Rhyme/dance: Dancing Sheep

Shhh!  It’s time to go to sleep (put finger to mouth, pretend to sleep)
But into my bedroom one sheep creeps. (creep fingers)
“Don’t go to bed,” the one sheep said.
“I would rather dance instead!”

Soon he was…  (draw these words out)
Dancing on the ceiling! (move hands above head in “dancing” motion)
He was dancing on the floor! (move hands on floor as mentioned above)
He was dancing on the window! (move hands to one side)
He was dancing on the door! (move hands to other side)

He kept on…Dancing on the ceiling! (sing faster)
He was dancing on the floor!
He was dancing on the window!
He was dancing on the door!
(repeat several times getting faster each time through)

“Stop that dancing, silly sheep.
It is time to go to sleep!”
Soon the sheep lay on the floor.
Soon the sheep began to snore.

So I started …  (draw these words out)
Dancing on the ceiling!
I was dancing on the floor!
I was dancing on the window!
I was dancing on the door!
