Z718.3 → February's Baby Storytime

Another month, another baby story time session has come and gone. My themes for this month were: Valentine's day (week 1), bedtime (week 2), and pets (week 3).

So, How'd It Go?
Really well, I think! The first week I had my biggest crowd since I began doing baby story time - so that was quite exciting! The second week was a little bit of a smaller group and the babies were pretty antsy by the end - but it was still quite a successful session with grown-ups requesting to take home some of the books I read. The final week had great participation as well - with a lot of the babies very energetic and into the rhymes and movement we were doing.

After the jump is my full outline for the February storytime sessions. Enjoy!

The Lost Shoe
Doodley, doodley doo,
The princess lost her shoe.
Her highness hopped,
The fiddler stopped,
Not knowing what to do!

The Grand Ol' Duke of York
The grand ol' Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
Then marched them down again.
And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down.
And when they were only halfway up,
They were neither up nor down!

Baa-Baa Black Sheep
Baa-baa black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.
One for my master, [clap]
One for my dame, [clap]
And one for the little one that lives down the lane! [three claps]

Hot Cross Buns
Hot cross buns,
Hot cross buns,
One a penny, [clap]
Two a penny, [clap]
Hot cross buns!

There was a farmer had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o,
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, [clap with each letter]
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O!
And Bingo was his name-o!

Action Rhymes
Apple Tree
Way up high in the apple tree, [hold arms over head]
Two little apples, I did see. [ball fists]
So I shook that tree as hard as I could, [shake arms]
And down came the apples, [lower arms]
Mmmmm they were good! [rub belly]

The Wheels on the Bus
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.

These Are Baby's Fingers
These are baby's fingers,
These are baby's toes.
This is baby's belly button,
Round and round it goes!

Dance Your Fingers
Dance your fingers up,
Dance your fingers down.
Dance your fingers side to side,
And dance them all around.
Dance them on your shoulders,
Dance them on your head,
Dance them on your tummy,
And put them all to bed.

Closing Song: Twinkle, twinkle little star
