Virtual Toddler Storytime: Week 16

More toddlers! I like the variety of toddler activities so much, though it will be fun to be back to babies next week. Lot’s of polar bear content this week (not intentionally, but here we are). My library reopened to the public this week for browsing, though I’m writing this before that happens…so hoping all goes well.

Toddler Storytime Intro Song & Rhyme

Early Literacy Tip: Read books with excitement and enthusiasm—this can be much easier with books that encourage silly actions or behaviors. Try being extra silly! Nothing is over-the-top for your child.

Song: Jump with Me by Bobs & Lolo

Fingerplay: Here Is the Beehive

Here is the beehive,
But where are the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
Watch and you’ll see them come out of the hive…
1, 2, 3, 4, 5…They’re alive!

Action Rhyme: The Elevator Song

Oh the city is great and the city is grand
There are lots of tall buildings on a little piece of land
And we live way up on the 57th floor
and this is what we do when we go out the door.

We take the elevator up and the elevator down,
take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up and the elevator down
and we turn around.

Flannel: Polar Bear’s Underwear (Song/Rhyme)

Oh where, oh where did my red underwear go?
Oh where, oh where can they be?
I looked up high, and I looked down low?
Did someone hide them from me?
