Lap Sit Week of 3/21

It’s Spring! I’m so excited to look forward to warmer weather (and maybe even opening our story room door to the outside!) 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: Where Is Baby’s Belly Button? by Karen Katz (group reading)

 
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
 
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
 
Mr. Sun
Mr. Sun, Sun Mr. Golden Sun please shine down on me
Mr. Sun, Sun Mr. Golden Sun hiding behind a tree
All these children are asking you
To please come out so they can play with you
Mr. Sun, Sun Mr. Golden Sun please shine down on me
[for sign language version, try this guide]
 
Book #2: Mouse’s First Spring by Lauren Thompson

 
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
 
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  
 
Hippopotamus on a City Bus
A hip, a hip, a hippopotamus
Got on, got on, got on a city bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
You’re squishing us!
A sheep, a sheep, a sheep got on a bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
Move baaaack!
A cow, a cow, a cow got on a bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
Moooove over!
 
What Shall We Do with Lazy Baby?
What shall we do with lazy baby?
What shall we do with lazy baby?
What shall we do with lazy baby?
Early in the morning
Roll her on the bed and tickle all over
Roll her on the bed and tickle all over
Roll her on the bed and tickle all over
Early in the morning
 
Bubbles in the Air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air
There are bubbles in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high
Way up high in the sky
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low
And they tickle on your toes
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
 
Bubbles 
 
Goodbye Song
Storytime is over now, over now, over now
