Sing a Song

Fast and Slowly

Be sure to try the actions while chanting this poem

Clap, clap, clap your hands
As slowly as you can.
Clap, clap, clap your hands
As quickly as you can.

Now try these actions fast and slowly.

Shake, shake, shake your hands…
Roll, roll, roll your hands…
Rub, rub, rub your hands…
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle your fingers…
Pound, pound, pound your fists…
Kick, kick, kick your feet…
