Early Years Are Learning Years

Hand Print Poem

This is to remind you

When I have grown so tall,

That once I was quite little

And my hands were very small.

Directions: Have children dip their hand in watered down paint and place the print on construction paper. Have the above poem preprinted and cut into squares. Glue the poem next to the handprint. Write the date of the activity for a parent’s keepsake.

Special Special (tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

Special special special me
How I wonder what I’ll be
In this big world I can be
Anything I want to be
Special special special me
How I wonder what I’ll be
