ASL Sign of the Week: Money

If You're a Saver and You Know It

I Can Count (to the tune of the Hokey Pokey, from A to Z Kids Stuff)
You put one finger up (raise one finger)
You put one finger down (point finger down)
You put one finger up
And you shake it all around
You give it a shakey-shakey
And you turn it all about (turn around)
And that's how you learn to count!
(continue with as many numbers as desired)

Numbers Jump  (From Clifford's Top 15 Sing and Learn Songs)

Old MacDonald Had a Farm (as Old MacDonald "bought" animals we bounced corresponding puppets on our parachute)

Literacy tip of the week: The area of the brain that controls finger movement is in the same area of the brain as the one we use as we count.
