Explore “on” and “over”
Props: a scarf for each participant
Tune: “The Farmer in the Dell”
The scarf is on my arm. The scarf is on my arm. Hi, hoe, the derry-oh the scarf is on my arm.
The scarf is over my head. The scarf is over my head. Hi, hoe, the derry-oh the scarf is over my head.
Add other verses. You can include actions such as hopping over the scarf.
Classic “O” Songs
“The Little Brown Owl” is modified from a share on No Time for Flashcards. Rather than have the “owls go la-di-da”, we had the them “dance hooty- hooty-hoot.”
“Octopus Stew” is a fun Pinterest find. Depending on your group, you could insert other “o” items into the song.
