List the songs sung so far and ask children to decide which song they might choose for walking by the graveyard, picking up toys, baby-sitting little brother/sister, including large group of children.


Children perform Old Roger  with motions to dramatize event, then add dramatization of Big Fraid. Look for pantomime and improvisation of events. As children identify songs and games, look for appropriately matching songs with situations (e.g. Churning – to help time pass when working; or I'm Tall, I'm Small for playing with others, Three Little Puppies  for toddlers and young children).
