Little Miss Muffet
Little Miss Muffet
(run thumb down side of face DSL for girl)
Sat on a tuffet,
(put one fist on top of other)
Eating her curds and whey.
(pretend to eat)
Along came a spider,
(put one hand over the other
and lock little fingers)
And sat down beside her
(move hands down, wiggle fingers)
And frightened Miss Muffet away!
(hide hands behind back)

Five little fishies swimming in a pool,

(five fingers up, peer out under hand)
Fisherman’s boat comes,
(fingers form a V and move away from body)
Line goes ker-splash,
(pantomime throwing fishing line)
Away the five little fishies dash.
(wiggle five fingers away)
I have ten little fingers,
And they all belong to me.
(hold hands out in front)
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
(make a fist)
I can open them up wide
(spread fingers out)
I can put them together.
(clasp hands together)
I can make them all hide.
(put hands behind back)
I can make them jump high.
(raise hands over head)
I can make them jump low.
(lower hands to knees)
I can fold them like this
and hold them just so.
(fold hands in lap)
One Little Astronaut
Five, four, three, two, one, zero!
Blast off! Went our little hero.
(start with five fingers up;
fold them down one at a time)
The little astronaut
Blasted off the world.
(with hands together quickly
thrust them overhead)
Once in orbit, he twirled;
(rotate body around)
He circled to the left,
And he circled to the right.
Then he was so dizzy
That he slept all night
(lay cheek on open palm)
