Week of December 1 – Winter Animals

Freeze Game

Rhymes

Open, Shut Them
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap!
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Lay them in your lap, lap lap.
Creep them crawl them , creep them crawl them
Right up to your chin, chin chin
Open up your little mouth
But do not let them in!

I have ten little fingers and they all belong to me.
I can make them do things, would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight, I can open them wide.
I can put them together, I can make them hide.
I can make them jump high, I can make them jump low.
I can rolly, rolly, them around and fold them just so.
