Song of Opposites in English, Gujarati and Hindi

SeesawWithKids_wbAlka Patel, a children’s librarian in the US, sent us this opposites song in English, Gujarati and Hindi.  Here’s the note I received…

I did this opposite song in three languages in my Multilingual story time at my library. I used actions with this song and the kids enjoyed it. This activity is limitless. You can make more actions using different opposite themes.  I am attaching the song in English with the Gujarati and Hindi language text and pronunciations…

Song of Opposites
(English)

1. This is big, this is small
This is big, this is small
This is big, this is small
Sing along with me.

2. This is Up, this is down,
This is Up, this is down,
This is Up, this is down,
Sing along with me.

3. This is in, this is out,
This is in, this is out,
This is in, this is out,
Sing along with me.

4. This is fast, this is slow,
This is fast, this is slow,
This is fast, this is slow,
Sing along with me.
