Opening and Closing Storytime

 I open and close both baby and toddler storytime the same way.  I usually give the handouts below to the parents on their first storytime class.

SERIES BABY STORYTIME
GENERAL Toddler STORYTIME

Opening sequence:  Hello Song then Open, Shut Them

Closing sequence:  The More We Get Together then Goodbye Song

I have added an additional rhyme for anytime there is a new participant.  Name Song–  When we do The Name Song we shake egg shakers or maracas to the beat of the song.  For toddlers, I will enunciate the syllables in their name with a shake for each syllable.
