First month done, on to Fall

We all survived September, now on to Fall. For October the color is orange and the shape is circle. The Nursery Rhyme Is ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’. We are trying to spend as much time outside as we can while the weather is good.

We do quite a bit of singing during the day and besides the ABC’s and Nursery Rhymes I am sharing a few favorites that you may or may not know.

When washing hands: (tops and bottoms of hands, then in between fingers)

Tops and bottoms, Tops and bottoms

In between, In between

Rinse with lots of water,Rinse with lots of water

 Now they're clean, Now they're clean

When cleaning up:

Clean up clean up, everybody everywhere

Clean up clean up everybody do their share

Before snack: (with hand motions)

Open shut them, open shut them give a little clap, clap, clap

Open shut them, open shut them put them in your lap, lap, lap

Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them, right up to your chin, chin, chin

Open wide your little mouth but do not let them in, in, in

Blessing before we eat snack:

God our Father, God our Father, Once again, once again

We will ask your blessing, we will ask your blessing

Amen, Amen

Bumblebee song (may be a little different from the one you used to sing as we thought licking and throwing up the bumblebee might not be appropriate :)

(catch a 'bee' buzzing around in your hands)

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee, won't my mama be so proud of me, I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee OUCH, it stung me

I'm squishing up my baby bumblebee, won't my mama be so proud of me, I'm squishing up my baby bumblebee EWWW, it's messy

I'm wiping off my baby bumblebee, won't my mama be so proud of me, I'm wiping off my baby bumblebee OH all clean

These are just a few to start, if your child is singing something at home that you do not quite understand, please let us know and we will be happy to share what it is.
