Action Rhyme- How Do You Say Hi?

(Do actions as they are said.)

Hey! Hi! Howdy! Yo!

There are many ways to say hello!

Wave your hand. Nod your head.

Smile big or wink instead.

Blow a kiss. Tip your hat.

Shake your hands. Give a pat.

Of all the ways to say hello,

Here’s the way I like to go…HELLO!

Rhyme-Train to Nowhere by Douglas Florian

We’re taking a train to nowhere.

We’re boarding at never o’clock.

We packed up our bags full of nothing.

No shirts and no skirts and no socks.

There’s nowhere that we aren’t going.

There’s no place that we will not pass.

We’re taking a train to nowhere—

And we’re going nowhere fast.


A House That Once Was by Julie Fogliano (Roaring Brook Press)

Rhyming Song-Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream!


Row, row, row your boat

Gently to the shore.

And if you see a lion,

Don’t forget to roar! ROAR!


Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream,

And if you see an alligator,

Don’t forget to scream! AAAAAHHHH!


A River by Marc Martin (Chronicle Books)
