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.

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

Early Literacy Fact of the Week
We know that learning how rhymes “work” as a critical pre-reading skill. Nursery rhymes and Mother Goose songs are such a fabulous way to introduce rhymes and rhyme-play to children. But in addition to helping to boost “decoding” skills such as phonological awareness, nursery rhymes contribute to reading readiness in another way: by adding to a child’s background knowledge. The more nursery rhymes children know (from all of their language cultures) the more allusions and references they will be able to make sense out of in the stories that they read and listen to.

  • When you share wordless books with your children, there’s no limit to the conversations you can have together! Taking part in lots of conversations helps your child learn new words, gives them a big vocabulary, and helps them become good readers. Talking with your child will help them get ready to read
