A great circle time song

Lyrics

Look who is here,
Punchinello, funny fellow.
Look who is here,
Punchinello, funny clown.

What can you do,
Punchinello, funny fellow?
What can you do,
Punchinello, funny clown?

We’ll do it too,
Punchinello, funny fellow.
We’ll do it too,
Punchinello, funny clown!

Who do you choose, Punchinello, funny fellow?
Who do you choose, Punchinello, funny clown?

Activities

Music

  • Feel the beat (the steady pulse). Children choose a percussion instrument or a body percussion sound e.g. slap knees, clap hands to play along to the beat of the song.

Drama

  • Use props, face paint or make up to turn yourself into a clown.

Dance

  • Children join hands in a circle and dance in a clockwise direction. A “Punchinello” in the middle of the circle chooses what actions to do for children to copy; Punchinello then closes eyes, points a finger, turns around until the end of the verse to choose another “Punchinello”. Keep repeating the song as many times as you like.
  • Children view the video song on YouTube and compare the actions with their own ideas.

Literacy

  • Sing and read along to the YouTube song to achieve multi-sensory learning “Do it, see it and hear it!”
