Music

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Clap Your Hands
Clap your hands, clap your hands, clap them just like me.
Touch your shoulders, touch your shoulders, touch them just like me.
Tap your knees, tap your knees, tap them just like me.
Shake your head, shake your head, shake it just like me.
Fold your hands, fold your hands and let them quiet be.

Song: Fingerplay: This is the Way We Plant Our Seeds
(tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we plant our seeds,
Plant our seeds, plant our seeds.
This is the way we plant our seeds,
Early in the morning.
(Sprinkle seeds on ground)

This is the way the wind does blow,
Wind does blow, wind does blow.
This is the way the wind does blow,
Early in the morning.
(Blow and wave arms in front of you)

This is the way the rain comes down,
Rain comes down, rain comes down.
This is the way the rain comes down,
Early in the morning.
(Flutter fingers down)

This is the way the sun shines bright,
Sun shines bright, sun shines bright.
This is the way the sun shines bright,
Early in the morning.
(Make circle with arms above head)

This is the way the flowers grow,
Flowers grow, flowers grow.
This is the way the flowers grow,
Early in the morning.
(Stand fingers up from fists)   

Finger Play: I’m a Seed
I’m a seed that’s in the ground
I get sunshine and water
I grow a stem, two leaves and then
Pop! I’m a flower!

Finger Play: 10 Little Bunnies 
1 little, 2 little, 3 little bunnies,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little bunnies,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little bunnies,
10 little bunnies hopping all around.

Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Bunnies hopping all around.

10 little, 9 little, 8 little bunnies.
7 little, 6 little, 5 little bunnies.
4 little, 3 little, 2 little bunnies.
1 bunny hopping all around.

Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Do a spin and sit back down!

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
