I Have a House

A fun little chant!
Written by Matt Fernald


I have a house,
It's this big and this big,
And from the chimney comes the smoke
Like this, like this--
I have a house like that.

Mouse has a house,
It's this big and this big,
And in the kitchen smell the cheese
Like this, like this--
Mouse has a house like that.

Snake has a house,
It's this big and this big,
And from the doorway comes her tongue
Like this, like this;
Snake has a house like that.

Oh, but I have a house,
It's this big and this big,
I have a house like that.

Make up other animals!
I like to match the dimensions of the house to the size and shape of the animal.


Use hands to show how big the house is on each "this" — vertically, then horizontally
