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.

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)

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!”
