Up Down Turn Around

(Activity 14 Month 8)

Up, down

Turn around.

Touch the sky,

And touch the ground.

Jiggle tummy,

Blink your eyes, 

Blow a kiss, 

And say “good-bye “

I Need To Be Honest

(Activity 13 Month 8)

I need to be honest

  My mom and dad say

And telling the truth

  Is just one way!

 

Why be honest

I ask mom and dad.

You will feel your best

When the truth is always said.
