Scarf Song: Popcorn Kernels
Have we done this song before? Yes! Will we do it again sometime? Absolutely! Why? Because repetition is great for this age! Not only does it allow for your preschooler to memorize the words and actions, it also helps them be confident in participating and be leaders to friends who maybe haven’t heard this song before.
