Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Movement Rhyme: What Do Monsters Do?
What do monsters do?
They stretch up high and touch their toes.
What do monsters do?
They comb their purple hair.
What do monsters do?
They stick out their green tongues.
What do monsters do?
They brush their teeth with a broom.
What do monsters do?
They shake their bright blue arms.
What do monsters do?
They wiggle their orange ears.
Boy, am I glad that I’m not a monster!

Movement Song: One Little Monster
One little, two little,
Three little monsters
Four little, five little,
Six little monsters
Seven little, eight little,
Nine little monsters
Ten of them can’t scare me!

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monsters.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monsters.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monsters.
Spin around and count backwards from 10!

Ten little, nine little,
Eight little monsters
Seven little, six little,
Five little monsters,
Four little, three little,
Two little monsters,
One of them can’t scare me!

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monsters.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monsters.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little monsters.
Spin around and sit back down!

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 Rhyme: Monster Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Monster head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.
Monster head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.
Monster eyes and ears and mouth and nose.
Monster head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes!

Movement Rhyme: Monster Monster
Monster, monster, turn around.
Monster, monster, touch the ground.
Monster, monster, reach up high.
Monster, monster, squint your eyes.
Monster, monster, show your teeth.
Monster, monster, stamp your feet.
Monster, monster sit right down.
Monster, monster clap your hands.
Monster, monster quiet please.
