Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: I Dreamt I Was
I dreamt I was an elephant
With a trunk so very long (Make trunk with one arm)
Eating lots of leaves
To grow up strong.
I dreamt I was an octopus
With eight long arms (Wave arms)
Swimming through the ocean
With my undersea charms.
I dreamt I was a butterfly
With wings bold and bright (Clasp thumbs together, flap hands as butterfly wings)
Flying all day long
Until the dark of night.
I dreamt I was a child
Reading’s what I loved to do (Open hands, as a book)
When I woke up, (Stretch, yawn)
My dream came true!

Nursery Rhyme: Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey, Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle.
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such a sport.
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Nursery Rhyme: Hickory, Dickory, Dock
Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

Flannelboard Rhyme: Over in the Meadow
Over in the meadow,
In the sand in the sun
Lived an old mother turtle
And her little turtle one
“Dig,” said the mother;
“I dig!” said the one,
So he dug all day
In the sand in the sun

Over in the meadow,
Where the stream runs blue
Lived an old mother fish
And her little fishes two
“Swim!” said the mother;
“We swim!” said the two,
So they swam and they leaped
Where the stream runs blue

Over in the meadow,
In a hole in a tree
Lived an old mother owl
And her little owls three
“Tu-whoo!” said the mother;
“We tu-whoo!” said the three
So they tu-whoo’d all day
In a hole in the tree

Over in the meadow,
In the reeds on the shore
Lived an old mother muskrat
And her little ratties four
“Dive!” said the mother;
“We dive!” said the four
So they dived and they burrowed
In the reeds on the shore

Over in the meadow,
In a snug beehive
Lived a mother honey bee
And her little bees five
“Buzz!” said the mother;
“We buzz!” said the five
So they buzzed and they hummed
In the snug beehive
