Wee Read - Bathtime

Early Literacy Tip: Sing, sing, sing! Turn mundane tasks, such as grocery shopping, getting dressed, or taking a bath, into a song or rhyme.

Bathing by Liesbet Slegers 

Pig Takes a Bath by Michael Dahl 

Spot at Home by Eric Hill 
Read-together book 

Special Songs/Rhymes
Two Little Hands

Sung to: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”

Two little hands go clap clap clap

Two little feet go tap tap tap

Two little hands go thump thump thump (on the ground)

Two little feet go jump jump jump

One little body turns around

One little child sits right down.

Wash the Dishes
--from Lapsit Services for the Very Young II by Linda L. Ernst. New York: Neal-Schuman Publishers, Inc, 2001.

Five Little Piggies

Five little piggies rolling in the mud.

Squishy, squashy, felt so good!

Then along came the farmer,

who took one for a bath.

Continue to one little piggy

Wash your dirty hands (with scarves)

Sung to: The Farmer in the Dell
Wash your dirty hands, wash your dirty hands
Rub and scrub and rub and scrub and wash your dirty hands

Peek-a-Boo (with scarves)

Tune: Are You Sleeping?

Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo

I see you, I see you

I see your button nose,

I see your tiny toes.

Peek-a-boo, I see you!

--Jim Thomas
