>> BRI: Hi everyone. Welcome to our very special online Toddler Time. My name is Bri.

>> LAURA: Hi, I’m Laura.

>> BRI: And we’re both from Wynnum Library. So, before we start, we just want to do a special shout out to all the Wynnum Library toddlers and their grown-ups. We hope you’re safe and doing well and we can’t wait to see you soon. Laura, we better start the way we normally start.

>> LAURA: Alright. So, we’re going to start off with our Children’s Acknowledgement to Country. We’ve got it here behind us so you can follow along with the words. It starts off like this.

>> TOGETHER: Here is the land. Here is the sky. Here are my friends and here am I.

Beautiful.

>> BRI: Excellent. Now it doesn’t matter what’s going on, I’m always a happy person. Are you a happy person?

>> LAURA: I’m definitely a happy person.

>> BRI: Yay. So, we’re going to sing our special happy song, which is . . .

>> LAURA: 'If you’re happy and you know it'.

>> BRI: Are we ready?

>> LAURA: Yes.

>> BRI: Here we go.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: 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 and you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

>> BRI: Laura, what can we do with our feet if we’re happy?

>> LAURA: I think we can stomp our feet.

>> BRI: Oohh, stomp, stomp, stomp.

>> LAURA: Does that sound good?

>> BRI: Excellent.

>> LAURA: Alright, let’s try it.

>> BRI: Okay.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet. Stomp, stomp.
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet. Stomp, stomp. 
If you’re happy and you know it and you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet. Stomp, stomp.

>> BRI: Very good. Now I’ve got one more verse which I love to do but it’s a bit tricky because we’re going to have to do some whispering.

So, we’re going to whisper if you’re happy and you know it and then we’re going to shout Hooray! But first, we’ve got to be really quiet and whisper. Are you ready?

>> LAURA: Ready.

>> BRI: Okay.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. HOORAY!
If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. HOORAY!
If you’re happy and you know it and you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. HOORAY!

>> BRI: Well done. That was spectacular!

>> LAURA: Lovely.

>> BRI: Alright. Now, there is no denying that I am a silly person, but Laura is way sillier than me. Look. She’s already shaking. Do you think we can shake our sillies out?

>> LAURA: I think we can try.

>> BRI: We might need something to help us though.

>> LAURA: Mmm.

>> BRI: We’ve got some special scarves to shake our sillies out. Now you can find something at home. It doesn’t have to be a perfect scarf. It can be some clothes. It can be whatever you want. Alright. Are we ready?

>> LAURA: I’m ready.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: I’ve got to shake, shake, shake my sillies out.
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out.
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out.
Wiggle my waggles away.

>> BRI: You still look silly.

>> LAURA: I do.

>> BRI: And ridiculous. Alright. How about we try and jump the jiggles out?

>> LAURA: I think we can try.

>> BRI: Okay. Alright, here we go.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: I’ve got to jump, jump, jump my jiggles out.
Jump, jump, jump my jiggles out.
Jump, jump, jump my jiggles out.
Wiggle my waggles away.

>> BRI: Yay. Alright, I’ve got one more. It’s a bit of a clapping one. We’re going to clap our crinkles out. Can you do that?

>> LAURA: Yeah.

>> BRI: Here we go.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: I’ve got to clap, clap, clap my crinkles out.
Clap, clap, clap my crinkles out.
Clap, clap, clap my crinkles out.
Wiggle my waggles away.

>> BRI: You have an excellent wiggle!

>> LAURA: Oh, thank you.

>> BRI: That’s okay. Okay. Um, ooh okay we’ve done our silliness. Are you still silly?

>> LAURA: I think I’m okay for now.

>> BRI: Okay. Alright. Well if we’re going to stop being silly, we better do our handwashing song.

>> LAURA: Handwashing song. So, we’re going to rub our hands like this. Wash on top and side to side. Are you ready?

>> TOGETHER [singing]: This is the way we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands. This is the way we wash our hands to wash away the germs.

>> LAURA: Very good guys.

>> BRI: Excellent. Now the other one is we need to make sure we stay away, even though we are very good friends and we love each other, we’re still going to stay away.

>> LAURA: Yeah.

>> BRI: So we’re going to do helicopter arms.

>> LAURA: Helicopter arms.

>> BRI: Alright. Make sure we stay away. Our helicopter is going to go round and round. Here we go.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Helicopter, helicopter.
Round and round. Round and round.
Now it’s time to sit down, now it’s time to sit down.
On the ground, on the ground.

 >> BRI: Well done Laura!

>> LAURA: Alright, let’s take a seat.

>> BRI: Yep, time for us to sit down. Okay. Alright. Now we’re going to read a story but before we do that. This book is about a boat. Can you think of a song about a boat?

>> LAURA: Mmm, we might be able to row in this song.

>> BRI: Excellent idea.

>> LAURA: We’ve got our oars ready.

>> BRI: Okay let’s row our boat.

>> LAURA: Ready?

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream.
Merrily, 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. Argh!

>> BRI: There was a crocodile. Ugh!

>> LAURA: Are you okay?

>> BRI: We’re okay.

>> LAURA: We’re okay.

>> BRI: Alright, so it’s time for a story and this is called Who Sank the Boat and it’s written by Pamela Allen. Did you sink the boat, Laura?

>> LAURA: I don’t think I did but maybe we’ll find out in the story.

>> BRI: We will find out.

>> BRI [reading the book]: Beside the sea on Mr Pepper’s place there lived a cow, a donkey, a sheep, a pig and a tiny little mouse. They were good friends.

