We will also try this action rhyme:
Here's a Little Egg
Here's a little egg, so smooth and white.
Peck, peck, peck, there's something inside!
Peck, peck, peck, here comes a little beak.
Peck, peck, peck, here comes two little feet.
Peck, peck, peck and pick, pick, pick.
And crack, crack, CRACK!
Out pops the baby chick!
A chicken, so called to and by little children.
