Five little kittens finger play

Five little kittens standing in a row (extend left fingers upward, palm out.) They nod their heads to the children, so. (bend fingers forward.) They run to the left, they run to the right, (wiggle fingers to the left & right.) They stand up and stretch in the bright sunlight. (stretch fingers slowly.) Along comes a dog who’s in for some fun, (move right fist slowly toward stretching fingers.) M-e-o-w, see the kittens run. (run left fingers behind back.)
