Ten Little Children

(tune: “Ten Little Indians)
 One little, two little, three little children (count on fingers)
Four little, five little, six little children
Seven little, eight little, nine little children
Ten little children run quick, quick, quick! (run around room in a circle)
Quickly, quickly, very quickly, (continue running)
Quickly, quickly, very quickly,
Quickly, quickly, very quickly,
All the children run quick, quick, quick!
Spoken: Come back to your mats, little children!
It’s time for a rest.
Quietly, quietly, very quietly, (tiptoe to center of room, lie down and pretend to sleep)
Quietly, quietly, very quietly,
Quietly, quietly, very quietly,
All the children settle down for a rest.
Spoken: Shhh! They’re resting.
