Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Fingerplay: Five Little Flowers
Five little flowers (Hold up five fingers)
Standing in the sun
See their heads nodding (Make fingers nod)
One by one. (Make fingers bow)
Out comes the sun
Down falls the rain, (Flutter fingers downward)
And the five little flowers
Lift their heads again! (Hold up five fingers)

Fingerplay: One Potato, Two Potato
One potato, two potato, three potato, four (Form hands into fists and stack one over the other)
Five potato, six potato, seven potato, more!
Eight potato, nine potato, ten potato then…
Eleven potato, twelve potato, do it all over again!

Puppet Rhyme: Something in My Garden
There’s something in my garden – what can it be?
There’s something in my garden that I can’t really see.
Hear its funny sound….

Ribbit, ribbit – a FROG is what I found!
Buzz, buzz – a BEE is what I found!
Chirp, chirp – a BIRD is what I found!
Munch, munch – a RABBIT is what I found!
Wiggle, wiggle – a CATERPILLAR is what I found!
