Singing Time

(Activity 23 Month 10)

I wake up in the morning early 

And always the very first thing  

I poke up my head and I sit up in bed 

And I sing and I sing, and I sing.

 (This poem was memorized and recited each morning in our family.  Use this poem or find your own for your wake-up routine.)
