>>MONICA: Hi Everyone, it’s Monica here at Stones Corner Library, in our beautiful new children’s area. 

We’re really sad that you guys can’t be here with us at the moment to come along to our Toddler Time sessions and our storytime sessions.

But that’s not going to stop us doing these sessions online, so make sure you keep and eye on Brisbane City Council’s website so that you can see all of the different sessions that we’re uploading.
 
Today I’m just going to do a few different songs from our Toddler Time session. So please feel free to join in at home. 

The first thing that we are going to do is our children’s Acknowledgment to Country. So if you want to copy along with me it goes…

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

Very good, let’s do that one more time ready? 

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

Very good job. I think the first song we’re going to be doing, we’re going to be using our hands a little bit. So I might just get a little friend out. See if you guys know what animal this one is. 

This is my very special, little froggy friend and I know a song about some of the funny noises that he makes. We use our hands to go Galumph!

Can you do that at home with me? And if you want to, you can even hop around on the floor like a frog as well. So, are you ready? 

[singing]: Galumph, went the little green frog one day.
Galumph, went the little green frog.
Galumph, went the little green frog one day
and the frog went galumph, galumph, galumph. 

[singing]: But we all know frogs go ladedadeda ladedadeda ladedadeda.
We all know frogs go ladedadeda.
They don’t go galumph, galumph, galumph.

Good job! I think we can do that one, one more time. One thing I like to do with this song is if we sing the first part really slowly and annunciate all of the sounds and then we sing our ladedadedas, really, really quickly. Okay? Does that sound like fun? Okay you ready? 

[singing]: Galumph, went the little green frog one day.
Galumph, went the little green frog.
Galumph, went the little green frog one day
and the frog went galumph, galumph, galumph. 

[singing]: But we all know frogs go ladedadeda ladedadeda ladedadeda.
We all know frogs go ladedadeda.
They don’t go galumph, galumph, galumph.

Very good job!  Alright, I think we can move onto our next song now. 

And our next song we’ve got another animal friend and this one is a little ducky. Well, she’s not a little duck – she’s actually a Mummy ducky and she’s looking for her five little baby ducks. 

Can you show me five fingers? One, two, three, four, five! Very good. So we’re going to sing five little ducks are you ready? 

[singing]: Five little ducks went out one day, over the hills and far away,
Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only four little ducks came back.

One, two, three, four. Very good.

[singing]: Four little ducks went out one day, over the hills and far away.
Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only three little ducks came back.

One, two, three. Very good. 

[singing]: Three little ducks went out one day, over the hills and far away.
Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only two little ducks came back.

Can you show me two fingers? One, two. Very good. Ready? 

[singing]: Two little ducks went out one day, over the hills and far away.
Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only one little duck came back.

Can you show me one little finger all by itself? Very good.

[singing]: One little duck went out one day, over the hills and far away.
Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But none of her little ducks came back.

Oh no! So…

[singing]: Mother Duck went out one day, over the hills and far away.
Mother Duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
And all of five little ducks came back.

Very Good. Can you show me five fingers?  One, two, three, four, five!  Good job! 

Okay, I think we’ll put our little ducky away now and for our next song, I’ve actually got a picture for our next song. 

Does everyone know what this is here? I might have to get a bit closer. Do you know what this one is? That’s right. That’s a bus. 

And, do you guys know what the wheels on the bus do? Do they go up and down? Or side to side? Or do they go round and round like this? I think that’s right. Are you ready? We’ll do the 'Wheels on the bus'. 

[singing]: The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round.
The wheels on the bus go round and round, all the way to town.

Very good. What happens if it starts raining outside? We’ll have to turn on our wipers and they’re going to go swish, swish, swish. Ready? 

[singing]: The wipers on the bus go swish swish swish, swish, swish swish, swish, swish swish.
The wipers on the bus go swish swish swish, all the way to town.

Very good and who knows what noise a horn makes on the bus? It goes beep, beep beep.  What do you think? You ready? 

[singing]: The horn on the bus goes beep beep beep, beep, beep, beep, beep beep beep.
The horn on the bus goes beep beep beep, all the way to town.

