Early Literacy Fact of the Week

When talking with your child it’s important to be patient. It can take at least ten seconds for a child to respond to a question. They need that time to comprehend the question and come up with a response.

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.

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.

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: Ten Fingers
I have ten fingers (hold up both hands, fingers spread).
And they all belong to me, (point to self).
I can make them do things-
Would you like to see?

I can shut them up tight (make fists)
I can open them wide (open hands).
I can put them together (place palms together).
I can make them all hide (put hands behind back).

I can make them jump high (hands over head).
I can make them jump low (touch floor).
I can fold them up quietly(fold hands in lap).
And hold them just so.

Movement Rhyme: Number Fun
All the fives, dance the jive.
All the fours, knock on the floor
All the threes, shake their knees.
All the twos, paddle canoes.
All the ones, stand and run.
All the numbers look alive.

Guessing Game: Four Little Shapes
Tune: Five Green & Speckled Frogs
Four little shapes I’ll guess
I’ll try my very best
Can I guess each and every one?
Uh-huh!

Five points twinkling so bright
Shines in the sky at night
What do I think this shape is called?
A star!

Round like a toy truck wheel
A ball is placed with by a seal
What do I think this shape is called?
A circle!

I’m like a box or book
Four sides, just take a look
What do I think this shape is called?
A square!

Three corners and three sides
Shaped like a piece of pie
What do I think this shape is called?
A triangle!
