Reach for the Ceiling

Literacy Tip

Hi, my name is Kia and this is my son Bodhi who is 2 years old. This rhyme encourages play and motion to accompany the words. When you and your child play together, learning words and their meanings is lots of fun. You can make up new and different games that will add to your conversations with your child.


Reach for the ceiling (reach and stretch),
touch the floor,
stand up again,
let’s do some more.
Touch your head,
then your knee,
up to your shoulders,
like this you see.
Reach for the ceiling,
touch the floor.
That’s all for now,
there isn’t any more (shake head).
