Themed Rhymes

THE ITSY BITSY MONKEY – to the tune of Eensie Weensie Spider
The itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the coconut tree [have hands climb]
Down came a coconut that bopped him on the knee [drop fist from over head to hit yourself on the knee]
Along came his Mama, who hugged away the pain [hug yourself]
Then the itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the tree again [climb hands again having kids stretch as high as they can reach]


Roar like a lion, growl like a bear,
Give Mum a hug, show her you care.
Hop like a bunny, flap like a bird,
Quiet as a mouse now . . .Don’t say a word.

There’s something in my pocket,
Could it be a moose?
Could it be a train with a bell and a caboose?
Could it be a snake or some sticky glue?
Right here in my pocket is a HUG from me to you!

I can hug, hug, hug,
I can hop, hop, hop,
I can kiss, kiss kiss,
I can stop, stop, stop.
I can nod my head yes,
And I can shake my head no,
And I can sit down very low.
