Two Little Boat (Bounce Rhyme)

All is calm as calm can be, Gently the wind begins to blow.

Loudly the wind begins to shout.

Two little boats are tossed about. (bounce fast)

Gone is the wind, the storm, the rain, two little boats sail on again.

I Am a Choo Choo Train (Action rhyme)

I’m a little choo choo train
Chugging down the track
First I move forward, Then I move back!
Now my bell is ringing
Hear my whistle blow
What a lot of noise I make, everywhere I go!

The Airplane  (Rhyme)

The airplane has great big wings
Its propeller spins around and sings, “Vvvvvv!” 
The airplane goes up
The airplane goes down
The airplane flies high  
Over the town!

Bounce and Bounce and Bounce and Stop.

Bounce and Bounce and Bounce and Stop.

Now bounce that baby right up to the top! (lift baby up)

-Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (Fingerplay)

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

How I wonder what you are.
