Baby Story Time - What Was Read - March 20

Finally! It is the first day of Spring! During Baby Story Time, we read stories about Spring and only thought about warm weather, the flowers, rain, and more.

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.

Theme: Spring!

What Was 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 rhyme that starts with "I saw a little bird, hop, hop, hop."
  • Recited a rhyme about "Two Little Black Birds" named Jack & Jill.
  • Recited a rhyme about going "Up-up-up" and "Down-Down-Down."
 Early Literacy Tip
  • Ah! Spring! The weather is changing and we'll be outside a lot soon! Spring is a great time to introduce more background knowledge, especially through play! Play in the dirt as you garden. Have baby check out the tools you use (supervise them, of course). The more they learn, the more they know.
