Hey, how about you?

I’m in the mood for singing

I’m in the mood for that today

Hey, hey, what do you say

I’m in the mood for that.

Fingerplay: Here’s A Ball
Here’s a little ball.
(Make a small with your thumb and index finger.)
And here’s a bigger ball.
(Make a bigger ball using both thumbs and both index fingers.)
And a great big ball, I see.
(Make a ball by holding your arms up over your head and touching your fingers together.)
Shall we count them?
Are you ready?
One, Two, Three
(make all three balls in succession)
