Opening Song

Well Hello Everybody, Can You Touch Your Nose

Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,
Touch your nose, touch your nose?
Well hello everybody, can you touch your nose,
touch your nose?

Well hello everybody can you touch your toes,
touch your toes, touch your toes?
Well hello everybody, can you touch your toes,
touch your toes?

Well hello everybody, can you rub your tummy,
rub your tummy, rub your tummy?
Well hello everybody, can you rub your tummy,
rub your tummy?

Flannel

Mustache Flannel

There once lived a man named Mr. Lou,
He had a mustache that grew, and GREW!
By Monday, it was as tiny as his nose,
By Tuesday, on and on it grows!
By Wednesday, it stretched as far as his ears!
By Thursday, it looked as if it had grown for years.
But on Friday Mr. Lou caught the flu…
ACHOOOO!
and off went the mustache—it flew and FLEW!

I did something different with this flannel. Instead of making a face, I just made flannel mustaches that I put up to my face.

Traditional Rhymes

This is Big Big Big

This is big big big
This is small small small
This is short short short
This is tall tall tall
This is fast fast fast
This is slow slow slow
This is yes yes yes
This is no no no

Clap, Clap, Clap Your hands

Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them now with me
Clap your hands, let me see
Clap your hands with me

Beep, beep, beep your nose
Touch, touch, touch your shoulders
Tap, tap, tap your knees
Shake, shake, shake your feet

Fuzzy Wuzzy

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy.
Was he?

Action Rhymes

Ten Little Mustaches (I used mustaches on sticks and slowly added them with each phrase)
Tune: Ten Little Indian

One little, two little, three little mustaches
Four little, five little, six little mustaches
Seven little, eight little, nine little mustaches
Ten little mustaches under your nose

Hands on Shoulders

Hands on shoulders, hands on knees,
Hands behind you, if you please.
Touch your hair,
Now your toes.
Hands up high in the air,
Down at your sides, now touch your hair.
Hands up high, as before.
Now Clap your hands, one, two, three, four!

A fellow blogger did something similar to this. If I recall correctly, we decided to cut out the center so the kids could hold it up to their face.

Closing Goodbye Song

The Goodbye Train is Leaving
Oh the goodbye train is leaving see you soon, toot, toot.
Oh the goodbye train is leaving see you soon, toot, toot.
Oh the goodbye train is leaving, the goodbye train is leaving
Oh the goodbye train is leaving see you soon, toot, toot

Observations

The kids LOVED the flannel especially when I acted like I was sneezing and had the flannel fly at them. The No Haircut Today was a meh read. However, the kids got a kick out of the Book-O-Beards. I actually had several parents who wanted to know who wrote it.
