I said I would post song lyrics to the songs I sang today so I'm posting them here for now until I find a more permanent place on the site for them!
Hello, Hello, Hello and How are you?
I’m fine, I’m fine and I hope that you are to.
Now everybody clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands
Now everybody clap your hands, come on and clap with me.
-repeat using different actions i.e-stomp your feet, wave hello, tap your knees.

1. Draw a circle for her head. Only draw the body part that I have said. Who?
2. She had two hairs on her head. One was Curly and the other was dead. Who?
3. She had two eyes in her head. She goes both ways when she’s looking ahead. Who?
4. She had one ear on each side. One was narrow and the other was wide. Who?
5. She had a nose on her face. It wasn’t very pretty but it took a lot of space. Who?
6. She had two teeth in her mouth. One pointed north and the other pointed south. Who?
7. She had a neck like a ten foot pole. And right in the middle was a great big mole. Who?
8. She had two arms long as a door. And when she walked they touched the floor.
9. She had two hands with ten fingers. Those long skinny things were real humdingers. Who?
10. She had a tummy as round as a ball. She bounced right back when she took a fall. Who?
11. She had two legs shaped like and s. Oh my goodness, they were a mess. Who?
12. She had two feet as flat as a mat. Oh I wonder how they got like that. Who?
13. This is the story that has been told about mac-a-lena and her heart of gold.

Walking, I’m just walking along,

I’m just singing my swaying song,
I’m just swaying along.
