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

“A streamer curtain is a great way to play with a newborn who isn’t yet consistently grasping. This activity will encourage strengthening and visual motor skills to bat at objects. It also promotes sensory integration of the touch (tactile), visual, pressure & stretch (proprioceptive) and hearing (auditory) senses.”

- www.candokiddo.com

Activity

“Hang streamers from baby’s activity gym for him to touch. You can substitute strips of wrapping tissue paper for crepe streamers and they’ll make the same crinkly sound when touched. He’ll get both touch and sound feedback from his movements and learn from the cause and effect of his actions. If you don’t have an activity gym, you can make a streamer curtain hanging from the edge of a chair.”

Mama’s Little Baby Loves Dancing

(Tune: Shortnin’ Bread)

Mama’s little baby loves dancing, dancing,
Mama’s little baby loves turning round,
Mama’s little baby loves dancing, dancing,
Mama’s little baby loves to boogie down.

Lean to the left,
Lean to the right,
Hug that baby nice and tight.

Mama’s little baby loves dancing, dancing,
Mama’s little baby loves turning round,
Mama’s little baby loves dancing, dancing,
Mama’s little baby loves to boogie down.

The Baby Hokey Pokey

You put your arms up, you put your arms down
You put your arms up and you wave them all around
You tickle tickle tickle and you wiggle wiggle, wiggle
That’s how baby hokey pokey goes

You put your legs up…
You put your whole body up…

Diaper Changing Song: The Diaper on the Bottom

(To the tune of Wheels on the Bus)
The diaper on the bottom comes off, off, off
Off, off, off
Off, off, off
The diaper on the bottom comes off, off, off
Nice and clean
The fresh new diaper goes on, on, on
On, on, on
On, on, on
The fresh new diaper goes on, on, on
Ready to play

Tip

Everybody knows at least one preschooler who can rattle off the names of dozens of dinosaurs. There’s a reason for that! Preschoolers’ brains are wired to learn as much vocabulary as possible. So don’t underestimate them: give them all the words you can! Use the most specific terms possible and they will soak them up like a sponge.

Activity

Read a non-fiction book about dinosaurs with your child, then open up a picture book with dinosaurs and help your child name each kind of dinosaur that appears.

Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays

Five Funny Dinosaurs

Five dancing dinosaurs clogging on the floor.
One clogged away, and then there were four.
Four dancing dinosaurs spinning ‘round a tree.
One spinned away, and then there were three.
Three dancing dinosaurs kicked a doodle-doo.
One kicked away, and then there were two.
Two dancing dinosaurs having lots of fun.
One went away, and then there was one.
One lonely dinosaur afraid to dance a solo.
He ran away… and then there were zero.

– Adapted from Storytimekatie.com

Rhyme: Dance Like a Diplodocus

Dance like diplodocus
Swaying through the trees

Fly like pterodactyl
Soaring in the breeze

Sprint like gallimimus
Striding through the land

Hunt like velociraptor
Circling in a band

Scoff like a stegosaurus
Munching juicy shoots

Chomp like an apatosaurus
Crunching stones and shoots

Roar like a t-rex
Pouncing on its prey

Run like triceratops
Saying “Don’t eat me today !”

We Are the Dinosaurs

We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs
Whaddaya think of that?
We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs, we make the earth flat
We make the earth flat

We stop and eat our food, when we’re in the mood
We stop and eat our food on the ground
We stop and eat our food, when we’re in the mood
We stop and eat our food and then we march around

‘Cause we are the dinosaurs, marching, marching…

We stop and take a rest, over in our nest
We stop and take a rest at the end of the day
We stop and take a rest, over in our nest
We stop and take a rest and then you’ll hear us say

That we are the dinosaurs, marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs
Whaddaya think of that?
We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs, we make the earth flat
We make the earth flat

And then we roar!
‘Cause we are the dinosaurs!
(Roar!)

He’s huge. (echo)
He’s strong. (echo)
He’s huge, he’s strong.
Won’t be hungry very long!
