Baby Story Time - What Was Read - January 30

BRR! It has been so cold lately that some of us have been thinking about going to a certain special place: THE BEACH. All of our stories today featured the beach and warm thoughts!

Baby Story Time at Blue Bell is a story time session geared specifically toward babies (ages 6 months to 18 months). We'll read stories, sing songs, chant rhymes, and play with baby! Baby Story Time is also an event for parents and caregivers to learn about early literacy skills to help prepare baby for reading as well as to help foster a love of reading. We meet Thursdays, at 10:15 AM.

Our Theme: Beach!

What We Read

What We Did
  • Sang my favorite opening and closing songs: "If You'd Like to Hear a Story" and "The More We Read Together." 
  • Recited a sea and boat rhyme.
  • Sang "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
  • Recited the bouncing rhyme: Trot Trot to Boston.
Early Literacy Tip
  • Singing is a great way to introduce phonological awareness. Babies need to hear many, many words and also hear how those words are broken down into syllables. Singing is perfect for this and sing as much as you can (or recite).
