Popcorn Kernels

(Tune of "Open Shut Them")
You can also check out this fun, semi-related video!


Popcorn kernels, popcorn kernels,
Squeezed into a pot; now
Shake them, shake them, shake them up
Until they start to POP!


Wave scarves gently side to side
Ball them up tightly between hands
Shake!
Toss into the air on POP!
NOTES
Tempo: Try it faster and faster
Volume: Start quiet, then get louder and louder!
Drama: Children stand in a circle, forming a "pot". Holding their scarves towards the middle, they create a massive pop!
Dyad: 2-3 children work together, using all their hands to scrunch up their scarves together, then POP together.
