Wonderful Ones: Clap, Pat, Stretch, Repeat!

Babies love to move their bodies by dancing, hopping, bopping and being silly.  These activities also help your baby learn motor skills, learn communication skills, and helps build self-confidence as he or she learns to do new motions.  Clap along or pat your hands on your knees to rhymes and songs you sing together, stretch your arms out wide or small to indicate sizes,  and use your facial expressions to share moods and thoughts.   Bending, stretching, and bouncing to rhythms also allows babies to not only hear, but feel the motion of syllables and sounds which allows for learning new words and speech.

Clap Your Hands Rhyme
Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap your hands with me.
Clap them fast,
Clap them slow,
Clap your hands with me.

Pat, pat, pat your knees,
Pat your knees with me.
Pat them fast,
Pat them slow,
Pat your hands with me.

Stretch, stretch, stretch your arms,
Stretch your arms with me.
Stretch them fast,
Stretch them slow,
Stretch your arms with me. 

Bright Sun Song
Bright sun shining down,
Shining on the ground.
What a lovely face you have,
Yellow, big, and round!


Me, Me, Me Rhyme
Me, me, me
Look at me
And you will see
Ten fingers, ten toes
Two arms, two legs
Two eyes, two ears
One head, one nose
All on me.

Me, me, me
Look at me
And you will see
Ten fingers, ten toes
Two arms, two legs
Two eyes, two ears
One head, one nose
All on me.

Story Mix for Three to Six: ZANY ZOO ANIMALS: Mischievous Monkeys

We are continuing our theme of ZANY ZOO ANIMALS and this week is all about those silly and mischievous monkeys who swing from the trees!  We've also added a new animal onto our "All Through the Zoo" song!

Children will learn important concepts through repetition and singing, and making animal motions and movements. Using arms and legs to make the motions of a swinging monkey or one eating a banana will keep children active and help them learn about animal movements and sounds.

Reading together is also an essential early literacy skill in order for children to acquire reading success when they start school.  Shared reading helps children learn the concepts of a book, and also develop a young appreciation for learning and reading. Take a look through our selection of zoo themed books!

All Through the Zoo Song (Sung to the tune of Wheels on the Bus)
The tiger in the grass says roar, roar, roar
Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar, roar
The tiger in the grass says roar, roar, roar
All through the zoo.

The Parrot in the leaves goes squawk, squawk, squawk
Squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk
The Parrot in the leaves goes squawk, squawk, squawk
All through the zoo.

The bear in the grass says growl, growl, growl
growl, growl, growl, growl, growl, growl
The bear in the grass says growl, growl, growl
All through the zoo.

The giraffe by the tree, munches the leaves,
munches the leaves, munches the leaves
The giraffe by the tree, munches the leaves,
All through the zoo.

The elephant by the rock goes stomp, stomp, stomp
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp
The elephant by the rock goes stomp, stomp, stomp
All through the zoo.

The monkey in the tree goes eek, eek, eek
eek, eek, eek, eek, eek, eek,
The monkey in the tree goes eek, eek, eek
All through the zoo.


Five Little Bananas Counting Song
Five little bananas
Swinging in a tree
If a monkey picks one
And carries it away
How many bananas
Will be left to sway?
 
Four little bananas
Swinging in a tree
If a monkey picks one
And carries it away
How many bananas
Will be left to sway?

Three little bananas
Swinging in a tree
If a monkey picks one
And carries it away
How many bananas
Will be left to sway?
 
Two little bananas
Swinging in a tree
If a monkey picks one
And carries it away
How many bananas
Will be left to sway?

One little banana
Swinging in a tree
If a monkey picks one
And carries it away
How many bananas
Will be left to sway?

I'm a Little Monkey Song (Sung to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot)
I’m a little monkey in the tree
Swinging by my tail so merrily
I can leap and fly from tree to tree
I have lots of fun you see
I’m a little monkey, watch me play
Munching on bananas every day
Lots of monkey friends to play with me
We have fun up in the tree.

1, 2, 3 Go! Here Comes the Sun!

We are continuing to explore weather and spring seasonal elements at the 1, 2, 3 Go!  class this week.  Take some some this week to engage your child in talking about the spring weather and what happens after it rains...the sun comes out!  Ask questions such as, "what does the sun do?", or "what color is the sun?" and then, "what other objects are yellow?". Developing a conversation with your child is important as he or she learns to communicate ideas and information, which leads to comprehension.  By learning how to communicate and comprehend, children are learning essential early literacy and reading skills.

