This Is Big
This is big, big, big
This is small, small, small
This is short, short, short
This is tall, tall, tall
This is fast, fast, fast
This is slow, slow, slow
This is yes, yes, yes
This is no, no, no

So Big!
How big is baby?
So big! (stretch baby’s arms wide)
How small is baby?
So small! (bring baby’s hands close together)
How sweet is baby?
So sweet! (give baby snuggles and kisses)

Green Says Go
Green says go!
Go! Go! Go!
Yellow says slow.
Slow.  Slow.  Slow.
And red says stop!
Go, go, go!
Slow, slow, slow.
And stop!

Opposites Chant
I say fast and you say…. SLOW!
Fast! Slow! Fast! Slow!
I say up and you say….DOWN!
Up! Down! Up! Down!
I say happy and you say… SAD!
Happy! Sad! Happy! Sad!
I say over and you say… UNDER!
Over! Under! Over! Under!

Two Little Blackbirds
Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill.
Come back Jack, come back Jill.

Verses: Low and High
Fast and Slow
Early and Late

Parachute Song
If you’re happy and you know it, lift it high!
If you’re happy and you know it, shake it fast!
If you’re happy and you know it, shake it slow!
If you’re happy and you know it, shake it low!

Go in and Out the Window

Go in and out the window,
Go in and out the window,
Go in and out the window,
As we have done before.

Go up and down the staircase . . .
Go round and round the village . . .
A Little Ball
A little ball,
(form circle with thumb and finger)
A bigger ball,
(form circle with hands)
A great big ball I see.
(form circle with arms)
Now let’s count them.
Are you ready?
One,(form circle with arms)
Two, (form circle with hands)
Three! (form circle with thumb and finger)

We hope to see you at storytime!
