This Little Piggy
This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went...
Wee wee wee all the way home
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
I'm A Little Airplane Story
I'm a little airplane,
(Actions: Raise arms at sides to shoulder height)
Now watch me fly!
(Actions: Spin one arms in front of them as if it were a propeller)
Here are my instruments
From down low to up high.
(Actions: With the other arm reach from the ground to above their heads)
First I get revved up.
(Actions: Make engine like noises while continuing to spin arms)
Then I can fly,
(Actions: Raise arms to shoulder height)
Lifting off the runway
(Actions: Start walking forward)
Up into the sky!
(Actions: Go up on tiptoes and move forward. Circle for a while before returning to original position)
