Children are learning vocabulary all the time! It is important to expose them to words they can use to communicate with you. When you are at home talk to your children about the words in books and what they mean. You can also use books with alliteration to help children identify letters and sounds.

It is so important that you share books with your children that you enjoy! Kids can always tell when you are not really engaged – so always pick a book that you like. You should also pick a time to read that is best for both of you. You want your child’s time with books to be enjoyable so they will want to read more!

Songs

Can’t wait to celebrate
by Jim Gill

We clap our hands when we get together, (clap hands)
Clap our hands to celebrate.
Clap our hands when we get together,
My friends and I can hardly Waaaaaaiit…
(on the word “wait” everybody freezes)

Repeat with:
We stamp our feet.
We wave hello…
We bounce up and down…
We clap our hands…

If you’re happy & you know it
From PreschoolExpress

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face with surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re surprised and you know it, say “Oh my!” (Verse 2)

If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet (Verse 3)

Feelings (“Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”)
From PreschoolExpress

I have feelings, so do you.
Let’s all sing about a few.
We get happy, we get sad.
We get scared, we get mad.
I am proud of being me
That’s a feeling, too, you see.
I have feelings, so do you.
We just sang about a few.
