Ring-a-Ding – September 21, 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
Baa baa black sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir
Three bags full

One for the master
And one for the dame
One for the little girl
Who lives down the lane

Baa baa black sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir
Three bags full

Nursery Rhyme: Pat-a-Cake x2
Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake
Baker’s man
Bake me a cake
As fast as you can.

Roll it…
Pat it…
And mark it with a B…
Put it in the oven for
Baby and me!

Movement/Song: Zoom Zoom Zoom x2
Zoom zoom zoom
We’re going to the moon
Zoom zoom zoom
We’re going to the moon

In 5…4…3…2…1…
Blast off!

Sleeping, sleeping
All the children are sleeping
Sleeping, sleeping

Scarves Activity
First, we sang The Wheels on the Bus and then I’m Bringing Home a Baby Bumblebee. Finally, after rolling the scarves into a ball, we threw them up together and tried to catch them!

The bells, parachutes and beach balls came out as the kids played to the music of Raffi

We wave good-bye like this
We wave good-bye like this
Let’s clap for all our friends
We wave good-bye like this
