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: Clap Your Paws
Clap, clap, clap your paws.
Clap your paws with me.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily.
Clap your paws with me.

Show, show, show your teeth…
Growl, growl, growl real loud…
Jump, jump, jump up and down…

Movement Rhyme: Polar Bear Polar Bear
Polar bear, polar bear, turn around.
Polar bear, polar bear, touch the ground.
Polar bear, polar bear, bend your knees.
Polar bear, polar bear, climb these trees.
Polar bear, polar bear, stand on your toes.
Polar bear, polar bear, touch your nose
Polar bear, polar bear, reach up high.
Polar bear, polar bear, wink one eye.
Polar bear, polar bear, make a frown.
Polar bear, polar bear, sit right down.

Movement Song: Goin’ On a Bear Hunt
Goin’ on a bear hunt.
Goin to catch a big one.
I’m not afraid.
Look, what’s up ahead?
Mud!
Can’t go over it.
Can’t go under it.
Can’t go around it.
Gotta go through it.
[Make sloshing sounds and move hands as if slogging.]

Following verses:
Sticks. [Snap fingers.]
Tree. [Make gestures climbing up and down.]
River. [Make swimming gestures.]
Cave. [Go in it and find lion.]
AHHH! Run!
Back to the river. Swim, swim, swim!
Back up the tree. Climb, climb, climb!…

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
