Songs & Motions

Old MacDonald (of course!)

Over in the Barnyard (to the tune of "Down by the station")

Over in the barnyard, early in the morning
See the little baby (pigs/chicks/cows/other animals of your choice) all in a row
See the busy farmer scattering their breakfast
Gulp gulp, snort snort (or peck peck, cheep cheep or moo moo moo moo)
Off they go!

Ten Fluffy Chickens

Five eggs and five eggs (hold up each hand)
That makes ten (wiggle fingers)
Sitting on top is mother hen (put one fist on top of the other)
Cackle, cackle, cackle (Clap hands three times)
What do I see? (Open hands wide)
Ten fluffy chickens, looking at me (hold up ten fingers, then make "glasses" in front of eyes)
