|Finger Rhyme||Where Is Big Cat (Tune: Where is Thumbkin)|
Before starting I introduce the kids to Big Cat (my thumbs) and Little Cat (my pinkies). The cats give a little meow and the kids show me their Big Cat and Little Cat. Where is big cat, where is big cat (hide thumbs)
Here I am, here I am (bring thumbs out)
How are you today cat (wiggle one thumb)
Very well I thank you (wiggle other thumb)
Meow, meow, meow (put thumbs behind back)
Meow, meow, meow
|Action Rhyme||Fish, Fish |
Tune: Skip to my Lou
Fish, fish, swim up high.
Fish, fish, swim down low.
Fish, fish, swim so fast.
Fish, fish, swim so slow.
|Action Rhyme||Some Dogs Bark (make appropriate noises) |
Some Dogs Bark.
Some dogs growl.
Some dogs yip.
Some dogs howl.
And some dogs just wag their tail. (wiggle bottom)
