  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum

Clippity, clippity clop,
The horses go clip clop.
They gallop to the right.
They gallop to the left.
They gallop all around...
And they come to a stop.
Clippity, clippity clop.

***Parent Literacy Enhancement - Researchers have noted 6 areas of early literacy learning that kids need to experience to be ready to learn to read. One of these areas is Print Motivation. Print Motivation is an interest in and the enjoyment of books and reading. Reading books aloud to your kids at home, coming to storytime; these are all activities that increase Print Motivation.
