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.

This is the Way We…
Get out of bed, get out of bed, get out of bed.
This is the way we get out of bed, so early in the morning.

…put on our pants.
…put on our shirt.
…put on our socks.
…brush our hair.
…brush our teeth.

We Can
We can jump, jump, jump,
We can hop, hop, hop,
We can clap, clap, clap,
We can stomp, stomp, stomp.
We can nod our heads for yes,
We can shake our heads for no.
We can bend our knees a tiny bit,
And sit down slow

Old McDonald
Old McDonald had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O.
And on that farm he had some chickens,
E-I-E-I-O.
With a cluck-cluck here
and a cluck-cluck there.
Here a cluck, there a cluck,
Everywhere a cluck, cluck.

Cows, pigs, dogs, etc.

The Noble Duke of York
Oh, the Noble Duke of York (march in place)
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up the hill
And then he marched them down again (crouch down)

And when they’re up, they’re up (stand up)
And when they’re down, they’re down (crouch down)
And when they’re only half way up (stand up halfway)
They’re neither up nor down (stand up, sit down)

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!
