Toddler Time…. my aerobic exercise for the day! In story times designed for toddlers (children, ages 18-36 months), the goal is to teach a variety of skills: gross motor skills, early literacy and language skills, and behavioral skills. This week in Toddler Time, I used the seasonal theme of “winter” to reinforce these skills. Use the books, songs and rhymes at home to continue the fun at home! Enjoy and happy winter! ~Ms. Mary

2 little snowbirds sitting on a cloud,
One named Quiet, One named Loud!
Fly away Quiet, Fly away Loud!
Come back Quiet, Come back Loud!
- The Sled
Climb, climb, climb,
Up the hill of snow!
Jump on the sled
And, down we go!

Polar bear, polar bear… turn around!
Polar bear, polar bear… touch the ground!
Polar bear, polar bear… reach up high!
Polar bear, polar bear… give a jump a try!
Polar bear, polar bear… slap your knees!
Polar bear, polar bear… sit down please!
- 5 Little Snowmen
5 little snowmen standing in a row.
Each with a hat and a big red bow.
Out came the sun and it stayed all day
And, one little snowman melted away.
4 little snowmen… 3 little snowmen… 2 little snowmen… 1 little snowman.
