(Sung to: Skip to My Lou)

(C) Owl in the tree says "Who, who, who."
(G) Owl in the tree says "Who, who, who."
(C) Owl in the tree says "Who, who, who."
(G) "Who, who, who (C) are you?"

Point to a child and ask their name.  I had more success asking for volunteers first so I didn't put the shy ones on the spot.  And, when the shy ones did volunteer they had time to compose themselves.  I also let them hold a stuffed owl after they said their name, and pass it on to the next child.  From, ukulele/guitar chords are mine.

Owl Hokey Pokey

You put your right wing in.
You put your right wing out.
You put your right wing in.
And you flap it all about.
You do the owl hokey pokey and you fly yourself around.
That's what it's all about.  Hoo, hoo!

Left wing
Right claw
Left claw
Whole, feathered self
