Early Literacy Tip: “Read at least three stories a day: it may be the same story three times.  Children need to hear a thousand stories before they can begin to learn to read.  Or the same story a thousand times!” (Mem Fox’s Ten Read Aloud Commandments)

 Book 1: One Duck Stuck by Phyllis Root

 Transition: “Five Little Ducks”
Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck called with a
“Quack, quack, quack”
But only four little ducks came swimming back.

Four little ducks…
Three little ducks…
Two little ducks…
One little duck…

Sad mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack.”
And the five little ducks came swimming back.

 Wiggles: “Icky Sticky Bubblegum” by Carole Peterson

Bubble gum, bubble gum
Sticky sticky sticky bubble gum
Sticking your hands to your feet.
