Action Rhyme Five Little Mice
Five little mice on the pantry floor,
(run fingers on table top)

This little mouse peeked behind the door,
(wiggle thumb)

This little mouse nibbled at the cake,
(wiggle pointer finger)

This little mouse did not make a sound,
(wiggle middle finger)

This little mouse took a bite of cheese,
(wiggle ring finger)

This little mouse heard the kitten sneeze,
(wiggle little finger)

“Ah-choo,” sneezed the kitten
(sneeze)

And “squeak!” they cried
(Make fingers “jump”)

As the found a hole and ran inside.
(hide hand behind back)

Pizza, pizza, pizza with cheese!
Pizza, pizza, pizza with cheese!

You knead it, you knead it, knead it, knead it. Singing…
Next you take the dough and you throw it,
You catch it, you throw it up high, singing….Then you take the sauce and you spread it,
You spread it, you spread it on the pizza, singing….

Then you take the cheese and you sprinkle it,
You sprinkle it, you sprinkle it on the pizza, singing….

Next you take the toppings and you plunk ’em,

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.

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
