Wee Read - Summer Birds

Early Literacy Tip of the Week:
Using sign language with your baby helps children to think and express themselves symbolically, long before they can talk.

Flutter, Flutter, Butterfly
Sung to: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”
Flutter, flutter, butterfly,
Floating in the summer sky.

floating by so merrily.
Flutter, flutter, butterfly,
floating in the summer sky.

Two Little Blue Birds
--Lapsit Services for the Very Young II by Linda L. Ernst. New York: Neal-Schuman Publishers, Inc, 2001.

You spin a cocoon
(Spin in a circle)
Then you wait inside
(Crouch down low and cover face)
And when you come out
(Link thumbs, still covering face)
You’re a butterfly!
(Lift hands fluttering into the atmosphere!)

I Wiggle My Fingers

Book Two
I See Summer by Charles Ghingna

The Ducks on the Pond
Sung to: “The Wheels on the Bus”
The ducks on the pond go quack quack quack,
Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack.
The ducks on the pond go quack, quack, quack,
All day long.
--Children’s Programming Monthly v. 1 no. 10 pg. 5 by Kathy MacMillan

Blue Bird, Blue Bird
Blue bird, blue bird,
On my window.
Blue bird, blue bird,
On my window.
Blue bird, blue bird,
On my window.
Oh, Mommy, I’m tired.
