Action Rhyme: “Birthday Months”

If your birthday is in January, turn around
If your birthday is in February, touch the ground
March, march along
 April, sing a song
May, wiggle your nose
June, shake your toes
 July, jump up high
 August, reach the sky
 September, tap your shoe
 October, call out “Boo!”
 November, tickle your ears
 December, give three cheers!
