Toddler time with the Zillmere Library team

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Hello! Welcome to our online toddler time. We’re coming to you today from the beautiful Zillmere Library. Unfortunately, we can’t host our usual program, but we hope you enjoy this online session. Let’s start off with our children’s Acknowledgement to Country, which we always start all of our sessions with. We say…

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

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Okay, good. Let’s try it again because we know repetition is very good for the brain. We say…

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

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Good job! Excellent! Okay, let’s start off with a bit of a handwashing song. We’re going to practice giving our hands a really good wash, while we sing the alphabet. Okay. Alright…

>> TOGETHER [singing with Brad playing guitar]: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z. Now I know my ABCs, next time won’t you sing with me?

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Good job! That was great! We’ve arranged some of our most favourite songs to sing to you today. Next, we’re going to sing one about Australian animals. Okay, so we’re going to practice making animals with our hands. First we’re going to make the mighty barramundi. Like this. This is the fish. Then the cockatoo. This is the cockatoo’s feathers. Emu. Dingo. And my favourite, kangaroo. We’re going to do the first time slowly, so that you can all practice at home along with us. Take it away, Brad!

>> TOGETHER [singing, in tune of Frère Jacques]: Barramundi, barramundi. Cockatoo, cockatoo. Emu, dingo. Emu, dingo. Kangaroo, kangaroo.

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Okay, let’s keep going, let’s do it again!

>> TOGETHER [singing, in tune of Frère Jacques]: Barramundi, barramundi. Cockatoo, cockatoo. Emu, dingo. Emu, dingo. Kangaroo, kangaroo.

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Great job. That’s excellent Well done.

>> BRAD: What’s next up?

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Well, this is another of our absolute favourites. You might have heard this one on Playschool once or twice. This is called ‘In a Name’. We’ll go nice and slow. This is going to be a great opportunity for us to practice clapping our hands and keeping the beat, which is a very important skill to learn.

>> BRAD: If you don’t know the words to this song, you can just clap along.

>> TOGETHER [clapping and singing]: Inanay gupu wanna. Inanay gupu wanna. Ay ay ay oola. Oola oola. Yippee yay yipee yay yipee yay. Goo wana goo wana. Goo wana goo wana. Goo wah - choo! Goo wana goo wana. Goo wana goo wana. Goo wah - choo!
Inanay gupu wanna. Inanay gupu wanna. Ay ay ay oola. Oola oola. Yippee yay yipee yay yipee yay. Goo wana goo wana. Goo wana goo wana. Goo wah - choo! Goo wana goo wana. Goo wana goo wana. Goo wah - choo!

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Very good, nice sneezing into your arm. Very good job. Now this one is Bev’s favourites and she even has a puppet. Do you know what this animal is? It’s got a long tail and it’s got big teeth. Okay, it’s a crocodile! What’s your song, Bev?

>> BEV: It’s called ‘Baby Crocodile’.

>> TOGETHER [singing, in tune of Frère Jacques]: Baby crocodile, baby crocodile. Don’t you bite! Don’t you bite! I’m running away from you, I’m running away from you. Out of sight, out of sight.

>> BEV: Now instead of 'baby crocodile', we’ll use 'Mummy crocodile'!

>> TOGETHER [singing, in tune of Frère Jacques]: Mummy crocodile, Mummy crocodile. Don’t you bite! Don’t you bite! I’m running away from you, I’m running away from you. Out of sight, out of sight.

>> BEV: Now, last but not least, Daddy crocodile. Arms nice and big.    

>> TOGETHER [singing, in tune of Frère Jacques]: Daddy crocodile, Daddy crocodile. Don’t you bite! Don’t you bite! I’m running away from you, I’m running away from you. Out of sight, out of sight. [clapping]

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Now I think we’re going to do an action song Bev, aren’t we?

>> BEV: Should we all stand up?

>> BRAD: We should all stand up.

>> BEV: Keeping our distance.

>> LIBRARIAN 1: Keeping our distance, yes. You can even do this with your toys at home.

>> BEV: 'The Grand Old Duke of York'.

>> TOGETHER [singing to guitar]: Oh the grand old Duke of York. He had 10,000 men. He marched them up to the top of the hill and then he marched them down again. And when they were up, they were up. And when they were down, they were down. And when they were only halfway up, they were neither up nor down.
