Songs and Poems:

- Only a Boy Named David (Traditional)
Only a boy named David (make a small person with hands)
Only a little sling (swing arm around at ear)
Only a boy named David (make a small person with hands)
But he did pray and sing (pray with hands and then raise hands into air)
Only a boy named David (make a small person with hands)
Only a rippling brook (move fingers like playing a piano)
Only a boy named David (make a small person with hands)
But five little stones he took (show five fingers)

And one little stone went in the sling (take one hand into the other hand)
And the sling went round and round (swing arm around at ear)
And one little stone went in the sling
And the sling went round and round (swing arm around at ear)
And round and round
And round and round
And round and round and round!
And one little stone went up in the air – oop, oop, oop, oop, oop  - move hands up into the air)
And the giant came tumbling down!  (fall down)

- "David, David" Poem (Adapted from Unknown Original Source)
Tune:  Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
David, David, turn around (turn around)
Pick that stone up off the ground (bend down and pick up)
David, David, swing your sling (swing hand above head)
Let it go and watch it fling (flick wrist)
Giant, Giant, up so high (reach arms into the sky)
Watch that stone; it really flies (put hand above eyes to watch)
Giant, Giant, standing tall (stand on tiptoes)
1, 2, 3 and down you fall (count with fingers and then fall)
