AUDIENCE PARTICIPATIONS

This Is the House that I Built
Baltimore Area Council

Have audience repeat the words and actions along with you

This is the house          (Make a roof with arms, touching fingertips together)
That I built.                                                                      (Point to self)

This is the saw that cut the boards           (Make sawing motion)
That went into the house                           (Make roof with arms)
That I built.                                                            (Point to self)

This is the hammer                              (Make fist with right hand)
That nailed the boards           (Pound right fist into left palm)
That I cut with the saw                                       (Sawing motion)
That went into the house                           (Make roof with arm)
That I built.                                                            (Point to self)

These are my hands          (Hold out hands and look at them)
That held the hammer                                                (Make fist)
That nailed the boards                    (Pound right fist in left palm)
That I cut with the saw                                       (Sawing motion)
That went into the house                        (Make roof with hands)
That I built.                                                            (Point to self)

I am sure you can think up more actions to keep this going and growing!!  CD
