Warm up your bodies and minds with Ms Susan as we play Snow Snail, Fast Mouse together!
Slow Snail, Fast Mouse (To the tune of Oh My Darling Clementine)
Creeps the garden snail
Up the yellow rail
Runs the little squeaky mouse
Quickly quickly very quickly
Right inside his little house!
Sing This is Big with Ms. Alison and Mr. Joe. Can you say HELLOOOOOOOOO, MR. JOE?!
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
Make an opposites obstacle course around your house! Go OVER a chair and UNDER a table and to the RIGHT and then the LEFT...
Use painter's tape to help your kids follow the path.
AGE IT UP
If you have kids who are a little older, try playing Opposites Simon Says!
Simon says... sit still (wiggle!),
Simon says... be loud (be quiet!), etc.
This is surprisingly hard and can be really funny!
