Sign This! (Baby Storytime Magic Edition): Three Jellyfish

Three jellyfish,

Three jellyfish,

Three jellyfish sitting on a rock.

Zoop! One jumped off!

Two jellyfish…

One jellyfish…

No jellyfish…

But then . . . zoop! One jellyfish jumped back on.

Zoop! Another jellyfish jumped back on.

Zoop! Another jellyfish jumped back on.

Let’s count them! One. . . two. . . three!

Three jellyfish,

Three jellyfish,

Three jellyfish sitting on a rock.

Literacy bit (Share this with caregivers!): “Using basic signs with songs helps your child not only develop manual dexterity, which will later be important for grasping and holding things and for writing, but also make connections with concepts and language. This song uses a simple story to emphasize opposites.”

Look for more active fun for baby storytimes in Baby Storytime Magic: Active Early Literacy through Bounces, Rhymes, Tickles, and More by Kathy MacMillan and Christine Kirker, coming soon from ALA Editions.

    You all get up early! Are you still at the library in Howard County, MD?

    1. Hi Kaleema–

      Not at HCL anymore – left there about 16 years ago! But still presenting storytimes, as you can see. :) (And, actually, I don’t get up that early either–we schedule posts to go up in the morning so people will be more likely to see them, but they tend to be written late at night!)
