Fingerplay Fun Friday!

Today we present a brand new rhyme video featuring Miss Jeanie from the Cedar Mill Library's Bethany Branch.  The rhyme is titled "Zoom Zoom Zoom, We're Going to the Moon! 

Zoom Zoom Zoom We’re Going to the Moon 
(use your hands to make a rocket ship)
Zoom zoom zoom
We’re going to the moon
Zoom zoom zoom
We’ll get there very soon
If you want to take a trip
Climb aboard my rocket ship
Zoom zoom zoom
We’re going to the moon
Countdown
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2…. 1
BLAST OFF!!!

As kids count down from 10 to 1, they will grow more and more excited anticipating the final blast-off.  Keeping contained is an essential skill that kids will need once they get to school and begin to learn how to read.  Learning to read takes a lot of focus and determination.  Rhymes like "Zoom Zoom Zoom" give kids the opportunity to practice being patient while having fun at the same time!

We invite you to visit our website to learn more about helping to get kids ready to read.



Folks are invited to visit their local Washington County library to pick up a free copy of our Fingerplay Fun rhyme booklet, which features many of the rhymes found on our website.
