Baby Storytime

New to Baby Storytime? Read this!

Today was a fun story time-- some new rhymes that got added to the spreadsheet while I was gone and recently discovered by me! Plus, lots of me messing up (often happens with new rhymes). But even more so-- I messed up some of the rhymes (totally normal) plus I got so excited about doing the new Charlie Chaplin rhyme that I totally forgot to read my first book! Usually, the first book is read after "Hickory Dickory Dock" and then right before "Patty Cake" we sing the Raffi song and read the second book. Today, right before "This is the Way the Ladies Ride" we read a book, shook our sillies, read another book.

Except I started reading on page 2.

STORYTIME WIN! Ah well, you just laugh, apologize, and start over and no one really minds.

Spot Says Goodnight has flaps to lift! Babies love lifting flaps. It's playing peek-a-boo with a book!

Basher: Go! Go! Bobo Colors is another fun concept book from Basher.

Welcome Song:

Where is baby? Where is baby?
There (s)he is! There (s)he is!

Peek-a-boo! Peek-a-boo!

Substitute the child’s name for “baby”

Mother Goose Rhymes:

Tune: What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor
What shall we do with a tiny baby?
What shall we do with a tiny baby?
What shall we do with a tiny baby,
Early in the morning.

Swing him around and tickle him all over.
Swing him around and tickle him all over.
Swing him around and tickle him all over,
Early in the morning.

Heave ho! And up she rises,
Heave ho! And up she rises,
Heave ho! And up she rises,
Early in the morning.

This is big big big (Hold arms out to side)
This is small small small (Cup hands together)
This is short short short (Hold hands with palms facing each other)
This is tall tall tall (Reach one hand above head)
This is fast fast fast (Circle fists quickly)
This is slow slow slow (Circle fists slowly)
This is yes yes yes (Nod)
This is no no no (Shake head)

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater
Had a wife and couldn’t keeper
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack jump over
The candlestick.

Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold
Pease porridge in the pot, 9 days old
Some like it hot, some like it cold
Some like it in the pot, 9 days old

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one, the mouse ran down
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck two, the mouse said “woo”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck three, the mouse said “wee”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck four, the mouse said “no more”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Bounces and Action Rhymes:

Charlie Chaplin went to France (bouncing baby on lap)
To teach the ladies how to dance!
First he did the rumba (move baby's knees back and forth)
Then he did the kicks (move baby's legs in kicking motion)
Then he did the samba (move baby's legs up and down together)
And then he did the splits! (gently move baby's legs apart and together again)

Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
And mouth and ears and eyes and nose
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes

If baby is old enough, have him or her point to each body part. If baby is still too young, touch each body part while singing.

This is the way the ladies ride:
Walk walk walk
This is the way the gentlemen ride:
Trot trot trot
This is the way the children ride:
BOOM BOOM BOOM

Bounce the baby on your knee or foot. When the ladies ride, bounce very softly, for the gentlemen, bounce a little more, and then bounce very vigorously when the children ride!

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 throw it in the oven for baby and me!

Clap baby’s hands for the first three lines. When rolling the cake, roll your hands, and then pat your knees when patting the cake. Draw a B on baby’s hand when marking the cake and mime throwing it in the oven at the end.

Closing Song:

(to the tune of Shortnin’ Bread)

Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
I’m so glad every little cell
In my body is happy and well
I’m so glad every little cell
In my body is happy and well
Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
