Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
The more we get together
The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

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.

Fishy-Pokey
You put your stripy fish in,
You put your stripy fish out;
You put your stripy fish in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Fishy-Pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

You put your octopus in,
You put your octopus out;
You put your octopus in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Fishy-Pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

You put your shark in,
You put your shark out;
You put your shark in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Fishy-Pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

Ten Little Fishes
(Tune of Ten Little Indians)
One little, two little, three little fishes,
Four little, five little, six little fishes,
Seven little, eight little, nine little fishes,
Ten little fishes swimming.

Ten little, nine little, eight little fishes,
Seven little, six little, five little fishes,
Four little, three little, two little fishes,
One little fish is swimming.

Swimming Pool
Swimming, swimming in the swimming pool.
Some days it’s hot, some days it’s cold in the swimming pool.
Breaststroke, sidestroke, fancy diving too.
Don’t you wish you didn’t have anything else to do
BUT………

Wave high, wave low,
I think it’s time, we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips,
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye,
Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”
