September 14

Sing a Song

If you're happy and you know it

If you're happy and you know it,
Clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it,
Clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you're happy and you know it
Clap your hands.

Now sing it again with these actions:
stomp your feet
wave your arms
shout hooray

If You’re Happy and You Know It by Debbie Doo!

Try This

M is for Music
Teach your child to sing the alphabet to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb. Try using the same tune to sing this Mother Goose rhyme: Great A, little a, bouncing B! The cat’s in the cupboard and can’t see me. Make up some hand motions together.
