Did you ever see a wiggle worm,
A wiggle worm, a wiggle worm?
Did you ever see a wiggle worm
Move this way and that?
Move this way and that way,
Move this way and that way.
Did you ever see a wiggle worm
Move this way and that?


Nobody likes me,
Everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms,

Long, thin, slimy ones,
Short, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one,
Down goes the second one,
Oh, how they wiggle and squirm.

Up comes the first one,
Up comes the second one,
Oh, how they wiggle and squirm.


This little worm, wiggly worm
He goes creeping through the dirt
With a squirm and a squiggle and a dig, dig, dig
Hide from the robin, oh so big!


Here are some worms who are, oh, so sad.

They’ve lost all the wiggles that they once had.

They wonder if you, just for today.

Would lend them your wiggles so they can play

Wiggle them up and wiggle them down           (have the children wiggle arms up and down)

Wiggle your worms around and around           (wiggle arms around in a circle)

Wiggle them high and wiggle them low           (wiggle arms high and wiggle arms low)

Wiggle them fast and wiggle them slow          (wiggle arms fast and wiggle arms slow)

Wiggle them over your shoes and your socks (wiggle finger over shoe, and wiggle finger on sock)

Then wiggle them back up to their box           (then have children pretend to place their worm in a box on their lap)

Thank you for sharing your wiggles today.

You’ll get them back when it’s your time to play.

Now that your wiggles are all gone from you,

I’ll tell you just what we are going to do.


When I go fishing down by the brook,

I put a wiggly worm on my hook.

I toss it on the water,

And I hope with all my might,

A little fish will swim on by,

And take a great big bite!


Five little wiggle worms

Wiggling in the grass

Teasing Mr. Robin

Can’t catch me

Down swooped Mr. Robin

As swift as could be

Scooping up a wiggle worm

As fast as could be.

Four little wiggle worms...

Three little wiggle worms...

Two little wiggle worms...

One little wiggle worm...


Red apple, red apple shiny as can be

Teasing Mr. Worm,   "Can't catch me! can't catch me!"       (shake finger back and forth)

Along comes Mr. Worm and eats his way inside...     (point finger like worm and move up and down) Small, Medium, Large

Where does he hide?

Have three apples in appropriate sizes with worm hidden behind one of the apples.
