God made the sun
action: form a circle with arms above the head)
And God made the trees.
action: form branches of a tree with arms spread out above your head)
God made the flowers,
(action: cup one hand for the flower and forearm as stem. Place other hand under elbow as foundation of the flower)
And God made the bees
(action: thumb and pointer finger together, dart about with buzzing sound)
Thank you, God, for the sun,
(action: same as sun above)
And the trees,
(action: same as trees above)
For the beautiful flowers,
(action: same as flowers above)
And the buzzing bees.
(action: same as bees above)
For the sounds I hear,
(action: cup hand behind ear)
And the sights I see,
action: hands above eyes as though trying to see far away)
But most of all, thank you for me!
(action: point to self—give self a hug)
