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.

Fingerplay: Reach and Wiggle
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your eyebrows, wiggle your nose.
Put your bottom on the floor,
Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

Fingerplay: Five Little Pumpkins
5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, “Oh, my it’s getting late!”
The second one said, “We don’t care!”
The third one said, “There are leaves all in the air!”
The fourth one said, “I’m ready for some fun!”
The fifth one said, “Let’s run and run and run!”
Then Whoooooosh… went the wind,
And out went the light!
And the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight.

Fingerplay: 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 don’t let them in!
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Lay them in your lap.

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!”
