Movement Activity: Stretch

First you stretch high
Then you stretch low
Next you stretch wide (arms wide)
then you stretch narrow. (arms in)
Stretch to the left
then stretch to the right
Stretch really fast (fast arm circles)
then stretch really slow (slow arm circles)
Everybody wave hello (hello!)
Show me a smile
and now we’re ready to go!
Let’s begin our story time show.

Action Rhyme: Hands

Hands upon your head,
Hands upon your head.
Up and down and up and down,
Hands upon your head.
Hands upon your face,
Hands upon your face.
Up and down and up and down,
Hands upon on your face.

Hands upon your ears. . .
Hands upon your Knees. . .

Action Rhyme: The Grand Old Duke Of York

He had 10,000 men
First he marched them UP the hill (stand up)
Then he marched them DOWN again (crouch down)
And when you’re UP you’re up (stand up)
And when you’re DOWN you’re down (crouch down)
And when you’re only half-way UP (crouch half-way)
You’re neither UP nor DOWN (stand up then sit down)
