Time for Two’s Storytime-1,2,3 Count With Me-9/24/2015

Hello everyone!Today your child will be learning about numbers. You can introduce the idea of numbers by counting in small sets. Also singing songs and rhymes that include counting.

~Opening song: Hello! from CD Early Childhood Classics by Hap Palmer

Hello, Hello, Hello and how are you?
I’m fine. I’m fine,
And I hope that you are too.

~Opening Fingerplay: Open, Shut Them. From CD Early Childhood Classics by Hap Palmer

Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap
Apart together, apart together
Give a little clap
Apart together, apart together
Put them in your lap

I raise my hands oh so high
I bring them down and now they’re low
I raise my hands oh so high
I bring them down and now they’re low
My hands are high, my hands are low
My hands are high, my hands are low

My hand is a bird flying high
The bird flies down and now it’s low
The bird flies up and now it’s high
The bird flies down and now it’s low
My hands are high, my hands are low
My hands are high, my hands are low

Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap
Back and forward, back and forward
Give a little clap
Back and forward, back and forward
Put them in your lap

(We will repeat them every week, toddlers love repetition because it helps them to learn and because it’s familiar and comforting).

One jellyfish…
Two jellyfish…
Three jellyfish…

Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