Yellow Song (sung to the tune of 'If You're Happy and You Know It')
Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow.
Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow.
Like the bright and early sun when the day has just begun
Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow.
Ducklings and bananas are YELLOW.
Lemons and flowers are YELLOW.
Like a smiley face is yellow he is such a happy fellow
Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow.

Mister Sun Song
Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Hiding behind a tree...

These little children
Are asking you
To please come out
So we can play with you

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on...
Please shine down on...
Please shine down on me!

Wonderful Ones: Fun Farm Animals

Babies love animals!  We are sharing animal themed songs, rhymes and stories we enjoyed at this week's class.  Singing and rhyming not only allows baby to hear and learn new words, it also assists in developing listening skills. By listening to the different sounds animals make, babies will be able to decipher syllables in spoken language.  Also, learning to identify different animals by name and sound increase baby's vocabulary!

What the Animals Say Rhyme
Little pup, little pup,
What do you say?
“Woof, woof, woof!
Let’s go and play.”

Kitty cat, kitty cat,
How about you?
“Meow, meow, meow!
And I purr too.”

Pretty bird, pretty bird,
Have you a song?
“Tweet, tweet, tweet!
The whole day long.”


Eight Baby Pigs Rhyme
Two little pigs lived in a pen, (use your thumbs to represent the pigs)
Each had four babies and that made ten. (use your fingers to represent the baby pigs)
These four babies were black and white,
These four babies were black as night.
All eight babies loved to play,
And they rolled and they rolled in the mud all day.

The Animals on the Farm (sung to tune of 'The Wheels on the Bus')
The cows on the farm go moo, moo, moo,
Moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo,
The cows on the farm go moo, moo, moo,
All day long.

The horses on the farm go neigh, neigh, neigh,
Neigh, neigh, neigh, neigh, neigh, neigh,
The horses on the farm go neigh, neigh, neigh,
All day long.

The pigs on the farm go oink, oink, oink,
Oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink,
The pigs on the farm go oink, oink, oink,
All day long.

The sheep on the farm go baa, baa, baa
Baa, baa, baa, baa, baa, baa,
The sheep on the farm go baa, baa, baa
All day long. 

(Repeat using other farm animals such as chickens, goats, or ducks)

We are continuing our theme of ZANY ZOO ANIMALS and this week is all about tall giraffes with long necks!  We've also added a new animal onto our "All Through the Zoo" song!

Did You Ever See an Elephant? (Sung to the tune of 'Did You Ever See a Lassie?')
Did you ever see an elephant,
an elephant, an elephant?
Did you ever see an elephant
spray water with her trunk?
Spray water all over,
Spray water all over,
Did you ever see an elephant
Spray water with her trunk?

Did you ever see an elephant,
an elephant, an elephant?
Did you ever see an elephant

Wonderful Ones: It's Playtime!

Playtime is a great way to introduce early literacy skills to your child!   Using these rhymes, songs and stories, you are encouraging playing while teaching babies about hands, feet, and actions of each body part.  Through such playtime and rhythmic language, children learn to think symbolically.  They also learn and practice essential oral language skills by putting thoughts into words and making connections between sounds, letters and objects.   

Put Your Finger On... (sung to the tune of 'If You’re Happy And You Know It')
Put your finger on your toes, on your toes,
Put your finger on your toes, on your toes.
Put your finger on your toes,
Put your finger on your toes,
Put your finger on your toes, on your toes.
 
Put your finger on your tummy, on your tummy,
Put your finger on your tummy, on your tummy.
Put your finger on your tummy,
Put your finger on your tummy,
Put your finger on your tummy, on your tummy.

Put your finger on your head, on your head,
Put your finger on your head, on your head.
Put your finger on your head,
Put your finger on your head,
Put your finger on your head, on your head.

One, Two, Three Rhyme
One, two, three,
Count with me.
It’s as easy as can be –
Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.
Now let’s start it once again.

Teddy Bear Can Rhyme (sung to the tune of 'Muffin Man')
Teddy bear can turn around,
Turn around, turn around.
Teddy bear can turn around,
You can do it too!

Teddy bear can clap his hands,
Clap his hands.  Clap his hands. 
Teddy bear can clap his hands,
You can do it too!

Teddy bear can jump up and down,
Jump up and down, jump up and down. 
Teddy bear can jump up and down,
You can do it too!

