Baby Bloomers- Farm Animals

These week's Baby Bloomers was a bit smaller- a couple of our babies took their morning nap during our regular story time.  They still came to the library later on, so I had my chance to play with them.  I found great pop-up books featuring farm animals. We read

Farm Animals by Lucy Cousins
Who Am I? Farm Animals
Pop-up Peekaboo! Farm


Opening Song-The More We Get Together

We listened to
Baby Grows from Toddlers on Parade
Baby Hokey Pokey from Baby Face
Skinnamarink from Stinky Cake

Up & Down Rhyme
Up, up in the sky like this, (gently lift baby in the air)
Down, down for a great big kiss( slowly bring baby down and kiss)
Up like this (lift up)
Down for a kiss (lower down)
You’re my special baby! (hug and cuddle baby)

Nursery Rhyme: Chook, Chook, Chook

Two Little Eyes to Look Around
Two little eyes to look around
Two little ears to hear a sound
One little nose to smell what’s sweet
One little mouth that likes to eat!

Animals on the Farm -  use puppets
Pigs that oink,
And cows that moo,
Horses, sheep, and duckies, too.
Kittens, dogs, and fish that swim,
Chickens, roosters, gather in.
All of these friends you will see
If you come to the farm with me!
