Over the fence (go above the hand)
Through the door (slide hands and clap)
And was back in time to meet the teacher (trace circle in palm)

Puppet & Song: “Did You Ever See a Llama?”
Did you ever see a llama, a llama, a llama?
Did you ever see a llama go this way and that?
Go this way and that way, go this way and that way?
