Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Opening Song: Clap and Sing Hello
(tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We stomp and sing hello,
We stomp and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We stomp and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello,
We wave and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We sit and say hello!

Fingerplay: Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side,
then behing my back they hide.
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so.
Shake them fast, shake them slow.
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap.
Then I rest them in my lap.
Now they’re quiet as can be.
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Rhyme: Four Little Stars
Four little stars,
winking at me.
One shot off,
then there were three!

Three little stars,
with nothing to do.
One shot off,
then there were two.

Two little stars,
afraid of the sun.
One shot off,
then there was one.

One little star,
Alone is no fun.
It shot off,
then there was none!

Song: Twinkle, Twinkle, Real Star
(tune: twinkle, twinkle, little star)
Twinkle, twinkle, little star, I know what you really are,
Giant ball of glowing gas, One of billions in a mass,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star, oh how big you really are!
Twinkle, twinkle, giant star, larger than the Earth by far.
Since your distance is a lot, you look like a tiny dot.
Twinkle, twinkle, giant star, very bright, yet very far.
Stars are twinkling, every one, some are bigger than the sun.
Just a twinkle in the sky, just because you’re oh so high.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star, oh how big you really are.

Action Song: If You’re Going to the Moon
If you’re going to the moon, stomp your boots (stomp, stomp)
If you’re going to the moon, stomp your boots (stomp, stomp)
If you’re going to the moon, this is what you have to do
If you’re going to the moon, stomp your boots (stomp, stomp)
…clap your gloves (clap, clap)
…pat your helmet (pat, pat)
…then blast off! ZOOM! (jump)

Action Rhyme: Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Zoom, zoom, zoom (rub hands)
We’re going to the moon (fly hands upward)
If you want to take the trip
Climb aboard my rocketship (pretend climb a ladder)
Zoom, zoom, zoom (rub hands)
We’re going to the moon!
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (slowly crouch down)
BLAST OFF! (jump up)
Zoom, zoom, zoom (rub hands)
We’ve landed on the moon! (stand proud)

Puppets: Reach for the Stars
Bend and strech, reach for the stars,
There goes Jupiter and there goes Mars.
Bend and strech, reach for the sky,
Up on tip-e-toes, oh so high.
Wait a minute!
What was that? (animal noise)
There goes a (present animal)
How ’bout that!

Action Rhyme: Alien Alien, Turn Around
Alien, alien, turn around.
Alien, alien, touch the ground.
Alien, alien, jump up high.
Alien, alien, touch the sky.
Alien, alien, tie your shoe,
Alien, alien, that will do.

Closing Rhyme: Tickle the Clouds
Tickle the clouds,
tickle your toes,
turn around,
and tickle your noes.
Reach down low,
and jump up high.
Storytime’s over,
so wave goodbye.
