Builders and Breakers by Steve Light
I Spy on the Farm by Edward Gibbs

Let’s Go Fly A Kite by Georgiana Stewart
I Feel Crazy So I Jump In My Soup by Laurie Berkner

Yoga Pose of the Week: Airplane
Coming to stand on one leg, try and get your balance and spot something in front of you. Tilt yourself forward and start to fly. Lift your leg higher and soar thru the sky! Flying!

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: The More We Get Together
The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

Fingerplay: Five Little Nails
Five little nails, standing straight and steady
Here I come with my hammer ready!
Bam, bam, bam! That nail goes down.
Now there’s just four nails to pound.
(count down)

Prop Rhyme: Jack In The Box
Jack in the box
Sits so still
Will he come out?
Yes, he will!

Prop Song: Popcorn Song
Popcorn kernels, Popcorn kernels (wave scarves overhead)
In the pot, in the pot (make their scarves ‘disappear’ by bunching them up in their fists)
Shake them shake them shake them (shake)
Shake them shake them shake them (shake)
’til they POP, ’til they POP (Toss scarves up into the air)

Breathplay: Dragon Breath
Put your hands under your chin, breathe in, now breathe out like a fire-breathing dragon! Roar!

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
(Tune: Frère Jacques)
Goodbye friends, goodbye friends
Sing this tune, sing this tune,
It’s time to wave goodbye,
it’s time to wave goodbye
See you soon, see you soon.

Goodbye friends, goodbye friends
Close your eyes, close your eyes
Take a deep breathe in… (breathe in instead of repeating this line)
Now breathe out goodbye… (breathe out instead of repeating this line)
