Rock, Rattle, and Rhyme: Summer 2

Rock, Rattle, and Rhyme is a storytime for 0-36 months. We share stories, rhymes, and songs for 20-25 minutes, and have free play time after.

Sing: Hey, Hey, How Do You Do

Fingerplay: Big Round Sun
     Big round sun in the summer sky (Hold arms in circle overhead)
     Waved to a cloud that was passing by (Wave!)
     The little cloud laughed as it started to rain (Wiggle fingers down for rain)
     And out came the big round sun again. (Hold up arms in circle overhead again)

Sing: Itsy Bitsy Spider (extended version)

     This is big big big (Hold arms out to side, gradually getting bigger)
     This is small small small (Move hands closer together, gradually getting smaller)
     This is short short short (Hold hands parallel to floor with palms facing each other)
     This is tall tall tall (Reach one hand above head)
     This is fast fast fast (Circle fists quickly)
     This is slow slow slow (Circle fists slowly)
     This is yes yes yes (Nod)
     This is no no no (Shake head)

Sing: Tony Chestnut
This is a traditional song, so there are many, many versions of it if you're not familiar. The Learning Station has a popular one, but for younger children, I prefer the slower version on the Toddlers on Parade cd.
