Lap Sit Week of 10/12

This was such a nice week at story time! It makes me so happy to families coming back every week and having new families drop in. Here’s what we were up to 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!

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.
 
Wheels on the Bus
Wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round, round and round
Wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town.
The horn on the bus goes beep beep beep
beep beep beep, beep beep beep
The horn on the bus goes beep beep beep
All through the town.
The grown ups on the bus go shh shh shh
shh shh shh, shh shh shh
The grown ups on the bus go shh shh shh
All through the town.
 
Book #2: Hide and Seek Harry Around the House by Kenny Harrison
A Bouncing We Will Go
A bouncing we will go, a bouncing we will go
Hi-ho the derry-o a bouncing we will go.
A rocking we will go, a rocking we will go
Hi-ho the derry-o a rocking we will go.
A tickling we will go, a tickling we will go
hi-ho the derry-o a tickling we will go.
 
Love Somebody Yes I Do
(Feel free to bounce, rock, or move however you’d like)
Love somebody yes I do
Love somebody yes I do
Love somebody yes I do
But I won’t tell who.
 
Two Little Blackbirds
(use index finger motions along with song)
Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill
One named Jack and one named Jill
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill.
Two little blackbirds flying in the sky
One named low and one named high
Fly away low, fly away high
Come back low, come back high.
(This video from Jbrary shows a lot of different verses you can do with this song- use any opposites you’d like!)

Goodbye Song
Story time is over now, over now, over now
Story time is over now- see you next time!
