Baby Story Time - What Was Read - April 3

Despite the lovely weather we had a great crowd for Baby Story Time today! It was also a fun session today because we had lots and lots of bounce rhymes! Read on to see what we did today.

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: Bunny rabbits!

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/sang: "I wish I were a bunny."
  • Sang: "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes."
  • Recited the rhyme: "Little Rabbit."
  • Recited the rhyme: "Me and my horse."
Early Literacy Tip
  • Something I haven't talked a lot about here is Print Awareness. Aside from helping you, the rhyme cards I use every time show baby that there is something on that card that you're reading. Reading is how you can expose baby to print from pointing to parts of the book to point out the words on the page.
