Baby Storytime 10/2/14

Book read: Peekaboo Morning by Rachel Isadora

Roll, Roll, Sugar Babies (from Reading Chick via Mel's Desk)
Roll roll sugar babies, (roll baby's hands)
Roll roll sugar babies,
Push (lean forward)
Pull (lean back)
And clap, clap, clap! (clap, clap, clap)
(For additional verses, substitute other opposites for push and pull. We used "up" and "down" and "left"and "right".)

This Is The Way (from Mel's Desk)
This is the way we wash our arms,
Wash our arms, wash our arms.
This is the way we wash our arms,
When we're in the bathtub.
(repeat using legs, tummy, head, etc)

Jack be Nimble
Jack be nimble (bounce baby on knees)
Jack be quick.
Jack jumped over the candlestick (lift baby to other knee)
Jack jumped high (lift baby up)
Jack jumped low (bring baby down)
Jack jumped over (lift baby to other knee)
And burnt his toe! (tickle toes)

Bouncing, Bouncing (adapted from NIEHS)
Bouncing, bouncing (bounce baby)
Hop, hop, hop! Hop, hop, hop!
Bouncing, bouncing bouncing,
Bouncing, bouncing,
Now we stop! (stop)
Other actions can include clapping, stomping, flying, etc)

Pop Goes the Weasel
All around the mulberry bush, (bounce baby)
The monkey chased the weasel.
The monkey thought was all in fun.
Pop goes the weasel! (lift baby up)

A penny for a spool of thread,
A penny for a needle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop goes the weasel!

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

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

Literacy tip: Your baby will learn to pay attention to their name very early on. If you use their name right before a new word, your baby is more likely to learn the new word.
