Let's All Do a Little Clapping

Let's all do a little clapping,
Let's all do a little clapping,
and spread springtime cheer!

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.

The airplane song by Laurie Berkner

Way up high in the apple tree (modified from Literary Commentary)
Way up high in the apple tree, (lift arms)
10 little apples smiled at me!
I shook that tree as hard as I could, (shake back and forth)
Down came the apples, (wave hands towards ground)
Boy were they good!

Craft: We colored a picture of an airplane.

Literacy tip of the week: Rhyming words, such as those in "I ain't gonna paint no more", are great for helping your child isolate the sounds in language. This is an important skill when they are learning to read.
