Baby Storytime: Bunnies

Opening Song

 

Themes

Letter: B

Number: 3

Color: Blue

Shape: Oval

Opposite: Big/Little

ASL sign: Bunny (Hold flat “B” hands on the upper sides of your head as if they were bunny ears with palms facing backward. Fold your “ears” back twice.)

 

Early Literacy Tip

Ask your baby or toddler questions as you read books. Even if they does not have the words to answer, they learn that questions are invitations for them to respond.

 

Transition Song: Open, Shut Them

Open, shut them

Open, shut them

Give a little clap, clap, clap

Open, shut them

Open, shut them

Put them in your lap, lap, lap

Creep them, crawl them

Creep them, crawl them

Right up to your chin, chin, chin

Open wide your little mouth but

Do not let them in!

Scarf Song/Rhyme: Little Rabbit

(Adult caregivers should bounce babies in their laps when rhyme says “hop”, tickle baby’s ears, nose, and down to baby’s toes with the scarf)

I saw a little rabbit go hop, hop, hop

I told that little rabbit to stop, stop, stop

He wiggled his ears and crinkled his nose

And wiggled, wiggled, wiggled right down to his toes

Notes

This is one of the storytimes I wrote and presented before I started this blog, so I didn’t write down where I got some of the songs from or notes on how the program went. If anyone knows where the songs are from, I’d be happy to update the post with that information.
