Baby Story Time - What Was Read - March 27

The snow is gone and flowers are starting to come up! We met for Baby Story Time today with new friends and old. Here is what we read:
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: On the farm

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 about "5 Clean Pigs."
  • Sang "Old MacDonald Had a Farm."
  • Bounced to "This is the way a baby/farmer/jockey rides"
Early Literacy Tip
  • Animal sounds are a great way to practice phonological awareness. The different, short sounds animals make help baby hear the shorter sounds that are in words. In play, make the animal noises as best as you can.
    Hope to see you next time!
