Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: I’m a Little Dump Truck
Adapted by Kapila S. Love and Sarah Northshield
(Sung to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot”)
I’m a little dump truck strong and stout (Make arm motions demonstrating strength and stoutness)
Hauling stuff around is what I’m about (Motion carrying things)
When I get all filled up the workers shout (Cup hands by mouth as if shouting)
Dump me over and pour me out (Tip to one side, or with arms outstretched and fingers inter¬laced, bend forward)

Movement Rhyme: Cranes
Cranes reach up,
Cranes reach down,
Cranes reach out,
And all around.
