Ten Fat Peas – Fingerplays by Joanna Cole
Ten fat peas in a peapod pressed. (hold up fists facing body)
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest (put up fingers as you count)
They grew and grew and did not stop (lift hands/arms up as they grow)
Until one day the pod went POP! (clap hands over head)

Rig a Jig Jig – As I Was Walking Down the Street – “101 Rhythm Instrument Activities” by Connors pg. 83
use this traditional song/tune for instrument exploration.
All children seated in a circle, put several instruments in the middle of the circle. As we sing, each child takes a turn to pick an instrument:
As I was walking down the street, (etc.) a musician friend I chanced to meet, hi-ho, hi-ho, hi-ho. A rig a jig jig and away we go, away we go, away we go, a rig a jig jig and away we go, hi-ho, hi-ho, hi-ho.
(repeat until everyone has an instrument)
