Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Book – Moo! by David LaRochelle

Felt Board – Who Said Moo
I went to a farm when I was two,
nd on that farm, I heard a moo!
Who said moo? Horse, did you?
No way! Horse said, neigh!
Who said, moo? Lamb, did you?
No ha-ha! Lamb said,baa!
Who said, moo? Cat, did you?
He didn’t know how. Cat said, meow!
Who said, moo? Dog, did you?
That would be tough. Dog said, ruff!
Who said, moo? Hen, did you?
No such luck. Hen said, cluck!
I was feeling so sad, I wanted to cry,
When a black and white cow, came walking by.
Do you know what she said? I think you do.
Let’s say it together: The cow said: MOOOOOO!!!

Mr. Turkey and Mr. Duck
Mr. Turkey went out one day
(one hand is turkey, and comes out to front)
In bright sunshiny weather
He met Mr Duck along the way

(other hand is duck, and comes out )
They stopped to talk together
Gobble, gobble, gobble, quack, quack, quack
Gobble, gobble, gobble, quack, quack, quack
And then they both went back
(hands go back behind back)
Quack!

Let’s Get the Rhythm
Let’s get the rhythm of our knees (x3)
If you please
Let’s get the rhythm of our knees
Let’s get the rhythm of our shoulders…
Big boulders..
Let’s get the rhythm of our heads…
Oh dread..
Let’s get the rhythm of our feet…
How neat…

Mmm-Ahh went the Little Green Frog
Mmm ahh went the little green frog one day.
Mmm ahh went the little green frog.

Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as high as we can
Good-bye! (in high, squeaky voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as low as we can
Good-bye! (in a deep voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as fast as we can
Good-bye! (very quick)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as slow as we can
Good-bye! (very slowly and drawn out)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as quiet as we can
Good-bye! (in a whisper)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as loud as we can
GOOD-BYE! (yelling)

Early literacy tip:  Talk to your kids as often as possible, using as many words as possible. Don’t be afraid to use “big words;” just use those moments to teach new vocabulary. The more words a child knows, the easier learning to read is!
