Movement Activity: See What I Can Do
(Tune: “Hokey-Pokey”)
Oh, I can reach up high,
Oh, I can reach down low.
Oh, I can clap real fast.
Oh, I can clap real slow.
I can do so many things,
I can twirl around.
That’s what I can do!

Oh, I can point up high,
Oh, I can point down low.
Oh, I can march real fast.
Oh, I can march real slow.
I can do so many things,
I can twirl around.
That’s what I can do!

Movement Activity: The Sleepy Firefighter
The sleepy firefighter climbs into bed (Yawn and stretch)
Down on the pillow he lays his head (Put head on hands and pretend to sleep)
Off goes the alarm (Clap)
And down the pole he slides (Make sliding down motion with hands)
He jumps into the truck
And to the fire he rides (Make driving motion with hands)
