ASL Sign of the Week: Letter G

Here we go up, up, up (from Reading With Red)
Here we go up, up, up! (reach up)
Here we go down, down, down! (touch floor)
Here we go back and forth! (sway side to side)
And here we go round and round! (turn around)

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)

The Alligator Jump (modified from Storytime with Ms. Tara)
Alligators jump, (jump)
Alligators slide, (slide back and forth)
All the alligators move from side to side.
Alligators jump, (jump)
Alligators giggle, (pretend to laugh)
All the alligators like to turn around and wiggle! (shake your behind)

The Goldfish by Laurie Berkner

My Grandfather Clock by Bob McGrath 

Groundhog in a hole (adapted from "Jack in the Box" by Jbrary)
Groundhog in the hole,
Sits so still,
Will he come out?
Yes he will!

Craft: G is for glue, so we glued paper to a print out of the letter G.

Literacy tip of the week: Having fun with letter sounds is a wonderful way to help develop your child's knowledge of the sounds that make up words. This will come in handy when they learn to read!
