Babies in Bloom: Singing

BIBBabies from birth to 18 month (with caring adult) enjoy songs, action rhymes and playtime while building early literacy skills. A great way to get to know other families in your community!

Early Literacy Tip:  Like reading, singing is an activity that requires listening. It’s another opportunity for your baby to begin to understand language and feelings expressed through language and sing-play.*

Housekeeping Welcome to an AACPL Early literacy storytime. My name is Ms. Elaine. Don’t worry about wandering babies, please feel free to step outside if they need a break, and rejoin once they are ready. For now, it doesn’t matter whether your children follow along. If your babies see you play along they’ll want to copy you so please silence any cell phones and try to keep conversation until the social time afterwards.

Dance Your Fingers Up

Dance your fingers up,
Dance your fingers down.
Dance them to the side,
and dance them all around
Dance them on your shoulders;
Dance them on your head.
Dance them on your tummy,
and put them all to bed.
[repeat 1-2x]

 

Skidamarink A Dink A Dink

Skidamarink a dink a dink,
Skidamarink a doo, I love you.
Skidamarink a dink a dink,
Skidamarink a doo, I love you.
I love you in the morning, and in the afternoon.
I love you in the evening
and underneath the moon;

Oh, Skidamarink a dink a dink,
Skidamarink a doo, I love you!

 

Lap (Bouncing) Rhyme:

Father, Mother and Uncle Mike

Father, mother and Uncle Mike,
Went to town on a motor bike,
Father fell off!
Mother fell off!
But Uncle Mike went on and on and on!
[bounce baby on knee]

Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle
Giggle giggle giggle giggle giggle

Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle
Giggle giggle giggle giggle giggle

Baby Goes Bumpy Boo

Tune: Here We Go Loopy Loo

Here we go bumpy boo.
Baby goes bumpy bye.
Baby goes bumpy bee.
On top of my knee.

I bounce you to the left.
I bounce you to the right.
I bounce you up and down.
I bounce you out of sight.

Baby goes bumpy boo.
Baby goes bumpy bye.
Baby goes bumpy bee.
On top of my knee.

I bounce you very fast.
I bounce you very slow.
I bounce you up and down

 

Hello Bubble

Hello Bubble, Hello Bubble,
Come and land, Come and land.
Right in the middle, Right in the middle,
Of my hand, of my hand.
