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.

Snowy Pokey
You put your right mitten in, You take your right mitten out,
You put your right mitten in and you shake it all about.
You do the Snowy Pokey and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

Continue with additional verses:
You put your left mitten in
You put your scarf in
You put your right boot in
You put your hat in
You put your snowself in

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.

Snowflakes
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle)
Snowflakes, snowflakes, dance around.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, touch the ground.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, in the air.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, everywhere!
Snowflakes, snowflakes, dance around.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, touch the ground.

I Built a Snowman
I built a little snowman. (make circles with arms)
He had a carrot nose. (point to nose)
Along came a bunny (hold up two bent fingers)
And what do you suppose? (shrug)
That hungry little bunny, (make bunny again)
Looking for his lunch, (hop bunny around)
Ate the snowman’s nose. (grab nose with fingers)
Nibble… nibble… CRUNCH! (pretend to eat carrot nose)

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!
