    Five Fat Peas
    Five fat peas in a pea pod pressed. [Wrap one hand around the other fist.]
    One grew, two grew, and so did all the rest. [Unfurl fingers, one by one.]
    Well, they grew, and they grew, and they did not stop. [Motion outward with hands.]
    And they grew and they grew, ‘til they finally popped! [Motion outward with hands, then clap.]

    The rain begins to fall...
    The plants grow big and tall...
