Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Song: Insects All Around
Lady bugs and butterflies
Buzzing bees up in the sky
Teeny, tiny little ants
Crawling up and down my pants
Many insects can be found
In the sky and on the ground

Movement Rhyme: Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
I can put them together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump up high,
Or make them go low.
I can fold them up quietly,
And sit just so!

Flannel Board: The Ants Go Marching
The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah,
The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah,
The ants go marching one by one,
The little one stops for a hamburger bun,
And they all go marching on…

(Repeat with:)
The ants go marching two by two…. piece of fruit…
The ants go marching three by three… slice of cheese…
The ants go marching four by four… ear of corn…
The ants go marching five by five… French fries…
The ants go marching six by six… carrot sticks…
The ants go marching seven by seven… slice of heaven…
The ants go marching eight by eight… a grape…
The ants go marching nine by nine… melon rind…
The ants go marching ten by ten… a burger again…

Movement Song: If You’re a Bug And You Know It
If you’re a bee and you know it buzz like this: Buzz! Buzz!
If you’re a bee and you know it buzz like this: Buzz! Buzz!
If you’re bee and you know it and you really want to show it,
If you’re a bee and you know it buzz like this: Buzz! Buzz!

If you’re a grasshopper and you know it hop like this: Hop! Hop!
If you’re a butterfly and you know it flap your wings.
If you’re a caterpillar and you know it move really slow.
If you’re at storytime and you know it sit back down.
