Apple puppet
Look at the apple I have found
So round and rosy on the ground
We will wash it and cut it in two
Half for me and half for you

As I Was Walking Down the Street
As I was walking down the street,
A very good friend I chanced to meet
We clapped our hands, and waved up high
We said hello, and then goodbye

Friend of Mine
(Tune: " Mary Had a Little Lamb")

Will you meet a friend of mine?
Friend of mine? Friend of mine?
Will you meet a friend of mine?
This is my friend ….
(Animal faces flannels – have kids name the animal)

One Little Friend Went Out to Play
(Tune: "Elephant on a Spiderweb")

One little friend went out to play
On a bright and sunny day
He had such enormous fund
That he called for another friend to come

(count up to five, and then end with: "But the sun went down and the friends went home")

A Rig-a-Jig-Jig
As I was walking down the street,
A very good friend I chanced to meet,
A rig-a-jig-jig, and away we go,
Hi-ho, hi-ho, ho-ho-ho!
(Animal patterns – have kids name animals, in succession)
