Sing A Song

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Sing The Itsy Bitsy Spider with your
child. Do the hand motions. Talk about how spiders spin webs.

The itsy bitsy spider
Went up the water spout
(‘Climb’ up arm)
Down came the rain
(Wiggle fingers down from head to waist)
And washed the spider out
(Throw arms to sides)
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
(Raise hands above head, make circle for sun)
And the itsy bitsy spider
Went up the spout again.

What Do You Suppose?

What do you suppose?
a bee sat on my nose!
(Put finger on nose)
Then what do you think?
He gave me a wink
And said “I beg your pardon,
I thought you were a garden!”
(Open your hands in apology)
