5 Little Valentines

Five little valentines were having a race,

The first little valentine was frilly with lace.

The second little valentine had a funny face.

The third little valentine said, "I love you".

The fourth little valentine said, "I do too".

The fifth little valentine was sly as a fox.

He ran the fastest to the valentine box.

A Very Nice Place
The fish lives in the brook   (palms together tightly and wiggle forward) 
The bird lives in the tree  (bend forearms at elbows and extend them upwards, cup hands and spread them open)
But homes are the very nicest place
For a little girl (boy) like me.    (Point to self)
This is a next for Mr. Bluebird  (cup both hands)
This is a hive for Mrs. Bee (fists together )
This is a hole for bunny rabbit  (fingers form a circle)
And this is a house for me         (finger tips together for a roof peak) 

(sung to “Do You Know the Muffin Man?”)
Do you know what shape this is,
What shape this is,
What shape this is?
Do you know what shape this is,
I’m holding in my hand?
