Bow wow wow,
Whose dog art thou?
Little Tommy Tucker’s dog,
Bow wow wow. (whoo!)

Circle game

Students stand in a one circle, each facing a partner. Sing the song and do motions. The game continues until all students return to original partner.

Bow wow wow = stomp, stomp, stomp
Whose dog art thou? = wag finger at partner 3 times
Little Tommy Tucker’s dog = hold both hands with partner & trade places
Bow wow wow = stomp, stomp, stomp
(Last rest – say “whoo!”) = throw hands up in the air and twirl to face the person behind you
