Ten In A Bed
Action poem

There were ten in a bed and the little one said,
"Roll over, roll over." -- rolling motion
So they all rolled over and one fell out.
There were nine in the bed and the little one said,
"Roll over, roll over."
So they all rolled over and one fell out....

This is repeated until you get to the number one. Each time "roll over" is said, rolling motion is dramatized.

There was one in the bed and the little one said,
"Good night!"
