Roly Poly Song

This is a favourite in class, so most children should be familiar with the tune and actions

 

Rotating hand over hand as in the song ‘Wind the bobbin up’ you can slowly sing.

Ro … ly … po … ly … ever … so … slowly, Ro … ly … po … ly … ever … so … slowly, (making sure your children are rotating their hands slowly as well...then y)ou can start to sing faster and rotating your hands faster as you sing

Ro … ly … poly faster. (Increase the speed of the action as you increase the speed of the rhyme.) keep repeating until the children are whizzing their hands around and likely in a fit of giggles. When they are familiar with the rhyme it is fun to really drag out the slowly before you let them go fast. 

 

 

Now add in new verses, such as: Stamp … your … feet … ever … so … slowly Stamp … your feet faster. Say hello ever so quietly, Say hello louder...  Ask the children to suggest sounds and movements to be incorporated into the song.
