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: Row Your Silly Boat
Row, row row your boat
Gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile
Don’t forget to scream!

Don’t forget to jump and scream!
Don’t for get to clap your hands, jump, and scream!
Don’t forget to spin around, clap your hands, jump, and scream!
Don’t forget to pat your head, spin around, clap your hands, and scream!

Movement Rhyme: Crocodile Crocodile
Crocodile Crocodile
Long and Green
Crocodile Crocodile
Teeth so mean
Snapping at a fly
Snapping at a bee
Snapping at a frog
And snapping at me! (crouch down & cover head)

Movement Rhyme: Get Very Big, Get Very Small
Get very big, get very small,
Spin in a circle but try not to fall.
Do a dance across the floor.
Close your eyes and count to four.
Spread your feet, look upside down.
Make a silly face and act like a clown.
Hop like a bunny, flap like a bird,
Quiet as a mouse now…Don’t say a word.
Lean to the front, lean to the back,
Stand up, sit down, clap, clap, clap.
Lean to the left, lean to the right,
Stand up, sit down, say “Good night!”
Lean toward the window, lean toward the door,
Stand up, sit down, clap once more!

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
