Letter of the Week
This week we are learning about the letter Ff.

Early Literacy Fact of the Week

Write

  • Encourage scribbling by providing many opportunities to write and draw. Keep crayons and paper on a table where children can return again and again.
  • Get magnetic letters for the refrigerator or make letters from cardboard or paper for the children to play with.
  • Have them sign their drawings to develop hand-eye coordination and build up their writing muscles. Children also begin to understand that writing represents words.
  • Talk about what they draw. Have them make up stores or write captions for their drawings so they make the connection between written and spoken language.

Songs & Rhymes

Open Song: Clap and Sing Hello

We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

Wave and sing hello
Stomp and sing hello.

Action Rhyme: Touch
Touch your nose, touch your chin,
That’s the way this game begins.
Touch your eyes, touch your knees,
Now pretend you’re going to sneeze.
Touch your hair, touch one ear,
Touch your two red lips right here.
Touch your elbows where they bend,
That’s the way this touch game ends.

Action Rhyme: Wiggle Your Fingers and Toes
Show me how you clap your hands
Clap, clap, clap
Show me how you tap your feet
Tap, tap, tap
Clap, clap, clap
Tap, tap, tap
Wiggle your fingers and toes!
Show me how you nod your head
Nod, nod, nod
Show me how you flap your arms
Flap, flap, flap
Nod, nod, nod
Flap, flap, flap
Wiggle your fingers and toes!

Action Rhyme: Roly Poly
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Up Up Up
(roll fists and reach up)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Down Down Down
(roll fists and hit the floor)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Clap, Clap Clap
(roll fists and clap)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Lap, Lap, Lap
(roll fists and pat your lap)

Action Rhyme: My Hands Say Thank You

My hands say thank you with a
clap, clap, clap
My feet say thank you with a
tap, tap, tap
My head says thank you with a
shake, shake, shake
My heart says thank you with a
kiss to take

Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
We wave goodbye like this
We wave goodbye like this
We clap our hands for all our friends
We wave goodbye like this
