Opening Rhyme
(to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We’re all here today. We’re all here today.
Let’s clap our hands and sing together.
Hip, hip, hooray!
Source: (To be honest, my library was using this before I started so I’m not sure where the previous librarian found it, but it looks like a modified version of Jean Warren’s Preschool Express song here.)

Hello, Hands. Good-bye, Hands.
Hello, hands. (Wave hands in front of face.)
Good-bye, hands. (Hide hands behind back.)
Hello, hands. Good-bye, hands.
My hands were feeling shy today. (Keep hands hidden.)
But now they’re feeling better! (Bring hands out, wave frantically, and smile HUGE.)
Repeat with feet, face, etc.

Book: Who Ate all the Cookie Dough? by Karen Beaumont

Five Little Kangaroos
Five little kangaroos jumping by a door
One jumped away and
Then there were four
Four little kangaroos jumping by a tree
One jumped away and
Then there were three.
Three little kangaroos looking at you
One jumped away and
Then there were two.
Two little kangaroo jumping in the sun
One jumped away and then there was one.
One little kangaroo jumping all alone
That one jumped away and
Then there was none.

Kangaroo, Kangaroo
Kangaroo, kangaroo,
sleeping on the couch,
What is hiding inside your pouch?
Open up your pocket, peek inside.
Why, it’s your baby, trying to hide.
Kangaroo, kangaroo,
Open up your pocket.
Out comes your joey…time to rock it.

Book – It Looked like Spilt Milk

Patty Cake
Patty-cake, patty-cake, baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Roll it and pat it and mark it with a “B”
And put it in the oven for baby and me!

This is Yes, Yes, Yes
This is big, big, big
This is small, small, small
This is short, short, short
This is tall, tall, tall
This fast, fast, fast
This is slow, slow, slow
This is yes, yes, yes
This is no, no, no

Bubbles – best bubble machine ever! (IMHO, of course)

Rainbows in my Bubbles
(Tune of She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain)
I’ve got rainbows in my bubbles, yes, I do
I’ve got rainbows in my bubbles, yes, I do
When I look up towards the sun,
They’ve got rainbows every one.
I’ve got rainbows in my bubbles, yes, I do.

Good-bye Song
(Tune of Ten Little Indians)
Wave with one hand, then with the other
Wave with one hand, then with the other
Wave with one hand, then with the other
Wave with both feet now
Repeat with other body parts

Play Time!

Early literacy tip:  Make cookies with your child! Showing a child how to follow a recipe not only introduces print in a new way, but also develops early math skills through measuring. It also teaches the ability to follow directions. For babies, set out a small tub filled with uncooked beans or rice. Give them a scoop, and let them play.
