Slowly tuck into the snail shell. Crouch low to the floor, like an ant. Swim forward – you’re a large whale! Make the basset’s sad face. Smile, and slowly flap wings up and down. Remember to do both sides! Lift bunny ears high to the sky. Send your shark fin up through the water. Crouch down, then give a big toad hop! Send fox’s tail up to the sky. Remember to do both sides! Give a gentle “meow”… …and flow into a strong ox. Give a loud ROAR! Feet together, to form your clam shell. Grow a tough rhino skin, a long rhino tail, and a big front rhino horn. Remember to do both sides. Gently rest on four lamb feet, and quietly say “baaaa”. Send your tiger tail back, and bravely lift your hands to the sky. Feel the gentle ocean water on your shrimp tail. Sit up tall like the poodle. You’re a wild chimp! Relax, and pull up your lazy lizard legs. Remember to do both sides. Buzz and fly from flower to flower. Give a great big hug to the many sides of you! Instructional text is available for subscribers only. Subscribe Now! Check out our Teaching Tools and become a subscriber today!
