Songs & Rhymes

Open Song: Clap and Sing Hello

We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

Wave and sing hello
Stomp and sing hello.

Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

Stomp Your Feet
Shout Hooray!
Do All Three

Rhyme: My Eyes

My eyes can look left,
my eyes can look right,
my eyes can look ahead, and see the sights.
I can close my eyes,
I can blink, blink, blink,
I can flutter my eyelids,
I can give you a wink.
But of all the things my eyes can do,
the best is when they see a friend like you!

Fingerplay: Roly Poly

Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Up Up Up (roll fists and reach up)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Down Down Down (roll fists and hit the floor)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Clap, Clap Clap (roll fists and clap)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Lap, Lap, Lap (roll fists and pat your lap)

Fingerplay: This is Big

This is big, big, big (stretch hands far to sides)
This is small, small, small (cup hands together)
This is short, short, short (hold palms close vertically)
This is tall, tall, tall (hold palms far apart vertically)
This is fast, fast, fast (roll hands quickly)
This is slow, slow, slow (roll hands slowly)
This is yes, yes, yes (nod head)
This is no, no, no (shake head)

Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This

We wave goodbye like this
We wave goodbye like this
We clap our hands for all our friends
We wave goodbye like this
