|Action Rhyme||I Wiggle
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.Source: Colorado Libraries for Literacy

Second rhyme we do:

|Action Song||Crawly Creepy Little Mouse
Crawly creepy little mouse, (tiptoe fingers up leg)
From the barn in the house.
In the pantry under the shelf! (tiptoe fingers up to chin)
Found some cheese and helped himself.
Nibble nibble nibble nibble! (tickle)
|Dance Song||Say Cheese! (Let’s Take a Picture)|
|Traditional Song||ABC, Count to 10|
My source of inspiration came from Magic Sewing Hands felt craft. However, instead of using felt, I used cardboard and paper. I loved that this craft worked on eye and hand coordination.
