Chop Chop Chippity Chop

Chop chop
Chippity chop
Cut off the bottom and cut off the top
What we have left we put in the pot
Chop chop
Chippity chop

This is a spoken chant, it is not sung
Sit in a circle with the children
The inside of the circle is the pretend pot
Have the children choose items to chop up for the soup (carrots, etc.)
One arm is the food you are chopping up for the soup
The opposite hand is your pretend knife
"Chop" to the beat of the chant
take turns picking other ingredients for the soup
Stir the soup at the end and "enjoy!!"
