Lap Sit Week of 2/8

This was a great week of milestones at lap sit– there was a first time clapper, a baby who did all the motions to “Big Big Big” for the first time, and lots of other exciting developments! Here’s what we were up to:
 
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!

Bumping Up and Down
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
Won’t you be my darling?
One wheel’s off and the axel’s broken
One wheel’s off and the axel’s broken
One wheel’s off and the axel’s broken
Won’t you be my darling?
 
Roly Poly
Roly poly, roly poly

Roly roly poly, roly roly poly
Down down down, down down down
Roly poly, roly poly

Roly roly poly, roly roly poly

Book #2: Whose Spots? by Fiona Munro

 
Baby Hokey Pokey
You put your hands in, you put your hands out
You put your hands in, and shake them all about
You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about
You put your feet in, you put your feet out
You put your feet in, and shake them all about
You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about
You put your whole self in, you put your whole self out
You put your whole self in, and shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about
 
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 Smooth Road
A smooth road, a smooth road, a smooth road, a smooth road
A bumpy road, a bumpy road, a bumpy road, a bumpy road
A rough road, a rough road, a rough road, a rough road…
a hole!
 
Hands Are Clapping
Hands are clapping, clap clap clap
Hands are clapping, clap clap clap
Hands are clapping, clap clap clap
Clap your hands my darling
Toes are tapping, tap tap tap
Toes are tapping, tap tap tap
Toes are tapping, tap tap tap
Tap your toes my darling
