Song, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Movement Rhyme: My Little Moose
My little moose is funny and brown (do hands with antlers on your head)
He jumps quickly up! (jump up!)
And he flops back down! (flop down)
He bends to the left,
Then bends to the right (move side to side)
Then my funny little moose
Walks out of sight.

Movement Rhyme: Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Put them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin.
Open your mouth, but do not let them in!
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Put them in your lap.

Movement Song: If You Want to be a Moose
If you want to be a moose, shake your antlers!
If you want to be a moose, shake your antlers!
If you want to be a moose, if you want to be a moose,
If you want to be a moose, shake your antlers!

… parrot, flap your wings…
… monkey, jump up high…
… elephant, swing your trunk…
… lion, roar out loud…
…person, sit back down…

Flannel Board: Five Mighty Moose
Five Mighty Moose sat quietly on the floor, one toppled over and then there were four.
Four Mighty Moose, two and two you see, one toppled over and then there were three.
Three Mighty Moose, wanted something new, one toppled over and then there were two.
Two Mighty Moose wished for some fun, one toppled over and then there was one.
One Mighty Moose felt like he weighed a ton, he toppled over and then there were none.

Movement Song: Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o’er your shoulder,
Like a continental soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

Do your ears hang high?
Do they reach up to the sky?
Do they wrinkle when they’re wet?
Do they straighten when they’re dry?
Can you wave them at your neighbor,
With an element of flavor?
Do your ears hang high?

Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
We wave goodbye like this
We wave goodbye like this
We clap our hands for all our friends
We wave goodbye like this
