Lapsit-Shapes-10/8/2015

Hello everyone! Today we will be reading books about shapes. You can introduce shapes in a fun way.

~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: Baby’s Game

Touch your ears, pat your nose,
Tickle baby’s little toes.
Hide your eyes, where are you?
Baby’s playing Peek-A-Boo!

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

~Action Rhyme: We Clap and Say Hello

We clap and say hello, we clap and say hello.

With our friends at storytime, we clap and say hello.

Flying: (Action Song) Babies should be lying on their backs for this activity. Use scarves and move them in the air above the babies.

Flying through the air, Oh what a sight.

The Butterfly’s wings have taken flight.

They fly up high, they fly up down low, (tickle child’s nose)

They fly around and around, before they go! (Tickle baby’s tummy)

Streching: (Action Rhyme)

When I stretch up, I feel so tall.

When I bend down, I feel so small.

Taller, taller, taller, taller.

Smaller, Smaller, Smaller, Smaller,

Into a tiny ball.

Where is…? (Fingerplay)

Where is triangle? Where is triangle?

Here I am. Here I am.

How are you today, sir? Very well, I thank you.

Run away. Run away.

Now bounce that baby right up to the top! (lift baby up)

-Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (Fingerplay)

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.
