OLD GREY CAT preschool music activity
The old grey cat is sleeping, sleeping, sleeping,
The old grey cat is sleeping, in the house.
The little mice are nibbling, nibbling, nibbling
The little mice are nibbling, in the house.
The old grey cat comes creeping, creeping, creeping,
The old grey cat comes creeping, through the house,
The little mice all scamper, scamper, scamper,
The little mice all scamper, through the house.
Here is a link to the music, lyric chart and activity booklet for Old Grey Cat a preschool music activity from Musical Child’s Lesson Plan Are You Sleeping?
This activity is really good for young children because they have to wait for a change in the music before the cat can chase the mice. If you have a child in your care who finds it hard to wait, cue her/him in to the music and repeat the activity many times so s/he can learn when to “let loose”. I’m sure it will become a favourite.
Try this activity with a small group of children from age two years up to six or seven. If you have a large group, simply repeat the preschool music activity several times taking turns to hold the stuffed animal toys. If you don’t have any toys, make the cat and mice from recycled materials. It will be doubly fun if the children make their own.
