Optional chant, “Grassy Grass Grass”
I think to make this work better in the classroom, you can do four lines at a time since they all relate and have them say them back to you. You can add four lines week by week until eventually you have the whole thing.

    Additional verses I made up (for a longer session – not sure if you guys really need it for this, but on the other hand, maybe your kids will enjoy helping you invent other verses?):

    After the “doggy run quicky home” verse:
    (have to clean up after playing in the mud!)
    Bathy Bath Bath
    Tubby tub tub
    Scrubby scrub scrub
    Cleany clean clean
    (and now, we’re hungry for dinner!)
    Stir-ry stir stir
    Soupy soup soup
    Munchy munch munch
    Yummy yum yum!
    (then it’s time for bed :)
