Roly poly, roly poly OUT, OUT, OUT

Animals Song with Puppets:  "Down Grandpa's Farm" by Raffi" using these signs:

Chicken - baby sign language
Sheep - baby sign language
Cow - baby sign language
Dog - baby sign language
Horse - baby sign language
Book: If You're Happy and You Know It by Jane Cabrera

Bounce Rhymes and Fingerplays:

Going Up and Down in an Elevator (to the tune of "Bouncing Up and Down in My Little Red Wagon")
Going up and down in an elevator X3 (bounce)
First floor (lift baby)
Second floor (lift baby higher)
Third floor (lift baby higher)

Charlie Chaplin Went to France:
(My 5 month old goes nuts over this one)

Charlie Chaplin went to France
To teach the babies how to dance
First they did the Ramba
Then they did the kicks
Then they did the Samba
Then they did the splits, the splits, the splits

There Was a Little Turtle 

There was a little turtle  (make fist, thumb out)
who lived inside a box (cover fist with other hand)
He swam in the water (paddle)
And he climbed on the rocks (walk fingers up baby's arm)
He snapped at a mosquito (snap)
He snapped at a flea (snap)
He snapped at a minnow (snap)
And he snapped at me (snap)

He caught the mosquito (snap)
He caught the flea (snap)
He caught the minnow (snap)
But.... he didn't catch me! (wave finger side to side)

Robbie Rabbit:

Robbie Rabbit is so fat, fat, fat (tickle belly)
His soft little paws go pat, pat, pat (clap hands)
His soft little ears go flop, flop, flop (flop "ears")
And when Robbie runs he goes hop, hop, hop (lift baby up)

We always ends with shakers (or every now and again something a little different) and BUBBLES!
