Bazooka Bubblegum [Tune: Bazooka Bubblegum]

My momma she gave me a nickel
She told me to buy a pickle
But I didn’t buy a pickle (Chorus)

My momma she gave me a dime
She told me to buy a lime
But I didn’t buy a lime (Chorus)

My momma she gave me a quarter
She told me to buy some water
But I didn’t buy the water (Chorus)

My momma gave me a dollar
she told me to buy a collar
But I didn’t buy a collar (Chorus)

(Chorus)
Instead, I bought some bubblegum.
Bazooka-zooka bubblegum
Bazooka-zooka bubblegum

Sticky, Sticky Bubblegum [tune: Sticky Bubblegum]

Sticky, sticky, sticky bubble gum
bubble gum, bubble gum,
sticky sticky sticky, bubble gum
Sticking to your hands to your feet.
Un-Stick!

... your fingers to your knees...
...your toe to your nose...
...your hand to someone else's hand...
...your foot to someone else's foot..
...your back to someone else's back...
...your head to the floor

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum [Tune: Bubble gum, Bubble gum]

Bubble gum, bubble gum,
in a dish
How many pieces do you wish?

[Touch each shoe in the circle as you repeat the rhyme. The child you end on gives a number between 1 and 10,
then you touch each shoe in circle till you reach that number. That child claps and pops up.
Continue like this around the circle till you want to stop]

The More We Read Together [Tune: The More We Get Together]

The more we read together, together, together,

'Cause reading and singing and talking together,
Is how you learn the six skills for reading by six.
