Bit by Bit

I want to put a big box into a little box, but it doesn’t fit.
Maybe if I hit it I can make it fit.
No. It still does not fit.
Maybe if I sit on it I can make it fit.
No.  It still does not fit.
What if I tear it into bits?
Bit by bit I can fit the big box in.
Lickety split! 
I did it!  Now it all fits!

Sit on It

You can sit on a word that ends in -it.
The word lit ends in -it, so you can sit on it!
The word big does not end in -it, so you do not sit on it.
Instead, you get to sit in the pit.  
 
You can sit on a word that ends in -it.
The word kit ends with -it, so you can sit on it!
The word fit ends with -it, so you can sit on it!
Don’t quit!
You can sit on all the words that end in -it.
And you can sit in the pit if a word does not end in -it.

Spit Out the Pit!

Look! A deer has a plum pit in its mouth.
Tell him,
“Spit out the pit! You can’t eat it!
But, don’t spit the pit at me!”
 
The deer has another pit in its mouth. 
Tell him, 
“Spit out the pit! You can’t eat it!
But, please don’t spit the pit at me!”
 
The deer has yet another pit in its mouth. Tell him, 
“Spit out the pit! You can’t eat it!
But, PLEASE don’t spit the pit at me!

Fit Pits in a Slit

I see a lid with a slit in it.
Can you fit a pit in the slit?
Try to slip the pit into the slit.
See if the pit will fit. 
Will the pit fit in the slit?
I bet it will not fit! 
 
Now try to fit words in the slit.
Can you fit the word sit in the slit?
Can you fit the word kit in the slit?
Will all the words fit?
I bet all the words will fit in the slit!

Don't Spit a Bit!

Some tub toys can spit. 
Here is what to say to a toy that spits: 
You can spit. 
You can spit a bit. 
But, don't spit at me! 
Don't spit at me - not even a bit! 
If you spit at me, I'll say, "I quit!"
