Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you, how are you,
Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you today?
Come on everybody and clap your hands….

Who’s that, tapping at my window,
Who’s that, knocking at my door?
Abby, knocking at my window,
Michael, knocking at my door.

Bread and butter, Marmalade and Jam

Let's say hello as quiet as we can
(whisper: hello)
...
loud as we can
...slow as we can
...fast as we can
...high as we can
...low as we can
...nice as we can

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream
Row, row, row your boat down the jungle stream
If you see a tiger Don’t forget to scream!

Row, row, row the boat, Gently to the shore.
If you see a lion, don't forget to roar.
Row, row, row your boat Gently down the river
If you see a grizzly bear don’t forget to shiver!

Drive, drive, drive your car gently down the street
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a treat!

Here we go Santa Maloney
Here we go Santa Maloney
Here we go Santa Maloney
As we go round about
Tap your sticks before you
Tap your sticks before you
Tap your sticks before you
As we go round about
Tap your sticks behind you …
Tap your sticks down low …
Tap your sticks up high …

The sticks on the bus go tap, tap, tap …
pound pound pound …
hammer hammer hammer …
roll roll roll ...
scrape scrape scrape

If you're happy and you know it, tap your sticks
If you're happy and you know it, tap your sticks (2x)
If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it 
If you're happy and you know it, tap your sticks 

You put your paw in,
You put your paw out,
You put your paw in
And you shake it all about
You put your other paw in,
You put your other paw out,
You put your other paw in
And you shake it all about
The animals are dancing at the zoo
And they’ve invited you!

The giraffe is as tall as tall can be
He eats the leaves right off the tree
His neck is long, his legs are too;
And he can run faster than me or you!

Math Moment! (From Bedtimemath.org) tigerjap
Jeans are just blue denim cloth with some pockets sewn on. But at the Kamine Zoo in Japan, animals have helped MAKE jeans. The zoo took big rubber tires — a favorite toy of big animals like lions and bears — and wrapped them up in blue denim. Then they let the animals claw and chew away at them. Tigers tended to work alone; bears worked in pairs, and lions piled on in groups. When they were done chewing and scratching, the zookeepers rescued the torn, shredded cloth and sewed it into jeans. They sold the jeans to make money for the zoo.
As you see in this video, (http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2014/07/10/330443249/jeans-designed-by-lions-and-tigers-to-benefit-japanese-zoo) the claw marks make you look like you rolled around in the lion’s den yourself! If lions, tigers and bears worked on these jeans, how many types of animals helped?

 

Row boat, row boat,
Go so slow …

When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet
When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet
When the parachute is high
And floats up in the sky
When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet. ...
bend your knees ...
shake your head ...
shout hooray

Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
As we have done before
Go in and out the circle…
Go up and down the circle…
A turkey ran away Before Thanksgiving Day
“For they will make a feast of me If I should stay.”
A pumpkin ran away
Before Thanksgiving Day
“For they will make a pie of me
If I should stay.”
A potato ran away
Before Thanksgiving Day 
“For they will make a feast of me if I should stay.”

Here sits a monkey in the chair, chair, chair wild about us
He lost all the true loves he had last year
So rise upon your feet
And greet the first you meet
The happiest one I know

Mighty pretty motion
Toodala
Toodala, Toodala
Mighty pretty motion,
Toodala,
Toodala la lady.
Rock old Soney,
Toodala . . .
Clap your hands . . .
Stamp your feet . . .
