Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Fingerplay: Ten Little Clowns
Ten little clowns stood in a row,
They bowed their heads to the crowd just so.
They ran to the left,
And ran to the right.
A lion growled real loud,
And gave the clowns a fright!

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 Rhyme: If You Are 2 Today
If you are two today, two today, two today.
If you are two today, jump up and shout hooray!
Three today…
Four today…
Five today…
Six today…
At storytime today…

Movement Song: If You’re a Monkey And You Know
If you’re a monkey and you know it jump up high.
Flamingo…flap your wings
Crocodile…snap your jaws.
Rhino…stomp the ground.
Lion…roar out loud

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.

Closing Song: Wave Goodbye
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!”
