Every month the song/dance/activity will change. Many of the songs will be from my Recordings. Please print the page and do the activity with your child. Teachers may print the page to use with their classes. If you have questions, Contact Me.
Listen to the whole song on H.U.M - Highly Usable Music or hear it here:
Ahoy, Mateys! September 19th is international "Talk Like A Pirate Day!" Shiver me timbers, did'ya not know that? Blimey! Yes, indeed, it's a blast to talk like a pirate, wear an eye-patch and sing a good pirate song... and this one's a hit! You can do it sitting down or standing up (of course Miss Carole prefers the latter, ARRRRR!) Use your own verses – it's good practice for 4's and up to find other rhyming words for the numbers. When I was two I found a clue... Ayyyy!
When I was one I had some fun on the day I went to sea
You can make up your own, or use these:
When I was one I had some fun on the day I went to sea (hold up one finger)
Age Range: 4 - 8 years old (if you really slow it down, 3's can do it, too!)
Purpose: counting, rhyming words, gross motor movement, AND JUST PLAIN FUN!!!
