Here’s a rhyme my 1st grade daughter just taught me. You can hear her reciting it by clicking on the mp3 below. The actions that are done with the rhyme are in parentheses…

MP3 of Lemonade, Crunchy Ice

Lemonade, Crunchy Ice

(clap, clap, clap)
Crunchy ice*
(clap, clap, clap)
Sip it once*
(clap, clap, clap)
Sip it twice*
(clap, clap, clap)
Turn around (turn around)
Touch the ground (touch the ground)
Kick your brother out of town!
And stomp! (jump)

*You can play this with two people. While you’re saying these lines you clap each other’s hands in the following way: one person’s left hand is clapping down and their right hand is clapping up while the second person faces the first and does the opposite. Then switch the hand that’s clapping up to clap down, and the one clapping down to clap up.
