Hello – Everybody Count One

Everybody count one, ONE!

Storytime has just begun,

Everybody count two, TWO!

Shake your shoulders, show your shoes,

Everybody count three, THREE!

Listen very carefully,

Everybody count four, FOUR!

And put your bottoms on the floor.

Early Literacy Tip – TALK

Talking to a child will build their vocabulary and storytelling skills. Use unfamiliar words and explain their meaning. Early literacy tip for caregivers- Have a grownup narrate what they are doing to baby—for example—we are getting ready to go to the store, so we need to put your shoes and coat on, get Mommy’s purse and car keys, lock the door, etc.
