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.

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 do not let them in!
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.

Five little monkeys
Five little monkeys sitting in a tree.
(five=Show 5 fingers,)
(monkey=Hands scratching underarms,
(sitting=first 2 fingers “sit” on first 2 fingers of other hand,)
(tree=Hand under elbow and wave arm for tree)
Teasing Mr. Crocodile,
(crocodile=Arms out straight in front & clap hands horizontally)
Can’t catch me, can’t catch me.
(can’t=1 pointer finger “spanks” the other pointer finger,)
(catch=grabbing motion with 1 hand,)
(me=tap chest with pointer finger)
Along comes Mr. Crocodile and snap!
(crocodile=Arms straight out in front and clap hands together)
***Repeat until all the monkeys are gone!!***

Silly Hat Song  (Tune: This Old Man)
On my head, I wear my hat.
It is such a silly hat
My head will wiggle waggle to and fro
Where else can my silly hat go?
On my foot, I wear my hat.
It is such a silly hat
My foot will wiggle waggle to and fro
Where else can my silly hat go?     [Repeat using elbow and knee.]

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!”
