Where is Thumbkin?
Where is Thumbkin? (Hide hands behind back)
Where is Thumbkin?
Here he is, (Bring out one hand, thumb up)
Here he is. (Bring out other hand, thumb up)
Mighty glad to see you, (Wag one thumb at the other)
Mighty glad to see you. (Wag other thumb)
There he goes, (Put one hand behind back)
There he goes. (Put other hand behind back)

I Went to Visit the Farm
I went to visit the farm one day,
I saw a cow along the way.
And what do you think I heard it say?
Moo, moo, moo.
I went to visit the farm one day,
I saw a duck along the way.
And what do you think I heard it say?
Quack, quack, quack.
Change up the animals and sounds

Ten Little Firemen
Ten little firemen, sleeping in a row (hold child on lap)
Ding-dong! Goes the bell (give child gentle shake/tickle)
Down the pole they go (run fingers down child’s back or slide down legs)

Five Little Ducks
Five little ducks went out one day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck said, “Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!”
But only four little ducks came back.

Last verse:
Sad Mother duck went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said, “Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!”

This is the Way
(Tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we dust the ceiling
Dust the ceiling, dust the ceiling
This is the way we dust the ceiling
So early in the morning
This is the way we sweep the floor . . .
This is the way we vacuum the floor . .
This is the way we water the plants . . .
