♫ The eensey weensey spider went up the water spout. [Spider gesture.]
Down came the rain and washed the spider out. [Rain gesture and then sweep your hands out.]
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain. [Sun gesture.]
Then the eensey weensey spider went up the spout again. [Spider gesture.]
Okay…put your fingers together.
Let’s do The Eensey Weensey Spider.
The eensey weensey spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
Then the eensey weensey spider went up the spout again.
A little faster now.
The eensey weensey spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
Then the eensey weensey spider went up the spout again.
Now let’s try it slow, with a low voice.
And a big, big spider. [Do the same actions this time, but with BIG gestures. Put your hands far apart.]
The big, big spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
Then the big, big spider went up the spout again. ♫
