Something Big, Something Small
A song that covers adjectives and their opposites.
Something big, something big
Something small, something small
Something short, something short
Something tall, something tall
Something heavy, something heavy
Something light, something light
Something black, something black
And something white, and something white
Something hot, something hot
Something cold, something cold
Something new, something new
Something old, something old
Something dirty, something dirty
Something clean, something clean
Something red, something red
And something green, and something green
You can use call and response structure to make this chant easier: you sing, they echo you.
You may just find it easier without the backing track as there’s quite a lot for the children to process every line.
You could get the class to collect objects from the classroom to match these adjectives. Then put them in the correct order and sing.
Or ask your children for anything that’s big (e.g. an elephant) and draw it on the board. Then ask for the opposite – draw a mouse. Continue with every word – and then sing it together.
Another way would be just to act out every adjective together.
