Baby Storytime Spotlight: Pigs, Ponies & Puppies

Blogging this about another throwback, fun farm-themed baby storytime from pre-pandemic times!

Sing: Good Morning to You*

Welcome

This morning I had us introduce ourselves, our babies and their ages. We had a few recent birthdays to celebrate, so we sang…

Sing: Happy Birthday to You

Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big (x2)*

Gosh those babies get so big, so fast!

Rhyme: Mix a Pancake (x2)

Must be all those pancakes they have for breakfast!

Sing: I Wake Up My Hands…*

Read: Giant Pop Out Farm

The babies loved the pop-ups!

Tickle: Pitty Patty Polt (x2)

Pitty patty polt,
Shoe the little colt,
Here a nail,
There a nail,
Pitty patty polt.

First we shoed one foot, then the other. And then we went to market!

Bounce: To Market, To Market

To market, to market,
To buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again,
Jiggety-jig.

To market, to market,
To buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again,
Jiggety-jog.

Now that we’re done shopping, let’s take a longer trip!

Bounce: Trot Along to Boston

Trot along to Boston.

Trot along to Dover.

But watch out baby,

Or you might fall OVER!

Trot along to Boston.

Trot along to Lynn.

But watch out baby,

Or you might fall IN!

Trot along to Boston.

Trot along to town.

But watch out baby,

Or you might fall DOWN!

Lit Tip: Getting Ready to Read with Rhymes

Grown-ups, did you know that when you sing nursery rhymes with your baby, you actually help them get ready to read? Science says that children who know 8 nursery rhymes by preschool become stronger readers. When you rhyme with your baby NOW, you help them get ready to read LATER!

Let’s talk about another animal that starts with the Letter P… PUPPIES!

Sing: The Dog Says Woof…

Tune: The Farmer in the Dell

The dog says “woof.”

The dog says “woof.”

Hi-ho, the derry-o,

The dog says “woof!”

Repeat:

bark, yip, howl

Read: Naptime with Theo and Beau by Jessica Shyba

Does it get any cuter than babies and puppies? 😍

Sing: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Speaking of naptime… let’s sing a lullaby!

Rhyme: Tick Tock Cuckoo Clock*

Look at that clock! Where does our time together go?

Sing: Goodbye, Goodbye*

Stay and Play
