Movement Activity: Sometimes I like to Curl Up in a Ball

Sometimes I like to curl up in a ball,
So no one can see me
Because I’m so small.

Sometimes I like to jump high as I can,
To see how much noise I can make
When I land.

Sometimes I just like to walk round and round,
I pigeon step, pigeon step,
Till I fall down.

Sometimes I like to stand still as a tree,
And watch everyone rush
Around about me.

But when the day ends and the sun starts to fall,
Then I do what I do best of all,
I find somewhere soft,
somewhere cozy and small…

And that’s where I like to curl up in a ball.

Rhyme: 5 Little Fish

Five little fish swimming in the sea
teasing Mr. Shark “You can’t catch me, you can’t catch me.”
Along comes Mr. Shark as quiet as can be
and snaps that fish right out of the sea.



We did a felt board story of There Was  An Old Monster by Rebecca Emberley

We danced with wrist ribbons.

We played with the parachute and made the dust bunnies fly!
