Can you think of actions for the poem ? I can sit still on my bottom I can hear a whisper And I can dance around I can hear a shout I can close my eyes to sleep I can keep still And not make a sound. Or I can run about. I can curl in a ball I can see my nose tip Reach my fingers to the sky I can see a star I can talk and sing and laugh I can go to the moon And wiggle my toes up high. Or drive a car. I can smell a lovely flower I can stroke a cat’s fur And sniff what’s cooking for tea And clap my hands in glee I have a wonderful body And it belongs to me! And it belongs to me. Your teacher might want to make it into a song. See if you can help
