Finger Rhyme:

Let’s take a look at this book,
Here is the cover,
We open it wide,
Here are all the pages hidden inside,
There are words and pictures,
We look and we look,
And when we are finished,
We close up the book!

Song: Zoom Zoom Zoom!

Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon!
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon!
If you want to take a trip, climb aboard my rocket ship!
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon!
In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, BLASTOFF!

Far, far, far, we’re going to the stars…
Fun, fun fun, we’re going to the sun…

Sign Language Song: “Counting Friends”
Tune: “London Bridge”

How many friends are here today, here to read*, here to play?
How many friends are here today?
Let us count them!

Bubble Song #1: “Catch a Bubble”
Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”

Can you catch a little bubble on your finger?
Can you catch a little bubble on your finger?
Can you catch a little bubble, no it won’t be any trouble,
Can you catch a little bubble on your finger?

Nose? Head? Toe? etc.

Bubble Song #2: “Counting Bubbles”
Tune: “One little, two little…”

One little, two little, three little bubbles,
Four little, five little, six little bubbles,
Seven little, eight little, nine little bubbles,
Ten little bubbles go pop, pop, pop!
