Five Little Peas
Five little peas in a pod pressed (make pod with hands together)
One grew, two grew (stand up one finger, then another with pinkies and palms still touching)
So did all the rest (all five up)
They grew and they grew (make growing gesture)
And they did not stop
Until one day, the pod went pop! (separate palms with popping gesture)
