¨Warm-up activities introduce unit theme to engage students. ¨Teaching strategies provide instructional practices to assist teachers.

 I have two eyes that help me see,I’m glad that they belong to me,I have two ears that help me hearA whisper or a happy cheer.I have two hands that do so much.They write and catch and like to touch.I have two feet that help me run,And hop and skip and jump — what fun!

 Listen to the rhyme. Circle the names of the body parts you hear. Head and shoulder, knee and toe, knee and toe,Head and shoulder, knee and toe, knee and toe,And eye and ear and mouth and nose,Head and shoulder, knee and toe, knee and toe.
