Rags the Dog
I have a dog and his name is Rags. (point to self
He eats so much that his tummy sags! (rub tummy)
His ears go flip flop and his tail wig-wags! (wiggle hands on each side of head, swing arm back and forth for tail.)
And when he walks he goes zig-zag! (wiggle hips)
Refrain: say 3 times
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig-zag! (do motions for ears, tail, then wiggle hips for zig-zag)
I love Rags and he loves me! Yeah!

Wiggler
I've got a dog as thin as a rail (children are sitting, palms of their hands in front, facing each other, close together)
He's got fleas all over his tail (wiggle fingers)
Every time his tail goes up (raise hands while wiggling fingers)
The fleas on the bottom all hop to the top (hands to floor, stand up, hands stretch up high)

Wiggler
(Leader calls out each line and the audience repeats it)

Flea.
Flea fly.
Flea fly mosquito.
Oh, no no no more mosquitoes.
Itchy itchy, scratchy scratchy, oh, I got one down my backy.
Beat that big bad bug with the bug spray.
SSSSSsssssssssss!

Miscellaneous Dog Activities










All About Me Songs/Fingerplays

I Can

I can be anything
I can do anything
I can think anything
Big or Tall or
High or low
Wide or narrow
Fast or slow
Because I can and
I want to!

Hands
Hands are for loving,
Hands are for loving,
Hands are not for pushing or shoving!

Wave your hands,
Say hello and good-bye
Don't use your hands to make someone cry!

Hands are for loving,
Hands are for loving
Hands are not for pushing or shoving!

You have a left hand
and you have a right
Don't use your hands
To get in a fight.

Hands are for loving,
Hands are for loving.
Hands are not for pushing or shoving.

I'm Glad I'm Me
No one looks the way I do!
I have noticed that it's true!
No one walks the way I walk!
No one talks the way I talk!
No one plays the way I play.
No one says the things I say!
I AM SPECIAL...I AM ME!
There's no one in the world like ME!
My, but I am glad I'm me!

I Believe
I believe in myself and
my ability to do my best for this.
I will think.

I will read
I will write
I will do my best and not waste this day.
For this day will not come anymore.
Success begins with ME!

A short line at the top
A long line to connect each side
A rectangle you've got!

And turn yourself around,
That's what it's all about.

Shapes What About You
I am a circle
Here's what I can do.
I can roll around.
How about you?

I am a square
So perfectly true.
I am the same length on four sides.
How about you?

I am a rectangle
With four sides too!
But I can be short or tall.
What about you?

I am a triangle
With only three sides.
But I can stand on anyone.
How about you?

It's a Rectangle
(tune:  B-I-N-G-O)
There is a shape that has four sides,
But it is not a square...No!
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
It is not like a square....No!

Two sides are long; two sides are short.
They are not the same...No!
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
The sides are not the same...No!
(Hold up a square when mentioned and then hold up rectangle)
