Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: With Our Families
Tune: “Mary Had a Little Lamb”

What does Michael like to do,
Like to do, like to do?
What does Michael like to do
With his family?
Michael likes to go on rides,
Go on rides, go on rides.
Michael likes to go on rides
With his family.
Sing the song for each of your children, substituting the child’s name for “Michael” and what the child likes to do for “go on rides.”

Fingerplay: My Family
This is mama, kind and dear. (point to thumb)
This is papa, standing near. (point to pointer finger)
This is brother, see how tall! (point to middle finger)
This is sister, not so tall. (point to ring finger)
This is baby, sweet and small. (point to pinky finger)
This is the family, one and all! (wiggle all fingers)

Song: Five Little Ducks
Five little ducks went out to play, over the hill and far away
Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
And only four little ducks came back
(count down until)
Sad mother duck went out one day, over the hill and far away
Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
And all of her five little ducks came back
