Songs / Action Rhymes

“Grey Squirrel Song”
(I only sang the first verse of the linked song, and I sang it faster.)

Two  Little Feet Go Tap (from Sunflower Storytime)
Two little feet go tap, tap, tap,   (tap feet)
Two little hands go clap, clap, clap.  (clap hands)
A quick little leap up from my chair,   (stand up)
Two little arms reach high in the air.   (stretch arms)
Two little feet go jump, jump, jump,   (jump)
Two little fists go thump, thump, thump.   (pound fists)
One little body goes round and round,   (twirl around)
And one little child sits quietly down.   (sit down)

Head Shoulders Knees and Toes

Activities

1. Watercolor leaves – I bought liquid watercolors and Lovely Liquid Watercolor Leaves so the children could make fall leaves by using a pipette to squirt red, yellow, and orange colors onto the paper.
