Who Comes from There?

Story:

 

Movements:

Ei, who comes from there?
Isn´t that a big, round teddy bear?

 

knocking on the floor

Or even a big elephant
from a foreign, far country?

 

pounding on the floor

No, that´s a little mouse

 

tipping with the fingers on the floor

and she searches for her house!

 

laying the hands on the head

Ei, where did it go now?

 

children tickle their belly

Quickly tell her!
Here is the small mousehole!

 

and point with their fingers at their bellies.

(Ullmann, 2010)

Riding on the Bus

Story:

 

Movements:

A bus drives – hup hup, a bus drives – hup hup.

 

walking in a circle holding hands

First he drives slowly like a snail,

 

going slowly

then he races around the hedge,

 

running fast

now he brakes fast at one go

 

stopping abruptly

and drives slowly step by step.

 

walking with coffee beans

A bus drives – hup hup, a bus drives – hup hup.

 

walking in a circle holding hands

(Ullmann, 2010)
