Stomp and sing hello.

Song: The Fish in the Ocean Tune:  The Wheels on the Bus

The fish in the ocean go swish, swish, swish,
Swish, Swish, Swish,
Swish, Swish, Swish,
The fish in the ocean go swish, swish, swish,
All through the sea!

Lobsters… snip, snip, snip
Sharks… chomp, chomp, chomp

Action Rhyme: We Can Jump

We can jump, jump, jump
We can hop, hop, hop
We can clap, clap, clap
We can stop, stop, stop
We can nod our heads for yes
We can shake our heads for no
We can bend our knees a little bit
And we can sit down really slow

The white sheep, the white sheep?
Can we find the white sheep?
We ant to say hello!

Fingerplay: This is Big

This is big, big, big (stretch hands far to sides)
This is small, small, small (cup hands together)
This is short, short, short (hold palms close vertically)
This is tall, tall, tall (hold palms far apart vertically)
This is fast, fast, fast (roll hands quickly)
This is slow, slow, slow (roll hands slowly)
This is yes, yes, yes (nod head)
This is no, no, no (shake head)

Fingerplay: Two Little Snails

Two little snails sitting on a hill
One named Jack,
the other named Jill
Run away Jack,
run away Jill
Come back Jack,
come back Jill

Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This

We wave goodbye like this
We wave goodbye like this
We clap our hands for all our friends
We wave goodbye like this
