Lap Sit Week of 1/11

Storytime is back! No matter how busy we are, it always feels so quiet without storytime. I was so happy to see all the returning families and new faces this week. We had a big group on Monday morning and smaller groups for the other sessions so a couple things got switched around, but here’s what we were up to this week:
If You’re Ready For a Story
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you’re ready for a story wave hello
If you’re ready for a story wave hello
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story 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: Do Cows Meow? by Salina Yoon

 

 
Itsy Bitsy Spider
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again
 
Slowly, Slowly
Slowly, slowly very slowly creeps the garden snail
Slowly, slowly very slowly up the garden rail
Quickly, quickly very quickly runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly very quickly to his little house
 
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

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
The kids on the bus go up and down, up and down, up and down
The kids on the bus go up and down, all through the town
The grownups on the bus go shh shh shh, shh shh shh, shh shh shh
The grownups on the bus go shh shh shh, all through the town
 
Roly Poly
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
