Did You Ever See a Worker?
Did you ever see a carpenter, a carpenter, a carpenter? (rock baby side to side)
Did you ever see a carpenter saw this way and that?
Saw this way and that way and this way and that way?
Did you ever see a carpenter saw this way and that?
Painter – brush (lift baby or arms up and down)
Driver – steer (rock side to side)
Digger – dig (move arms in digging motion)
Crane – reach (reach arms up high)
Mixer – mix (roll baby’s arms)

Wiggle Song
Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain
My hands are starting to wiggle,
My hands are starting to wiggle,
My hands are starting to wiggle,
Around and around and around.

I’ll Drive a Dump Truck
I’ll drive a dump truck, dump truck, dump truck
I’ll drive a dump truck all day long
(Continue with: school bus, airplane, fire truck, choo choo train, tugboat, etc.)

Slowly, Slowly
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (creep fingers up baby’s leg)
Creeps the little snail
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (arm)
Up the wooden rail
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (tickle all over)
Runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (dance fingers over tummy)
All around the house

This Little Piggy
This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home.
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went “Wee wee wee” all the way home

Ten Little Fishies
One little, two little, three little fishes,
Four little, five little, six little fishes,
Seven little, eight little, nine little fishes,
Ten little fishes swimming.

Ten little, nine little, eight little fishes,
Seven little, six little, five little fishes,
Four little, three little, two little fishes,
One little fish is swimming.
