Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Clap and Sing Hello! (tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello
We wave and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

We stomp and sing hello,
We stomp and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side
Hold hands at side
Then behind my back they hide
Put hands behind back
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so
Wiggle your fingers
Shake them fast, shake them slow
Shake fingers fast and slow
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap hands
Then I rest them in my lap
Rest hands in lap
Now they’re quiet as can be.
Because it’s listening time, you see.

If You’re Wearing [color] Today (tune: Do You Know the Muffin Man?)
If you’re wearing red today.
Red today, red today.
If you’re wearing red today,
Stand up and say “hooray!”

Green Says Go
Green says, “Go!” (march in place quickly)
Go! Go! Go!
Yellow says, “Slow!” (march slowly)
Slow . . . slow . . . slow
And red says, “Stop!” (stop suddenly)
Go, go, go! (move fast)
Slow . . . slow . . . slow (move slowly)
And STOP! (stop)

Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay 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.
Lay them in your lap.

Beautiful Rainbow
One day the sun was shining bright
(hold up right hand like blocking sunlight)
But some clouds came along and it became black as night
(Hold up left hand for the clouds)
Then the rain began to sprinkle onto the ground
(wiggle fingers for the rain coming down)
And soon it was raining all over the town.
But when the clouds had passed on by
(move both hands to one side)
A big beautiful rainbow stretched across the sky
(make a rainbow arc with your hands)

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap

Stomp your feet
Blink your eyes
Wave goodbye!
