If your clothes have any red, put your hands on your head.
If your clothes have any red, any red.

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

Marco the Polar Bear
Marco the polar bear as white as the snow.
Sat on the ice near the cold waters flow.
“Dinner! I need dinner!” he said.
He made a wish!
Then stuck his paw in and came up with a…FISH!
What color was the fish?
(repeat rhyme using various color fish puppets or clipart)

Literacy Tip

Sharing a book with your preschooler is a great conversation starter. Ask questions about the pictures and the story. Before you get to the end of a story, ask your preschooler what she thinks will happen next. Encourage her to share her ideas.  Tip courtesy of: Center for Early Literacy Learning/CELL (earlyliteracylearning.org)
