Song: Hickory Dickory Dock

Rhyme: Round about, round about, goes the wee house (draw circle)
Up a bit, up a bit, in a wee house (tickle chin)

Rhyme: (with mice in box puppet)
Where are the baby mice? Squeak, squeak, squeak,
I cannot see them peek, peek, peek,
Here they come out of their hole,
One, two, three, and that is all!

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: 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: Lunch by Denise Fleming

Rhyme: Here comes a little mouse, squeak, squeak, squeak,
He’s tiny and soft and has pink little feet (tickle toes)
He runs up your leg, then under your arm
Ticklety, ticklety (tickle all over)
But he means you no harm.

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)
