Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Activity: If I Were a Leaf
If I were a leaf . . .
I’d jump down from my tree,
I’d dance in the wind,
I’d fly in the breeze.
I’d change bright colors,
I’d spin in the air,
Then I’d land on the ground,
I just don’t know where!

Song: If You’re a Monster and You Know It
(tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It)
If you’re a monster and you know it, wave your arms.
If you’re a monster and you know it, wave your arms.
If you’re a monster and you know it,
Then your arms will surely show it.
If you’re a monster and you know it, wave your arms…

If you’re a monster and you know it . . .
Show your claws, gnash your teeth, stomp your feet

Flannel story: Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first one said “Oh my it’s getting Late”
The second one said “There’s a chill in the air”
The third one said “But we don’t care”
The fourth one said “We’re ready for some fun!”
The fifth one said “Let’s run, run, run!”
So woooo went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
