Movement Rhyme: Reach and Wiggle
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your eyebrows, wiggle your nose.
Put your bottom on the floor,
Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

Now I know my ABCs, next time won’t you . . .
CLAP with me
STOMP with me
JUMP with me

Song: Autumn Leaves are Falling Down
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down,
All over town.

The cold wind blows them all around,
All around, all around.
The cold wind blows them all around,
All over town.

Take a rake and pile them up,
Pile them up, pile them up.
Take a rake and pile them up,
All over town.

Throw the leaves into the air
To the air, to the air
Throw the leaves into the air
All over town.

Movement Rhyme: Touch Your Nose
Touch your nose
Touch your chin
That’s the way this game begins.
Touch your eyes
Touch your knees
Now pretend you’re going to sneeze.
Touch your hair
Touch your ear
Touch your two red lips right here.
Touch your elbows
Where they bend
That’s the way this touch game ends.
