Ring-a-Ding – September 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

Nursery Rhyme: Row Your Boat x4 (each time faster)
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

Nursery Rhyme/Fingerplay: The Itsy Bitsy Spider x2

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!

Scarves Activity
First, we used the scarves to make rainbow shapes (seven times – one for each color), horse tails and practiced oles! Then, we sang The Wheels on the Bus and then Two Little Bluebirds. Finally, after rolling the scarves into a ball, we threw them up together and tried to catch them!

Closing Song
We wave good-bye like this
We wave good-bye like this

We wave good-bye like this
