You Can Do It! Totally Tots

Our Totally Tots groups were much smaller this week, but still had lots of energy, specially today's group.  I often wonder if it is the timing and the kids need lunch and nap, I am tinker with the timing for the winter/spring sessions.  My theme today was "You Can Do It" stretching it a bit as some of them are still quite young.  We read

Opening Song
Everybody say one, story time has just began
Everybody say two, shake your shoulders show your shoes
Everybody say three, listen very carefully
Everybody say four, and put your bottoms on the floor

A wiggle, wiggle here
A wiggle, wiggle there.
Wiggle your hands up in the air
Wiggle our shoulders and wiggle your hips,
Wiggle your knees and move your lips,
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle
And wiggle and bend
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,
And this is the end!

We clap our hands like this,
with all our friends.
