Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side,
Then behind my back they hide.
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so,
Shake them fast, shake them slow.
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap,
Then I rest them in my lap.
Now they’re quiet as can be
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Fingerplay: Snowflakes, Snowflakes
Snowflakes, snowflakes dancing round, (Dance fingers around.)
Gently falling to the ground. (Wiggle fingers downward.)
See them drifting to and fro. (Sway fingers back and forth)
See them twirling fast, then slow. (Wiggle fingers in fast and slow circles.)
Snowflakes, snowflakes dancing round. (Dance fingers around.)
Gently falling to the ground. (Wiggle fingers downward.)

Song: Winter Hokey Pokey
You put your mittens in, you take your mittens out
You put your mittens in, and you shake them all about
You do the Winter Pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about!
You put your boots in, you take your boots out . . .
You put your hat in, you put your hat out . . .
You put your coat in, you put your coat out . . .
