Sing (To the tune of "If you’re happy and you know it")

If you want to hear a story, clap your hands
If you want to hear a story, clap your hands
If you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, clap your hands.

More verses: Stomp your feet, spin around, do all three, sit right down.

Action Rhyme Song- This Little Worm  (To tune of "This Old Man")

This little worm, wiggly worm (wiggle pointer finger)
He goes creeping through the dirt (creep him along opposite forearm)
With a squirm and a squiggle and a dig, dig, dig (wiggle body, then dig with hands)
Hide from the robin, oh so big! (hide pointer finger in fist, then open hands to show “big”)

Action Song-Wiggle Worm (Tune of "Did You Ever See a Lassie?"/ “The More We Get Together”)

Did you ever see a wiggle worm,
A wiggle worm, a wiggle worm?
Did you ever see a wiggle worm
Move this way and that?
Move this way and that way,
Move this way and that way.
Did you ever see a wiggle worm
Move this way and that?

Action Rhyme- Slowly, Slowly

Slowly, slowly, very slowly (make fist with thumb sticking out for snail and walk up arm to shoulder)
creeps the garden snail.
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (walk fist back up arm again)
up the garden rail.
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (run fingers up arm to shoulder)
runs the little mouse.
Quickly, quickly very quickly (run fingers up other arm to shoulder)
into his little house.
