Count down!

Posted on July 26, 2016 at 11:52 AM by Christina Stuck

Counting down is a terrific way to build anticipation and create focus. Kids love to count down because they just know that at the final number...something exciting is going to HAPPEN! We did a lot of counting down today during story time.

I'm a huge Laurie Berkner fan (as is my son!). We did her "Rocketship Run" song today because we had a story time based on outer space. How else can one get into space without a rocket?! 

Jbrary is another awesome source for songs. They have a ton of youbtube videos. I used their "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom" song today, which includes yummy countdowns to blastoffs. Check out their youtube page with space songs here and do them at home.

Nothing makes your day grow brighter than bringing a smile to your child's face. I'm sure these songs will do that!
