Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Hello Song 

(Mary had a little lamb)
Everybody smile and wave,
Smile and wave,
Smile and wave.
Everybody smile and wave,
I’m so glad you’re here.

Fingerplay: 5 Funny Dinosaurs
 Five funny dinosaurs, letting out a roar,
One went away and then there were four.
Four funny dinosaurs, munching on a tree,
One went away and then there were three.
Three funny dinosaurs didn’t know what to do,
One went away and then there were two.
Two funny dinosaurs having lots of fun,
One went away and then there was one.
One funny dinosaur afraid to be a hero,
He (she) went away and then there were zero.

Song: All Around the Swamp
(to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”)

The Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap,
Flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap,
The Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap,
All around the swamp.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex went grr, grr, grr,
Grr, grr, grr, grr, grr, grr,
The Tyrannosaurus Rex went grr, grr, grr,
All around the swamp.

The Triceratops’ horns went poke, poke, poke,
Poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke,
The Triceratops’ horns went poke, poke, poke,
All around the swamp.

Additional Verses:
The brontosaurus went munch, munch, munch. The stegosaurs’ tail went spike, spike, spike.

The dinosurs went zzz, zzz, zzz,
Zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz,
The dinosurs went zzz, zzz, zzz,
All around the swamp.
Shhhhhhhh.

Rhyme: Dinosaurs went ot to Play (flannel) 

One dinosaur went out to play
On a giant fern one day
She had such enormous fun
That she called for another dinosaur to come:
Raise hands to cup mouth, and call loudly: Oh, Diiiiiiiiiinosaur!
Slap hands on thighs to make “running” sounds.

Two dinosaurs went out to play…
Three dinosaurs…
Four dinosaurs…

Five dinosaurs went out to play
On a giant fern one day
They had such enormous fun
That they played until the day was done!

Rhyme: Criss Cross

Criss, cross, applesauce              (draw an X on child’s back with fingers)
Spiders running up your back   (walk fingers up child’s back)
Cool breeze                                    (blow gently on back of child’s head)
Tight squeeze                                (give child a big hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers!       (tickle child gently all over

Movement: Big, Big, Big  

Big, big big
This is big big big
Hold arms out to side

This is small small small
Cup hands together

This is short short short
Hold hands with palms facing each other

This is tall tall tall
Reach one hand above head

This is fast fast fast
Circle fists quickly

This is slow slow slow
Circle fists slowly

This is yes yes yes
Nod

This is no no no
Shake head
