Rhyme Time Loves You!

Have you been to Rhyme Time? Rhyme Time is our open story time for children 18 months to 3yrs and their favorite grownups. In this program parents and kids actively learn rhymes, songs and fingerplays all designed to enhance early literacy and encourage fun!

Here is what we did in Rhyme Time this week so you can follow along at home!

Action Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

Everybody Know I Love My Toes

Everybody knows I love my toes,
Everybody knows I love my toes,

Everybody knows I love my toes.

I love my knees, chin, belly and nose
I love my hair, cheeks, back and nose
I love my fingers, shoulders, ankles and nose
I love my neck, tongue, eyebrows and nose
I love my arms, legs, head and nose

Clap it!

Clap, Clap, Clap Your Hands

Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap your hands together.
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap your hands together.