Very good and what about the doors? The doors have to let people on and they’re going to go open and shut. You ready? 

[singing]: The doors on the bus go open and shut, open and shut, open and shut.
The doors on the bus go open and shut, all they way to town.

Very good. Oh it’s very bumpy on our bus so all of our little toddlers you go up and down. You ready? 

[singing]: The toddlers on the bus go up and down, up and down, up and down.
The toddlers on the bus go up and down, all the way to town.

Very good. Oh, but there are some babies on the bus and they’re not very happy and they go, whaa, whaa, whaa. Are you ready? 

[singing]: The babies on the bus go whaa whaa whaa, whaa whaa whaa, whaa whaa whaa.
The babies on the bus go whaa whaa whaa, all the way to town.

Very good. And there’s some mummies on the bus and they go, shh, shh, shh. You ready, very quiet? 

[singing]: The mummies on the bus go shhh shhh shhh, shhh shhh shhh, shhh shhh shhh.
The mummies on the bus go shhh shhh shhh, all the way to town.

 
Very good job. I think for our next song, because we’re being so quiet maybe we should do a song where we start off sleeping. 

Someone very special comes out when we go to sleep that’s the, Dingle Dangle Scarecrow. Are you ready? Ready to go to sleep and we have to be very quiet. You ready? 

[singing]: When all the cows are sleeping and the sun had gone to bed, up jumps the scarecrow and this is what he said…

[singing]: I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow with a great big floppy hat. I can shake my hands like this and I can shake my feet like that.
  
Very good. Now we have to go back to sleep ready? Back to sleep. Very quiet. Ready? 

[singing]: When all the hens are roosting and the moon’s behind the clouds, up jumped the scarecrow and shouted very loud. 

[singing]: I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow with a great big floppy hat. I can shake my hands like this
And I can shake my feet like that .

 
Very good job. Okay I’ve got one more little friend back here. I know a few different songs we can sing with him. I think we’ll start off with everyone’s favourite song. 

Who have we got? He’s got eight legs. He’s our Incy Wincy Spider. I think you might know a song about an incy wincy spider. Are you ready? 

[singing]: The incy wincy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed poor incy out.
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain.
So Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again.

Very good. Can we sing that one, one more time? Are you ready? 

[singing]: The incy wincy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed poor incy out.
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain.
So Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again.

Very good. I do know another song about a spider. And for this song, our little spider is going to start here on the floor. So lets get down on the floor. Are you ready? 

[singing]: There's a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There's a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There's a spider on the floor.
Can you see any more?  
There's a spider on the floor, on the floor.

Alight where’s our spider going now. He’s going up onto my knee. 

[singing]: There’s a spider on my knee, on my knee.
There’s a spider on my knee, on my knee.
There’s a spider on my knee, he's so tickly!
There’s a spider on my knee, on my knee!

 
Very good. Where’s he going now? Oh no, he’s on my arm. Are you ready? 

[singing]: There’s a spider on my arm, on my arm.
There’s a spider on my arm, on my arm.
There’s a spider on my arm but he won’t do any harm!
There’s a spider on my arm, on my arm!

 
Very good. Where’s he going now? Oh no, he’s up on my head!

[singing]: There’s a spider on my head, on my head.
There’s a spider on my head, on my head.
There’s a spider on my head, I do hope he's been fed!
There’s a spider on my head, on my head.

Very good job. I’m a bit scared of spiders so I might put him away now.

I think that’s about all the time we’ve got here today to do our little Toddler Time session. 

I hope you guys enjoyed it and if we’ve missed out any of your songs (any of your favourite songs) make sure that you sing them at home with you kids. 

You are your child’s first and most important teacher, so even though you can’t be in here with us make sure you keep up the singing and story reading at home. 

Make sure you keep that connection going because they will learn so much more from you then they will from us. 

But please, we can’t wait to have you back here in the library with us. Make sure you’re keeping your safe distance and washing your hands and we can’t wait to see you back in the library.
