Lap Sit Week of 10/26

And just like that, October story times are over! 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!

Do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about!
