Bear loved playing this. We sang it so many times with shapes (I used the wonderful shape lacing cards I won earlier this year from ABC and 123), but then I thought, you could use the Hokey Pokey to review anything!
We sang it to review colors using her Mickey Mouse paint chips.
We sang it to review the letter sounds using her foam alphabet (“You put the /b/ like baby in, you put the /b/ out…”).
You could use it to review letter names.
You could use it to review numbers using foam numbers or wooden number pieces.
Any other ideas?
