Welcome Songs

Here We Are Together

Here we are together, together, together! Oh, here we are together in our library. There’s (sing names)… Here we are together in our library!

Hello Everybody

Hello everybody let’s clap our hands*, clap our hands, clap our hands. Hello everybody let’s clap our hands today! *pat our head, stretch up high, wiggle our fingers, tickle our knees, kick our feet, bounce up high!

S, T, R, W, P

(Sing while pointing to each finger on your child’s hand.) Sing, talk, read, write, play! Sing, talk, read write, play! Sing, talk, read, write, play! Sing, talk, read, write, play each day!

Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play

Tip

Some nursery songs and rhymes can help children develop narrative skills. Those skills will help them understand what they read. Giving children aids, like flannel board pieces or toys, helps them remember the sequence of a story makes it easier to retell the story in the correct order.

- Lambert

Activity

As you recite or sing, “Five Little Pandas Eating Bamboo,” or another nursery rhyme, put the corresponding picture on the board. Then help your child to repeat the same action.

Books Presented

I am a Panda by Cottage Door Press

Let’s play with our panda friend! This story features a fun finger puppet toy built into the board book, encouraging interactive play, hand-eye coordination, and language development in your little one.

Please, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony

Patiently and politely, Mr. Panda asks the animals he comes across if they would like a doughnut. A penguin, a skunk, and a whale all say yes, but they do not remember to say “please” and “thank you.” Is anyone worthy of Mr. Panda’s doughnuts?

Thank You, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony

Mr. Panda has presents for all his animal friends, but many of the gifts are not quite right–but as little Lemur knows, it is the thought that counts.

That's Not My Panda... by Fiona Watt

This delightful series of board books is aimed at very young children. The bright pictures with their patches of different textures, are designed to develop sensory awareness and language awareness. Babies and toddlers will love turning the pages and touching the feely patches.

Flannel Board Song: Five Little Pandas

Five little pandas eating bamboo,
They chomp, chomp, chomped and they chew, chew, chewed;
One little panda crawled away,
But four furry pandas decided to stay!

Four little pandas eating bamboo,
They chomp, chomp, chomped and they chew, chew, chewed;
One little panda ran away,
But three furry pandas decided to stay!

Three little pandas eating bamboo
They chomp, chomp, chomped and they chew, chew, chewed;
One little panda rolled away,
But two furry pandas decided to stay!

Two little pandas eating bamboo,
They chomp, chomp, chomped and they chew, chew, chewed;
One little panda skipped away
But one furry panda decided to stay!

One little panda eating bamboo,
He chomp, chomp, chomped and he chew, chew, chewed;
This little panda decided to play,
So he ran to join the others that day!
