I’ve recorded another video with one of my favourite rhymes to share in my babytime classes -(the video is a little shaky due to my fabulous 11 year old film director) Below is the video for “Some Love Coffee, Some Love Tea”. This is a rhyme that parents and caregivers really enjoy sharing with their little ones. It’s simple, easy to remember and has a nice rhythm.
I’d really love your feedback- are the video’s helpful? Would you like to see more video’s on this site? Please leave comments below.
Once a month I visit the daycares in the area for storytime. It’s a great way to meet and visit with the children I wouldn’t normally see here in a regular program. I look really forward to these visits.
Todays favourite story was:
Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett
A cheeky little girl and her toy monkey swing irresistibly through the pages of this gorgeous playful book. Young children will love guessing what animal they are pretending to be, before shouting out the answers as the pages are turned to reveal the real creatures. Soon everyone will be waddling like a penguin, jumping like a kangaroo and hanging upside down like a bat!
I use this one a little differently and tell it like a group chant where the children repeat after each verse. I also have them act out the animals as they appear on the pages. Works well for preschool or toddlers. I’ve used it for my baby program as well and had the parents chant along. Recommended.
