Smile and wave,
Smile and wave.
Everybody smile and wave,
I’m so glad you’re here.

Action Rhyme: I Can Stretch
I can stretch like a kitten
I can hop like a frog
I can swim like a turtle
I can shake like a dog
I can sway like a snake
I can flap like a bat
I can reach like a monkey
I can move like that!

Movement Song: Trot, Trot to Boston
Trot trot to Boston
Trot trot to Lynn
Trot trot to grandma’s house
But don’t fall in!

Rhyme: Criss Cross

Criss, cross, applesauce              (draw an X on child’s back with fingers)
Spiders running up your back   (walk fingers up child’s back)
Cool breeze                                    (blow gently on back of child’s head)
Tight squeeze                                (give child a big hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers!       (tickle child gently all over

 

Puppet Song: Movement: Did You Ever See a Red Bird
Did you ever see a red bird, a red bird, a red bird,
Did you ever see a red bird fly this way and that?
Fly this way, fly that way, fly this way, fly that way
Did you ever see a red bird fly this way and that.

Did you ever see a fishy, a fishy, a fishy,
Did you ever see a fishy swim  this way and that?
Swim this way, swim that way, swim this way, swim that way
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that.

Did you ever see a snake, a snake, a snake,
Did you ever see a snake slither this way and that?
slither this way, slither that way, slither this way, slither that way
Did you ever see a snake slither this way and that.

Movement: Big, Big, Big  

Big, big big
This is big big big (hold arms out to side)
This is small small small (cup hands together)
This is short short short  (hold hands with palms facing each other)
This is tall tall tall (reach one hand above head)
This is fast fast fast (circle fists quickly)
This is slow slow slow (circle fists slowly)
This is yes yes yes (nod)
This is no no no (shake head)
