Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing – April 25, 2012

Song: It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
We’re going to sing a song
And it won’t take long
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing Thing Time

Fingerplay: Baa Baa Black Sheep x2

Song: Cuckoo
Tick-tock, tick-tock
I’m a little cuckoo clock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
It’s one o’clock
Cuckoo!
**we kept on going until we got to 6 o’clock, each verse getting progressively faster**

Fingerplay: 1, 2, Buckle My Shoe
x2
