Bibbity Bobbity Boo Little Book
On the first day of school we sing the rhyme “Williby Wallaby Woo: An elephant sat on you! Williby Wallaby Wee: An elephant sat on me!” We pass a small stuffed elephant around our circle and “CHANGE” each child’s name by replacing the first letter with a W: Susie becomes Wusie & Justin becomes Wustin. The kids love it and it’s a great way to learn names!
Bibbity Bobbity Boo is exactly the same tune and idea! Just pass around a CREEPY SPIDER or TOUCH EACH CHILD’S HEAD WITH A MAGIC WAND instead of an elephant! Bibbity Bobbity Bennifer:A spider crawled on Jennifer! Bibbity Bobbity Boo: A spider crawled on you! My kids love it even more than Williby Wallaby Woo!
I’ve created a Bibbity Bobbity Little Book to accompany the rhyme. Children read the text, print words, and select or color pictures of classmates to include in their book. Students walk around the room, looking for the classmates who’s pictures are in their individual books. Once the classmate is found, he/she prints his/her Bibbity Bobbity Name in the Little Book. It’s really fun to watch the kids interact with each other as they walk around the room looking for their classmates!
Once all the Bibbity Bobbity Names have been printed in the books, everyone READS! This is a great book to use a “magic wand” in lieu of a “reading wand” to track the text. For individual reading, provide “plastic or edible pointy fingers” to track the text. Kids love to track text using these pointy fingers!

Each Child’s Little Book will contain 13 pages.
