Song: “The Little Bird” – Georgiana Stewart: Nursery Rhyme Time

Rhyme: This is big, big, big  Hold arms out to side
This is small small small Cup hands together
This is short short short Hold hands with palms facing each other
This is tall tall tall Reach one hand above head
This is fast fast fast Circle fists quickly
This is slow slow slow Circle fists slowly
This is yes yes yes Nod
This is no no no Shake head

Mama’s little baby loves bouncin’, bouncin’
Mama’s little baby loves bouncin’ round.

Lean to the left, lean to the right,
Now hug that baby nice and tight.
Lean to the left, lean to the right,
Now hug that baby nice and tight.

Rhyme: You put the oil in the pot and you let it get hot,
You put the popcorn in and you start to grin,
