Rhymes and Songs

Who Is Hiding in My Tree?
Who is hiding? Who is hiding?
In my tree. In my tree.
It’s a little squirrel. It’s a little squirrel.
Yes, indeed! Yes, indeed!
(Repeat with additional animals –
bird, mouse, owl, chipmunk, spider)

Two Little Birdies
Two little birdies sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and the other named Jill.
Fly away Jack!
Flay away Jill!
Come back Jack!
Come back Jill!

Two little birdies sitting on a cloud.
One named quiet and the other named loud.
Fly away quiet!
Fly away loud!
Come back quiet!
Come back loud!

Five Green and Speckled Frogs
Five green and speckled frogs sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs — YUM YUM!
One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool.
Then there were four green and speckled frogs.
(Repeat with 4, 3, 2 and 1)

Literacy Tip

Reading together – shared reading – is the single most important way to help children get ready to read. Reading together increases vocabulary and general knowledge. It helps children learn how print looks and how books work. Shared reading also helps children develop an interest in reading.  Children who enjoy being read to are more likely to want to learn to read themselves.
