Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: Ten Fingers
I have ten fingers (hold up both hands, fingers spread).
And they all belong to me, (point to self).
I can make them do things-
Would you like to see?

I can shut them up tight (make fists)
I can open them wide (open hands).
I can put them together (place palms together).
I can make them all hide (put hands behind back).

I can make them jump high (hands over head).
I can make them jump low (touch floor).
I can fold them up quietly(fold hands in lap).
And hold them just so.

Movement Rhyme: Number Fun
All the fives, dance the jive.
All the fours, knock on the floor
All the threes, shake their knees.
All the twos, paddle canoes.
All the ones, stand and run.
All the numbers look alive.

Guessing Game: Four Little Shapes
Tune: Five Green & Speckled Frogs
Four little shapes I’ll guess
I’ll try my very best
Can I guess each and every one?

Five points twinkling so bright
Shines in the sky at night
What do I think this shape is called?
A star!

Round like a toy truck wheel
A ball is placed with by a seal
What do I think this shape is called?
A circle!

I’m like a box or book
Four sides, just take a look
What do I think this shape is called?
A square!

Three corners and three sides
Shaped like a piece of pie
What do I think this shape is called?
A triangle!
