Two Little Bumble Bees
Two little bumble bees sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and the other named Jill.
Fly away Jack!
Flay away Jill!
Come back Jack!
Come back Jill!

One named quiet and the other named loud.

Five hungry ants marching in a line, came upon a picnic where they could dine.
They marched into salad, they marched into cake.
They marched into black pepper!

Literacy Tip

Trying new fingerplays or action rhymes is fun for your toddler, but don’t forget the old favorites. Repeated play is important for learning. Be sure to keep incorporating familiar fingerplays or action rhymes along with new ones. Tip courtesy of: Center for Early Literacy Learning/CELL (earlyliteracylearning.org)
