Action Rhyme: “Little Birds”
Little birds, little birds, jump up and down
Little birds, little birds, don’t make a sound
Little birds, little birds, tip-toe to me
Little birds, little birds, bend your knees
Little birds, little birds, peep, peep, peep
Little birds, little birds, sleep, sleep, sleep
Little birds, little birds, fly to the leaves
Little birds, little birds, sit down please

Rhyme: Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away, Jack! And fly away, Jill!
Come back, Jack! And come back, Jill!
Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud
One named Soft and one named LOUD . . .
Two little blackbirds flying in the sky
One named Low and one named High. . .
Two little blackbirds sitting on a stick
One named Slow and one named Quick. . .
