Sing a Song

Frère Jacques

French Version:

Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines,
Sonnez les matines
Ding Dang Dong,
Ding Dang Dong

English Version:

Are you sleeping, are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John?
Morning bells are ringing,
morning bells are ringing
Ding Ding Dong, Ding Ding Dong.


Frère Jacques

Try This!

Put on quiet music and show your child how to practice stretching. You can both count quietly as you stretch together. Try counting in French.
