    Tiny Tim
    I had a little turtle. His name was Tiny Tim.
    I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.
    He drank up all the water. He ate up all the soap.
    Now he's at home sick in bed with bubbles in his throat.
    Bubble bubble bubble, bubble bubble POP!
    Bubble bubble bubble, bubble bubble POP!

    There are fun hand movements to accompany the words, starting with the ASL sign for turtle. Beforehand, the kids had fun guessing what animal the sign represented.

    Project—Shaving Cream and Watercolors:

     

    We used liquid watercolors for this project. Each child had his/her own dropper and a pan of shaving cream. Most chose to make an impression of their creation, but everyone had fun experimenting with the colors and shaving cream!

    Snowflake Dance
    Snowflakes, snowflakes all around. In the air and on the ground.
    Some are big and some are small. Roll them into a snowball.
    When the sun comes out to play, all the snowflakes melt away!

    Project—My Circle/My Square:
    Taking inspiration from Not a Stick, the kids used precut circles and squares to create their own unique pictures. Here is one example:
