The Grand Old Duke of York

The grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up to the top of the hill (lift arms in the air)
And he marched them down again (touch ground)
And when they're up, they're up. (lift arms)
And when they're down their down. (touch ground)
But when they're only halfway up (raise hands halfway)
They're neither up nor down. (reach up then down)

Wheels on the Bus


Here we go up, up, up (with parachute, from Reading with Red)

Here we go up, up, up! (lift chute)
Here we go down, down, down! (drop chute to floor)
Here we go back and forth! (sway chute from side to side)
And here we go round and round! (walk in a circle)

Ring around the Rosie (done with parachute)

Craft: We made valentine's wreaths from paper plates and torn red/pink construction paper.

Literacy tip of the week: Singing the words to a favorite book is a great way to enliven a familiar story. It is also a great way to help your child hear the songs that make up words.
