This little piggy went to market 


This little piggy went to market 
This little piggy stayed at home 
This little piggy had roast beef 
This little piggy had none 
And this little piggy went 
Wee, wee, wee, all the way home!


‚ÄčChinese New Year Rhyme


Firecracker, firecrackers,
Boom-boom, boom-boom,
Red lanterns, red lanterns,
Swing-swing, swing-swing,
Dragon dance, dragon dance,
Stomp-stomp, stomp-stomp,
New Year, New Year - 
Open the door and COME IN!

Mix a Pancake

By Christina Rossetti

Mix a pancake,

Stir a pancake,

Pop it in the pan;

Fry the pancake,

Toss the pancake —

Catch it if you can.
