Bee Bee Bumble Bee


(Traditional chant)

Bee, bee, bumble bee,
Stung a man upon his knee,
Stung a pig upon his snout,
I declare that you are out!

Circle Game

Formation: Students sitting in a circle with one student (“It”) standing outside the circle.

When song begins, “It” walks around outside the circle pointing to each student (on the steady beats).* On the word “out,” the student who is being pointed to becomes the next “It.”

*Variation: “It” can have a bee stuffed animal, puppet or laminated picture on a stick and pretend to bounce the bee on each student’s head.
