Classroom Benefits

This is a great song for introducing or reviewing parts of the body. It's also an excellent tool for communicating the meaning of "Can you _____?" and "I can _____."

It's a great song to role-play in class. Bring out some sponges and buckets and pretend to take a bath. Kids love it!

Activity Ideas

You can sing this song in a call-and-response format with the teacher singing the "Can you _____?" lines, and the children singing the "I can _____." lines. Alternatively, split the class up into 2 groups, and have one group sing the "Can you _____?" lines, and the other group sing the "I can_____." lines. 1

Once the students are familiar with the song, you can do a number of variations, such as reversing roles and having the children ask you, "Can you wash your _____?" 2

When you sing, "I can wash my _____," pretend to wash the wrong body part and see if the students catch it! 3

Give baths to some stuffed animals. 4

At home, this song becomes a great bath time song (without music--we don't recommend CD players in the bathroom!) Not only does it teach body parts but it is also a fun way to encourage your child to start washing her/himself. Try it! 5
