I had my first baby/toddler storytime yesterday. It was a bit of a disaster. I had a feeling it might be. I know babies and toddlers need more songs and rhymes than stories. I went too story heavy and as you’d expect, I lost their attention.
Songs and rhymes are not my thing at all. I know I should figure out the basics of my storytime and use them from week to week. I just don’t know what to use or where to look for ones that I would be comfortable using.
So fellow storytime people, what are your recommendations of some simple tried-and-true songs and rhymes for your smallest patrons? Any recommendations of easy to make felt board accessories? Any and all help would be appreciated.
