Opening song

Book: Up, Down, and Around by Katherine Ayres, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott


Rhyme: One arm goes up, one arm goes down, one arm goes up and down.
Two arms go up…
One leg goes up…
Two legs go up…

Song: “In My Garden” – Raffi: One Light, One Sun

one light one sun

Song: (Tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)
I can make my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap, clap, clap
Clap, clap, clap
I can make my hands go clap, clap, clap
They’re a part of me.

I can make my feet go stomp, stomp, stomp, etc…
I can make my hand wave bye, bye, bye…

Book: Who’s in the Garden by Phillis Gershator, illustrated by Jill McDonald

whos in the garden

Rhyme: I’m a little beetle
And I wiggle all day (wiggle baby)
If you get too close to me,
I’ll FLY away! (lift baby)

I’m a little bumblebee…
I’m a little ladybug…

Rhyme: Round and round the garden (draw circle on back or hand)
The little bunny goes
Hippity-hop, hippity-hop (bounce fingers up arm)
I’m gonna get your nose! (tickle nose)

Rhyme: The little clock goes tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock (swing baby side to side)
The big clock goes ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong (swing back front to back)
