Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Opening Song: Come Along and Sing With Me
(tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)
Come along and sing with me, sing with me, sing with me.
Come along and sing with me, on a sunny Tuesday.

Come along and clap with me . . .
Come along and jump with me…
Come along and stretch with me . . .
Come along and sit with me…

Movement Song: The Waves on the Sea
(tune: Wheels on the Bus)
The waves on the sea go up and down,
Up and down, up and down,
The waves on the sea go up and down
All day long.

Additional Verses:
The shark in the sea goes snap snap snap..
The fish in the sea go swish swish swish..
The boats in the sea go toot toot toot…

Movement Rhyme: 10 Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers,
and they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
would you like to see?
I can shut them tight.
I can open them wide.
I can put them together.
I can make them hide.
I can make them fly high.
I can make them fly low.
I can fold them like this and hold them just so.

Movement Rhyme: I’m a Little Octopus
Arm #1 goes swish, swish, swish.
Arm #2 helps me catch fish.
Arm #3 pats my head.
Arm #4 makes sure I’m fed.
Arm #5 swims me to shore.
Arm #6 touches the ocean floor.
Arm #7 can grab and tug.
But all eight arms give me a hug!

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.

Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
We wave goodbye like this
We wave goodbye like this
We clap our hands for all our friends
We wave goodbye like this
