Flannel: Little Ball, Big Ball
A little ball, a bigger ball, a great big ball I see.
Can you count the green balls? One, two, three.
Repeat for blue and orange.
Add the red ball and say:
Little balls, big balls, another ball I see.
Can you count all the balls? 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10!

Song: “This is the Way We…”
This is the way we bounce the ball, bounce the ball, bounce the ball,
This is the way we bounce the ball,
when we play basketball.
When we do ballet.
Kick the ball…
When we play soccer.
Throw the ball…
When we play football.
Swing the bat…
When we play baseball.
