This Old Man is still counting!
This song is truly a classic, finding it's way to the forefront of popularity every decade or so. It often reminds me of "The Ants go marching" and "London Bridge," songs from my youth. We can march with the ants, lock people in the tower bridge and do the knick knack, paddywack motions to this great counting song without even thinking. Second nature!
I published a blog ...Once upon a time... about this book, the flannel board pieces, the song and promised to get the motions on line asap. The promise was long ago forgotten, til now. We did this song in Tunes for Tots recently and I realized that many of the mom/tot pairings did not know the motions - so now is the time
for all good children's librarians to review!
Here's a video! Just published it. I am a beginner at these Youtube videos. I think this will help. Keep singing!
P.S.(Piper Scipt): Here's our previous post on this book
