Bow Wow Wow


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. At the end, each student will be facing a new partner. Game continues until all students return to original partner.

Bow wow wow = stomp, stomp, stomp
Whose dog art thou? = wag finger at partner 4 times
Little Tommy Tucker’s dog, = hold both hands with partner and trade places after turning a half-turn
Bow wow wow = stomp, stomp, stomp
(whoo!) = throw hands up in the air and twirl to face the person behind you

The game continues until the partners end up with their original partners. If it doesn’t happen, someone didn’t do it correctly. Keep practicing! It is really fun!

*If there is an uneven number of students, I used to take their place. However, I now prefer to watch and troubleshoot. So, one student is a partner with stuffed animal, Beartoven. Students have fun passing him around during the game.
