Reach for the ceiling
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your elbows, wiggle your nose.

Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

Scarf Song: We Wave Our Scarves Together

We wave them up high
We wave them down low

We throw them up high
We throw them down low
We throw them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do

Movement Rhyme: Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them all around.
Clap them loud, then clap them soft
Now don’t make a sound.

Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet
Stamp them all around.
Stamp them loud, then stamp them soft
Now don’t make a sound.

Sit, sit, sit back down
Sit back on the ground.
Open your arms, now tuck them in
Now don’t make a sound.

And that color is – Green!
