FAVORITE FINGERPLAYS AND ACTION SONGS

Baby Mice
Where are the baby mice?
Squeak, squeak, squeak. 
(hide your hand behind your back)
I cannot see them peek, peek, peek. 
(bring your fist forward)
Here they come out of their hole,
One, two, three, four, five, and that is all.
(open your fingers one at a time)

The Hippopotamus
The hip-the hip-the hippopotamus! 
(pat rhythm on your legs)
Got on, got on, got on the city bus. 
(pat rhythm on your legs)
And all, and all, and all the people said,
(pat rhythm on your legs)
"You're squishing us!"
(squish your cheeks together with your hands)

Do Your Ears Hang Low?
(Do it faster each time)
Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie 'em in a knot?
Can you tie 'em in a bow?
Can you throw 'em o'er your shoulder
Like a continental soldier
Do your ears hang low?

FAVORITE IPOD ACTION SONGS 

Jump Up, Turn Around by Jim Gill (CD: Jim Gill Sings Moving Rhymes For Modern Times)
Clap Your Hands by Old Town School of Folk Music (CD: Wiggleworms Love You)
Jumping and Counting by Jim Gill (CD: Jim Gill's Irrational Anthem)

EARLY LITERACY TIP OF THE DAY

Background Knowledge - Give kids extra time to answer you when you ask questions. Talking back and forth uses four different parts of the brain!
