Head, Shoulders, Knees and…SURPRISE!

Posted by on March 25, 2011

I have sung this with my 4-5 year old students, and they love it.  It’s great for when they’re getting just a little bit restless, their arms are getting sore and we just need to do an action song. 

I whip this one out (he is usually all set up ready to go anyway), then it’s just a matter of singing it through with the ‘normal’ actions, then changing them a little.  See how fast you can sing it and do the actions!

I have found a fantastic picture of a boy (thanks abcteach.com for your wonderful resources).  I put together a few simple wordstrips of body parts so you can change the words around – and label him with the words you wish to use

To print out the graphic and cards to this fun song, click here: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Note: I did print out the boy in ‘Poster’ form, and the cards in ‘normal’ print.  The PDF is normal though in case you want to print the boy out on A4 paper, and make the cards smaller.

    Great Idea, you mentioned preparing tubs to have at a moments notice. I am trying to do something similar and am wondering if you would be willing to share what you have put into yours?
