Toddler Storytime: Bodies and Two Year Olds

Leave a comment

Almost the same as the one year old class, but I used two longer books this time. It is amazing the difference between groups. The one year olds would never have made it through both books but the two year olds did just fine.

Hello Bubbles

Hands Are Clapping

Two Little Blackbirds

Book: A Kiss Means I Love You by Kathyrn Madeline Allen I chose to do this for the 2 year olds because despite the beautiful pictures of real kids, it’s a little too long for the 1 year olds. Everyone really liked this one!

Parachute!

These are the Colors Under You

If You’re Happy and You Know It (shake the chute, shake it slow, shake it fast)

Ten Little Bubbles (I have a great volunteer who blew bubbles in the back of the room during this song so that all the kids got some, not just the ones closest to me)

Song Book: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Jane Cabrera
