Five Candles
Five candles on a birthday cake
Five, and not one more.
You may blow one candle out,
[make blowing sound and motion]
And that leaves four!
Four candles on a birthday cake
There for all to see.
You may blow one candle out,
[make blowing sound and motion]
And that makes three!
Three candles on a birthday cake
Standing straight and true.
You may blow one candle out,
[make blowing sound and motion]
And that leaves two!
Two candles on a birthday cake
Helping us have fun.
You may blow one candle out,
[make blowing sound and motion]
And that leaves one!
One candle on a birthday cake
We know its task is done.
You may blow this candle out,
[make blowing sound and motion]
And that leaves none!
Early Literacy Aside–Example: Rhyming words are an important step in early literacy. They will help your children distinguish words in the same family with the same vowel and ending sounds. This will help your children when they learn to sound out words to read.
