Lap Sit Week of 10/5

And just like that, the first week of October story times are over! Here’s what happened at story time this week-

 

If You’re Ready For a Story (to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It)
Clap your hands, stomp your feet, wave hello
Big Big Big
This is big big big- this is small small small
This is short short short- this is tall tall tall
This is fast fast fast- this is slow slow slow
This is yes yes yes- this is no no no
ABCs
 
Open/Shut Them
Open/shut them, open/shut them- give a little clap clap clap
Open/shut them, open/shut them- put them in your lap lap lap
Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them
Right up to your chinny chin chin
Open wide your little mouth- but do not let them in!
Book #1: I Kissed the Baby! by Mary Murphy
 
Bumping Up and Down
(Bounce baby on your lap as you go)
Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
(big hug) Won’t you be my darling?
(tilting to the sides) One wheel’s off and the axle’s broken
One wheel’s off and the axle’s broken
One wheel’s off and the axle’s broken
(big hug) Won’t you be my darling?
 
Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
(point to body parts as you go)
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes- knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes- knees and toes
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes- knees and toes
 
I Wake Up My Hands
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap
clap, clap, clap
clap, clap, clap
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap
And I wiggle my waggles away!
I wake up my toes with a tap, tap, tap
tap, tap, tap
tap, tap, tap
I wake up my toes with a tap, tap, tap
And I wiggle my waggles away!
I wake up my hips with a shake, shake, shake
shake, shake, shake
shake, shake, shake
I wake up my hips with a shake, shake, shake
And I wiggle my waggles away!
 
Book #2: Baby Loves Fall! by Karen Katz
 
Lift One Foot
Lift one foot and then the other,
Lift one foot and then the other,
Lift one foot and then the other,
Lift them both together!
Lift one arm and then the other,
Lift one arm and then the other,
Lift one arm and then the other,
Lift them both together!
 
Roly Poly
(roll hands as you go)
Roly poly, roly poly
Fast fast fast, fast fast fast
Roly roly poly, roly roly poly
Slow slow slow, slow slow slow
Roly poly, roly poly
up up up, up up up
Roly roly poly, roly roly poly
down down down, down down down
 
Popcorn Kernels
(we used scarves to act out the motions at story time, but feel free to use a shirt, small towel, or whatever else you have on hand)
Popcorn kernels, popcorn kernels
In the pot, in the pot
Shake them shake them shake them, shake them shake them shake them
Til they pop! Til they pop!
 
One Bright Scarf
One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow
wiggle it high and wiggle it low
shake it fast and shake it slow
(hide it behind your back) where did it go?
 
Book #3: Five Little Monkeys by Eileen Christelow
Bubbles
 
Goodbye Song
Story time is over now, over now, over now
Story time is over now- see you next time!

One thought on “Lap Sit Week of 10/5

  1. I have attended a few of the storytimes and love it for my little girl. One suggestion that I have seen done at other storytimes is the leader passes out a copy of each book for the parents to hold and turn pages as the story is being read. my baby is only 8 months and that helps keep her attention longer.other wise she is looking around at what the other kids are doing. Just a thought!
