Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: Grand Old Duke of York
(Start with slapping on knees)
The grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill (move your arms up)
And marched them down again. (move arms down)
And when they were up they were up. (move arms up)
And when they were down they were down. (move arms down)
And when they were only half way up, (move arms to middle)
They were neither up nor down. (move arms up and down)
(Repeat a little faster, then with standing up)

Fingerplay: Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
I can put them together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump up high,
Or make them go low.
I can fold them up quietly,
And sit just so!

Song: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
