September Babytime Rhymes

Every month we do a core group of rhymes and fingerplays in Babytime listed below. Repetition is the key to learning these rhymes. Did you know what we repeat once in 30 days we have only a 30% chance of remembering, but what we repeat six (in our case four ) times in 30 days we have 90% chance of remembering.                                   

Up, down, Turn Around-Hello!

Up, down

Turn around

Touch the sky

And touch the ground

Wiggle your fingers

Wiggle your toes

Wiggle your shoulders

Say, “Hello!”

Where is Baby? (Tune of Frere Jacques)

Where is baby? Where is baby?

There you are! There you are!

We’re so glad to see you.

We’re so glad to see you.

Yes we are! Yes we are!

Cheek Chin

Cheek, chin, cheek, chin

Cheek, chin, nose.

Cheek, chin, cheek, chin

Cheek, chin, toes

Cheek, chin, cheek, chin,

Cheek chin,

Up baby goes!

Roly Poly

Roly-Poly

Up, up, up

Roly-Poly

Down, down, down.

Roly-Poly

In, in, in

Roly-Poly

Out, out out.

This Little Piggy

This little piggy went to market.

This little piggy stayed home.

This little piggy had roast beef

And this little piggy had none.

And this little piggy went wee,wee,wee

All the way home.

Ride, Baby Ride

Ride, baby, ride ch,ch,ch

Ride that horsey, ride ch,ch,ch

Ride, baby, ride ch,ch,ch

Ride that horsey, ride ch,ch,ch

Neiggghh-Whoa!

10 Little Bubbles

One little, two little, three little bubbles

Four little, five little, six little bubbles

Seven little, eight little, nine little bubbles

Ten little bubbles go POP, POP, POP!

Driving in my car

I’m driving in my car

I’m driving in my car

Beep-beep-toot-toot

I’m driving in my car

 Other Verses:

I’m driving really fast…

I’m driving really slow…

Mother & Father & Uncle Jon

Mother & Father & Uncle Jon went to town one by one.

Mother fell off (lean left) & Father fell off (lean right),

 but Uncle Jon went on & on & on & on!

Popcorn

Popcorn, popcorn sizzling in the pan

Shake it up, shake it up, bam, bam, bam.

Popcorn, popcorn now it’s getting hot

Shake it up, shake it up, pop, pop, pop!

Let’s Go Riding in the elevator

Let’s go riding in an elevator!

Let’s go riding in an elevator!

First floor,

Second floor,

Third floor

Fourth floor,

Doooowwwwnnn!

Row your Boat –Croc Remix

Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream,

Merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream,

If you see a crocodile

Don’t forget to scream ‘Ahhh!’

Skinnamarink

Skinnamarink-a-dinky-dink.

Skinnamarink-a-doo I-love-you (I love you)

Skinnamarink-a-dinky-dink.

Skinnamarink-a-doo. I-love-you

I love you in the morning and in the afternoon

I love you in the evening and underneath the moon-ohh

Skinnamarink-a-dinky-dink.

Skinnamarink-a-doo. I-love-you!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up, down, Turn Around-Goodbye!

Up, down

Turn around

Touch the sky

And touch the ground

Jiggle your tummy

Blink your eyes

Blow a kiss and say goodbye!
