Gabbie: HBD and Twinkle Twinkle (and other nursery rhymes)
Been teaching Gabbie some nursery rhymes for weeks now. She's learned the ABC song, Barney Song, I Have Two Hands and Twinkle Twinkle, which is her favorite (as of now). So for her Ninong's birthday, she sang it after her usual HBD greetings.
Our current song is Five Little Monkeys. It's about the monkeys who kept jumping on the bed but one by one fell off the bed and bumped their heads. Then the momma monkey would call the doctor and the doctor would say "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"
So whenever Gabbie would jump on the bed, I ask her what the doctor said in the song and then she'd stop.
We're also into The Eensy Weensy Spider. She's having fun doing the actions. This is another way of preparing her for formal schooling. I don't want her lost when the teacher asks them to sing the usual nursery rhymes.
