Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Fingerplay: Ten Little Lambs
Ten little lambs standing in a row.
They nod their heads just so.
They ran to the left,
And they ran to the right.
They stand up and stretch in the bright sunlight.
Along comes a wolf that’s hungry for some fun.
WOW! See those little lambs run!

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 Song: Clap, Clap, Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap your hands with me
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Clap your hands with me.

Jump, jump, jump up high
Jump up high with me.

Spin, spin, spin around
Spin around with me.

Stomp, stomp, stomp your feet.
Stomp your feet with me.

Pat, pat, pat your knees.
Pat your knees with me.

Wave, wave, wave hello
Wave hello with me!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Wave at all you see.
