Senses-Babies

There are so many books that relate to the five senses as so much of a babies world is experience by what they see, hear, feel, taste and, touch.

Books

Bounces, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Apple Tree
Way up high in the apple tree, raise baby’s arms over head
Two little apples did I see. hold up two fingers
So I shook that tree as hard as I could, jiggle baby
And down came the apples, lower baby between your legs to the ground
Mmm! They were good! Rub baby’s tummy and hug

Rock the Baby
Rock the baby, rock the baby, 1-2-3
Watch the baby, watch the baby, smile at me
Bounce the baby, bounce the baby, on your lap
Don’t forget to teach the baby how to clap: clap, clap, clap, clap!

Music

Smooth Road to London Town by Kathy Reid-Naiman
We do a couple of different movements with this song. When the road is smooth we sway from side to side. When the road is rough we bounce up and down. When the road goes up and down we pick the babies up and lower them back down.
What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
We take our rattles out and shake them along to the song.
