Family

This is a family
(hold up one hand, fingers spread)
Let’s count them and see,
How many there are,
And who they can be.
(count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

This is the mother
(touch pointer finger)
Who loves everyone,

And this is the father
(touch big finger)
Who is lots of fun.

This is my sister
(touch ring finger)
She helps and she plays,

And this is the baby
(touch little finger)
He’s growing each day.

But who is this one?
(touch thumb)
He’s out there alone,

Why it’s Jackie, the dog,
And he’s chewing a bone.
(wiggle thumb.)
