Whether it is said in English or Español (Spanish), hearing "thank you" is always appreciated.

One way to help your child gain early literacy skills is to share with him or her your favorite rhymes, songs, and stories in your own language. This is a fun rhyme to use with kids to introduce the idea of saying thank you.

English: Suit actions to the words.

My hands say thank you
With a clap, clap, clap.
My feet say thank you
With a tap, tap, tap.
Clap, clap, clap.
Tap, tap, tap.
I turn around,
Touch the ground,
And with a bow,
I say... Thank you, now.

Español: Haga lo que las palabras sugieren.

Mis manos dicen gracias
con un clap, clap, clap.
Mis pies dicen gracias
con un tap, tap, tap.
Clap, clap, clap.
Tap, tap, tap.
toco el piso
y con emoción
yo digo... gracias de a montón.

Help your child be ready to read by practicing early literacy skills. Having conversations with your kids about everyday occurrences like taking a walk outside or going to the grocery store will help them with their vocabulary. After listening to this rhyme, have a conversation with your child about ways they can say thank you to different people.
