Peanut Butter & Jelly
First you take the peanuts and you crunch ‘em, you crunch 'em (chorus)
Then you take the grapes and you squish ‘em, you squish 'em (chorus)
Then you take the bread and you spread it, you spread it (chorus)
Then you take your sandwich and you eat it, you eat it (chorus)
Chorus: For your peanut, peanut butter, and jelly! 

Ten Plump Peas
10 plump peas in a peapod pressed 
(press two fists together)
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest

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

EARLY LITERACY TIP OF THE DAY

Vocabulary - Children enter school knowing anywhere from 5,000 to 20,000 words depending on how much they have been spoken or read to.  They can’t know “too many“ words, so keep reading and talking with your children.
