Songs, Rhymes & Finger Plays

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 gt together, the happier we’ll be.

Finger Play: Raindrops
Pitter-patter raindrops, falling from the sky.
(wiggle fingers to imitate falling rain)
Here is my umbrella, to keep me safe and dry.
(hands over head)
When the rain is over, and the sun begins to glow,
(make large circle with arms)
Little flowers begin to bud;
(cup your hands together)
and grow and grow and grow.

Finger Play with Wrist Ribbons: Spring Wind Blows 
The spring wind blows this way and that,
Oops! Watch Out! There goes my hat.
(wave hands above head)

The spring wind blows round and round.
It blew my hat across the ground.
(move arms in a rolling motion)

The spring wind blows. Spin, spin, spin!
Oops, it blew my hat again!
(move hands in a circular upward motion)

The spring wind blew left and right.
Then it blew my hat out of sight!
(move hands to the left, then right and wave bye, bye)

Poem with Parachute: Five little Birdies 
One little birdie flew and flew,
along came another one and that made two.
One… Two…

Two little birdies, busy as could be,
Along came another one and that made three.
One… Two… Three…

Three little birdies wanted one more,
Along came another one and that made four.
One… Two… Three.. Four…

Four little birdies glad to be alive,
Along came another one and that made five.
One… Two… Three… Four… Five…

Five little birdies flying very high,
Flapping wings and soaring, up in the sky.

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 eyes,
Wave you hand and say “Goodbye!”