1, 2, 3 Go! April Showers Bring May Flowers

At the 1, 2, 3 Go!  class this week, we had fun with all kinds of songs and games to welcome in the spring season! Below are two songs we sang and several books we shared.   These introduce concepts such as weather and seasons  through repetition and rhythmic language.  The actions and movements used help children develop motorskills as they clap and jump, as well as, make connections with concepts.  Take some time this week to engage your child in conversation about what they sing such as, 'what do the flowers do?' or 'what flutters?' to keep the fun moving!  Share one of our books below together, which carry through the concepts by way of creepy, crawly spring bugs!

The Rain in the Spring Song (Sung to the tune of Wheels on the Bus)
The rain in the spring goes drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip.
The rain in the spring goes drip drip drip, all day long!

The flowers in the spring all grow grow grow, grow, grow, grow.
The flowers in the spring all grow, grow, grow, all day long!

The wind in the spring goes swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish.
The wind in the spring goes swish, swish, swish, all day long! 

The butterfly in the spring goes flutter, flutter, flutter, flutter, flutter, flutter.
The butterfly in the spring goes flutter, flutter, flutter, all day long!



Everyone loved the songs we sang at the 1, 2, 3 Go class, including "Walter the Waltzing Worm by Hap Palmer.  This music CD is available to check out at the library so you can sing the whole song.   For additional resources from Hap Palmer, visit his website.  To help you with the song, you may want to create your own Walter the Waltzing Worm by using a piece of yarn or string.

Walter the Waltzing Worm
Words and Music: Hap Palmer

Select Lyrics: 
Chorus:
Please don't scream when I show you my friend
Walter the waltzing worm
In three-quarter time he slithers and slimes
Wiggles and squiggles and squirms

Verses:
He crawls up my leg with a slippy slip slide
He slides over my shoulder and down to my side

In front of my tummy his head and tail meet
Then he falls to the floor and lands by my feet

Between my ankles he slides as I stand
Then he rolls up my leg and slips through my hands

He stretches his body across my chest
Then he curls up on my back to take a short rest

We shared these books and stories at our 1, 2, 3, Go! class this week:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle / La oruga muy hambrienta
Follows the progress of a hungry little caterpillar as he eats his way through a varied and very large quantity of food until, full at last, he forms a cocoon around himself and goes to sleep. / Una oruga muy hambrienta come y come y come una gran variedad y gran cantidad de comida hasta que, por fin, construye un capullo y se duerme.

Story Mix for Three to Six: ZANY ZOO ANIMALS: Graceful Giraffes

We are continuing our theme of ZANY ZOO ANIMALS and this week is all about tall giraffes with long necks!  We've also added a new animal onto our "All Through the Zoo" song!

Children will learn important concepts through repetition and singing, and making animal motions and movements. Using arms and legs to make the motions of a tall-necked giraffe will keep children active and help them learn about animal movements and sounds. The counting rhyme game is great for helping children learn numbers and sequence. 

All Through the Zoo Song (Sung to the tune of Wheels on the Bus)
The tiger in the grass says roar, roar, roar
Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar, roar
The tiger in the grass says roar, roar, roar
All through the zoo.

Squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk
The Parrot in the leaves goes squawk, squawk, squawk

The giraffe by the tree, munches the leaves,

All through the zoo.


Five Tall Giraffes Rhyme
Five tall giraffes walk and sway
In the jungle not far away.
The 1st one said, “Come on, let’s run!”
The 2nd one said, “Oh, that’s no fun.”
The 3rd one said, “I’ll find a tree.”
The 4th one said, “Some leaves for me.”
The 5th one said, “We can’t stay.”
So the 5 tall giraffes ran away.

Tippy tippy tiptoe, quiet as a mouse.

Wonderful Ones: Little Peter Rabbit

This week at Wonderful Ones we are continuing our celebration of the spring season with rhymes and books about bunnies, ducks, and also several Easter-themed selections!  Singing and rhyming not only allows baby to hear and learn new words, it also assists in developing listening skills. By listening to the different sounds animals make, babies will be able to decipher syllables in spoken language.  Repetition helps reinforce important early literacy concepts such as counting and colors. Happy Easter!

Ten Little Bunnies Rhyme

Four little, five little, six little bunnies,
Seven little, eight little, nine little bunnies,
Ten little bunnies hop around.
