Early Literacy Fact of the Week

• Fine motor skill activities, such as doing puzzles or crumpling paper, help strengthen the muscles in your child’s hand which prepares him or her to properly hold pencils, crayons, and markers.
• Fun activities to do together include playing with play dough (you can even make your own), build with Lego blocks, help your child send a letter or drawing to someone, even placing stickers help improve your child’s ability to learn to write.

Songs & Rhymes

Open Song: Wake Up Feet
Wake up feet, wake up feet
Wake up feet and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle
Wake up feet, wake up feet
Wake up and wiggle in the morning.

other verses: hands, eyes, ears

Clap, Tap, Bend
I take my little hands and go
Clap, clap, clap.
I take my little hands and go
Clap, clap, clap.
I take my little hands and go
Clap, clap, clap.
Clap, clap all day long.
I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap…
I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend…

Hands Go Up
Hands go up and hands go down.
I can turn myself around.
I can reach down to my shoe.
I can listen so can you.
Now let’s sit, I’ll show you how.
The next story is starting now.

Closing Song: I Think It’s Time We Have To Go
I think it’s time, we have to go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes.
Wave your tongue, wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips.
Blow me a kiss with your fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye.
Now it’s time to wave goodbye.
