|Recognition Rhyme||What’s in My Backpack? |
What’s in my backpack on this first day of school?
I’ll definitely need a writing tool! (pencil)
If I want to draw a picture for my mother,
I’ll need something with different colors. (crayons)
When I need to cut in a straight line,
These will do the job just fine. (scissors)
The paper flowers need to stick on a background of blue,
What item do I need to choose? (glue)
I’ve worked all morning and my tummy rumbles,
If I don’t eat soon, I’ll surely grumble! (lunch)

|Action Rhyme||Got a Pencil|
(to the tune of Clementine)
Got a pencil, got a pencil,
got a pencil on my [nose, toe, etc.]
First I lost it,
then I found it
Got a pencil on my [nose, toe, etc.]

I changed it from feather to pencil. I gave all the kids a pencil die-cut.
