Chicken Soup
from SurLaLune Storytime
When my forehead’s feeling hot Put hand to forehead.
Do I want pizza? I do not! Hold out hands in questioning gesture, shake head.
When I cough or when I sneeze Cough, sneeze.
Give me a bowl of hot soup please Make bowl with hands.
Eating chicken soup with rice Pretend to eat.
Makes me feel so very nice Hug self.
So when you’re feeling under the weather Frown, point thumb down.
Chicken soup might make you feel better Smile, point thumb up.

I’ve Got A Cold
from SurLaLune Storytime
I’ve got a gold point to yourself
My nose can’t smell. point to your nose
My eyes are red, point to your eyes
I don’t feel well. put your hand on your forehead

So, I’ll dringk my juice, pretend to drink
And go to bed. fold hands under your head
My nose feels better, point to nose
And so does my head! point to head
