Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Rhyme: Are You Wearing a Color?
If your clothes have any red,
Put your finger on your head.
If your clothes have any blue,
Put your finger on your shoe,
If your clothes have any green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If your clothes have any yellow,
Smile like a happy fellow,
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown,
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Stamp your feet with all your might.

Movement Rhyme:
Green says, “Go!” (march in place quickly)
Go! Go! Go!
Yellow says, “Slow!” (march slowly)
Slow . . . slow . . . slow
And red says, “Stop!” (stop suddenly)
Go, go, go! (move fast)
Slow . . . slow . . . slow (move slowly)
And STOP! (stop)

Rhyme: Can You Guess the Color?
Can you guess the color?
Is the answer in your head?
It’s the color of an apple,
And that color is – Red!
Can you guess the color?
Can your answer true?
It’s the color of the big sky,
And that color is – Blue!
Can you guess the color?
But please don’t be slow.
It’s the color of sunshine,
And that color is – Yellow!
Can you guess the color?
It’s a color that you’ve seen.
It’s the color of the tall grass,
And that color is – Green!
Can you guess the color?
Can you guess just right?
It’s the color of a fluffy cloud,
And that color is – White!
Have you guessed the colors?
Did you guess each one?
I hope you guessed the colors,
Because now this rhyme is done.
