Opening Song: 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: Old MacDonald (flannel board)
Old MacDonald had a farm
ee-i-ee-i-o
And on this farm he had some….
DUCKS
ee-i-ee-i-o
With a quack, quack here
And a quack, quack there
Here a quack, there a quack
Everywhere a quack, quack
Old MacDonald had a farm
ee-i-ee-i-o

Props: Shaker Eggs!
Song: I Know A Chicken by Laurie Berkner Band

Finger Play: 5 Little Ducks
Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mama duck said, “quack, quack, quack, quack,”
but only four little ducks came back…

Four little ducks went out one day…
But only three little ducks came back…

Three little ducks went out one day…
but only two little ducks came back…

Two little ducks went out one day…
but only one little duck came back…

One little duck went out one day…
but no little ducks came back…

No little ducks went out one day…
and all five ducks came waddling back

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!”
