Wow, these are great!

I started reading your contributions to my wife, and she was able to name some of her own, since after all, she does have the world's cutest job: she teaches dance to public school students, kindergarten through second grade.

A variation on the "roll over" song:
Five lttle monkies jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped [broke] his head
Momma called th doctor and the doctor said
"No more monkies jumping on the bed.

And here's a gem from an album, What's in the Sea? by Lois Skiera-Zucek


At the bottom of the sea, I saw one worm
One worm, one very little worm
At the bottom of the sea, I saw one worm
Surry scurry scurry away

..two turtles

...three eels

Three eels, two turtles, one worm

Cho: One, two, three at the botom of the sea Surry, scurry away from me One, two, three at the botom of the sea Surry, scurry away from me

...four crabs
...five fish
...six seals

Cho

...seven sharks
...eight skates
...nine snails

Cho

At the bottom if the sea I saw ten men
They asked me if I'd sing it again.
