Welcome Song:

Where is baby? Where is baby?
There (s)he is! There (s)he is!
I’m so glad to see you, I’m so glad to see you
Peek-a-boo! Peek-a-boo!

Substitute the child’s name for “baby”

Mother Goose Rhymes:

Where oh where are baby’s fingers? (touch fingers)
Where oh where are baby’s toes? (touch toes)
Where is baby’s belly button? (trace on baby’s tummy)
Round and round it goes.
Where oh where are baby’s ears? (touch ears)
Where oh where is baby’s nose? (touch toes)
Where is baby’s belly button? (trace on baby’s tummy)
Round and round it goes.

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away

La fourmi m’a piqué la main
La coquine, La coquine
La fourmi m’a piqué la main
La coquine elle avait faim, Aie !

La fourmi m’a pique le nez…
La fourmi m’a pique le pied…

Translation: The ant bit my hand/The rascal, the rascal/The ant bit my hand/The scamp was hungry. OW! The ant bit my nose…/The ant bit my foot… tickle each body part as it is mentioned. Listen to this song here: http://www.garderiedelavaux.org/chansons.html

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:

Airplanes fly in the sky, zoom zoom!  (zoom hand around)
Airplanes fly in the sky, zoom zoom!  (zoom hand around)
Round and round the airplanes go  (arm circles around)
Flying high, flying low  (arm circles up high, then down low)
Shhh... I think I hear one  (finger to lips, then cup ear)
ZOOM! (zoom arm from one side to the other)

Clap clap clap your hands, clap them now with me.
Clap your hands, let me see,
Clap them now with me.

(Other verses)
Tap tap tap your knees…
Shake shake shake your feet
Touch touch touch your shoulders…

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
