Action Rhyme: I Can

I can touch my chin,
My cheek,
My chair.

I can touch my head,
My heels,
My hair.

I can touch my knees,
My neck,
My nose.
Then I can dip down and touch my toes.

Fingerplay: Red Balloon

I had a little red balloon
And I blew, and I blew, and I blew.
And it grew, and it grew, and it grew.
I tossed it up in the air,
And didn’t let it drop.
I bounced it on the ground,
And it went “Pop!”

 Rhyme: Crayon Box

I have a crayon, I’ll give it to you.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of blue.
I have a crayon, a lovely little fellow.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of yellow.
I have a crayon, it’s here on my head.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of red.
I have a crayon, we can draw a circle.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of purple.
I have a crayon, what do I see?
Here is my crayon, an orange one for me.
I have a crayon, the best ever seen.
Here is my crayon, my crayon of green
