Ten Plump Peas
10 plump peas in a peapod pressed 
(press two fists together)

Until one day that peapod went POP! (clap hands!)

EARLY LITERACY TIP OF THE DAY

Vocabulary - When you and your children are playing together, add more words. Children learn best in context - in the situation. Pretending while you play gives lots of opportunity for introducing new vocabulary.
