Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Fingerplay: Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them all around.
Clap them loud, then clap them soft
Now don’t make a sound.
Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet,
Stamp them all around.
Stamp them loud, then stamp them soft,
Now don’t make a sound.

Fingerplay: If You Listen and You Hear Me
If you listen and you hear me, go like this  (clap any rhythm)
If you listen and you hear me, go like this.  (repeat clapping)
If you listen, you will hear me
‘Cause you’re sitting really near me (or standing)
If you listen and you hear me, go like this  (repeat clapping)

For added verses: Pat your head. Jumping jack.

Fingerplay: 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!”
