Sing a Song

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe

One, two,
Buckle my shoe.
Three, four,
Open the door.
Five, six,
Pick up sticks. 
Seven, eight,
Lay them straight.
Nine, ten,
Do it again!

Try This

Mix up your child’s shoes and see if they can find matching pairs. Can your child tie their shoelaces yet? Today is a good day to learn how! If they've mastered that, have them show off their oral language skills by telling you what color a certain pair of shoes is, how many shoes with laces they have, etc. Using a variety of vocabulary words is great for building literacy!