>>BRI: Just like you and me.

>> LAURA: Yeah.

>> BRI [reading the book]: And one warm sunny morning for no particular reason they decided to go for a row in the bay. Just like we did. We went rowing.

>> LAURA: A row.

>> BRI [reading the book]: Do you know who sank the boat?

>> LAURA: I don’t know yet. Let’s find out.

>> BRI [reading the book]: Was it the cow who almost fell in when she tilted the boat and made such a din?

>> BRI: If you make a din – are you really quiet or really loud?

>> LAURA: I think she was really loud.

>> BRI: I think so too definitely.

>> BRI [reading the book]: No, it wasn’t the cow who almost fell in. Do you know who sank the boat?

>> LAURA: Mmm.

>> BRI: Was it the donkey who balanced her weight, who yelled ‘I’ll get in at the bow before it’s too late?’

>> BRI: Do you think it was the donkey?

>> LAURA: It might’ve been the donkey.

>> BRI: She’s pretty big.

>> LAURA: Yeah.

>> BRI [reading the book]: No. It wasn’t the donkey who balanced her weight. Do you know who sank the boat?

>> LAURA: Mmm, I wonder who.

>> BRI [reading the book]: Was it the pig as fat as butter who stepped in at the side and caused a great flutter?

>>BRI: I think it was the pig.

>> LAURA: It was definitely the pig.

>> BRI: Definitely the pig, yep. Oh! No!

>> BRI [reading the book]: It wasn’t the pig as fat as butter. Do you know who sank the boat?

>> LAURA: Mmm.

>> BRI: Was it the sheep who knew where to sit to level the boat so that she could knit? No it wasn’t the sheep who knew where to sit. Do you know who sank the boat?

>>BRI: Who’s left?

>> LAURA: I don’t know but that boat’s looking pretty low in the water.

>> BRI: It is isn’t it? Oh.

>> BRI [reading the book]: Was it the little mouse, the last to get in who was lightest of all? Could it be him?

>>BRI: Do you think it’s him?

>> LAURA: I don’t think he could sink the boat.

>> BRI: A mouse is tiny; it can’t be the mouse. Oh! You do know who sank the boat. It was the mouse that finished them off. And look, they’re all walking home all wet and drippy except for the mouse.

>> LAURA: He looks pretty happy.

>> BRI: Cheeky little mouse.

>> LAURA: Mmm.

>> BRI: Well done Laura, we figured out who sank the boat. Alright, now I’ve got another and you might not know this one it’s called 'The Shoemaker' and we’re going to have to do some winding.

So, can you show me your winding arms? And winding back the other way. We’re going to do a big pull and hammer, hammer, hammer. Nice and slowly for those gross motor skills. Okay, here we go.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Winding this-a-way, winding that-a-way.
Pull, pull 
hammer, hammer, hammer.

>> BRI: Now we do that one at Wynnum Library a lot, but other libraries may not know it, so can we do it one more time?

>> LAURA: We can, definitely.

>> BRI: Here we go.

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Winding this-a-way, winding that-a-way.
Pull, pull 
hammer, hammer, hammer.

>> TOGETHER: Well done!

>> BRI: Okay, well I’ve got a special bear.

>> LAURA: I do too.

>> BRI: Oh, but my bear mmm looking a bit tired.

>> LAURA: A bit tired I think.

>> BRI: What do you think?

>> LAURA: We might have to sing them the song to try and get them to sleep.

>> BRI: What song?

>> LAURA: I think 'Rock-a-bye Your Bear' is a good song isn’t it?

>> BRI: It is.

>> LAURA: Might try that. Might stand up for this.

>> BRI: Okay.

>> LAURA: Okay, are we ready? It starts off…

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Everybody clap. Everybody sing, la, la, la, la!
Bow to your partner and then you turn around. Whee!
Hands in the air, rock-a-bye your bear. Bear’s now asleep. Sh, sh, sh.
Bear’s now asleep. Sh, sh, sh.

>> BRI: Oh

>> LAURA: Is yours asleep?

>> BRI: Mine’s asleep, is yours?

>> LAURA’S BEAR: [snoring]

>> BRI: Your bear’s snoring!

>> BRI: Okay

>> LAURA: Oh, I think mine’s asleep. We’ll pop them down here…

>> BRI: Yeah

>> LAURA: …so that they can keep sleeping.

>> TOGETHER: A nice blanket…

>> LAURA: …on the top to keep them warm.

>> BRI: Now can we sing a nice gentle song to keep the bears sleeping?

>> LAURA: I think so

>> BRI: Okay, what about 'Twinkle Twinkle'?

>> LAURA: 'Twinkle Twinkle'

>> BRI: Oh and can we do a tricky thing? I want the toddlers to help me sing. So we’re going to go “Twinkle twinkle little …” and I want you to finish off that word for me. Alright, are we ready Laura?

>> LAURA: Ready.

>> BRI: Okay here we go

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Twinkle, twinkle little…
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little…
How I wonder what you are.

>> BRI: Well done.

>> LAURA: That was really lovely

>> BRI: Okay, well I think that’s nearly what we’ve got time for today.

>> LAURA: I think so

>> BRI: So we better do a goodbye song.

>> LAURA: Yeah. We wave just like this to say goodbye. We start off…

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Now it’s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye.
Now it’s time to say goodbye, we’ll see you all next time.

>> LAURA: That was lovely.

>> BRI: Oh, it was lovely having everyone tuning in to see us. Thank you so much for doing it. We miss you and we hope to see you soon.

>> LAURA: Yeah. See you everyone.

>> BRI: Bye!
