Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Movement Song: The Itsy Bitsy Monkey
The itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the coconut tree
Down came a coconut that bopped him on the knee
Along came his Mama, who kissed away the pain
Then the itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the tree again

Movement Rhyme: Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
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.

Song: 10 Little Crocodiles
1 little, 2 little, 3 little crocodiles,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little crocodiles,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little crocodiles,
10 snapping their great big jaws.

Snap, snap, snap, snap, snap little crocodiles.
Snap, snap, snap, snap, snap little crocodiles.
Snap, snap, snap, snap, snap little crocodiles.
Snap your great big jaws!

Song: 10 Little Monkeys
1 little, 2 little, 3 little monkeys,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little monkeys,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little monkeys,
10 monkeys jumping up and down.

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monkeys.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monkeys.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monkeys.
Do a spin and sit right down!

Movement Song: If You’re a Lion and You Know It
If you’re a lion and you know it roar real loud.
If you’re a lion and you know it roar real loud.
If you’re a lion and you know it and you really want to show it.
If you’re a lion and you know it roar real loud.

If you’re a monkey and you know it jump up high.
If you’re a crocodile and you know it snap your jaws.
If you’re a tiger and you know it show your teeth.
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
