row, row, row your boat (with parachute)

The Elevator Song (done with parachute, from Jbrary)
Oh the city is great and the city is grand.
There's a whole lot of people on a little piece of land.
And we live way up on the 57th floor.
This is what we do when we go out the door:
We take the elevator up and the elevator down.
We take the elevator up and the elevator down.
And we turn around.

Literacy tip of the week: Encourage your baby to point to objects in a book as you read. This helps keep them engaged with the story. It also helps build their fine motor skills.
