Ring-A-Ding – June 8, 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

Nursery Rhyme: Baa Baa Black Sheep x2

Fingerplay: Open, Shut Themx2
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, creep them
Creep them, creep them
Right up to your chin, chin, chin
Open wide your smiling mouth
But do not let them in!

Fingerplay: 1, 2, Buckle My Shoe
x2
