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: Five Little Cats
One little cat on a sunny day
Put on his hat and went out to play
Two little cats when the sky turned dark
Put on their hats and went to the park
Three little cats when the sky turned blue
Put on their hats and went to the zoo
Four little cats by the kitchen door
Put on their hats and went to the store
Five little cats on a sunny day
Put on their hats and they all ran away.

Movement Rhyme: We Can
We can jump, jump, jump,
We can hop, hop, hop,
We can clap, clap, clap,
We can stomp, stomp, stomp.
We can nod our heads for yes,
We can shake our heads for no.
We can bend our knees a tiny bit,
And sit down slow…
