Song: What Will You Be When You Grow Up?
What will you be when you grow up?
You grow up, You grow up?
What will you be when you grow up?
When you get older?
Jack wants to be a firefighter, firefighter, firefighter,
Jack wants to be a firefighter when he gets older.

Fingerplay: Community Helpers
This is Dr. Bell who keeps us well. (thumb up)
This is Nurse Rick, who cares for the sick. (index up)
This is Dr. Heath, who cares for our teeth. (middle up)
This is Postman Dale, who delivers our mail. (ring up)
This one here — hey, that’s me! (pinky up)
We all work together for our community!

Song: Old MacDonald
Old MacDonald had a farm, eieio
And on his farm he had a chicken, eieio
With a cluck, cluck here and a cluck, cluck there
Here a cluck, there a cluck, everywhere a cluck, cluck
Old MacDonald had a farm, eieio

Movement Rhyme: Fireman, Fireman
(to the tune of Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear)
Fireman Fireman, turn around
Fireman, fireman, touch the ground
Fireman, fireman, drive the truck
Fireman, fireman, don’t get stuck!
Fireman, fireman, hurry to the fire
Fireman, fireman, spray the water higher.
Fireman, fireman, give a shout,
Fireman, fireman, you put the fire out! Hooray!
