Wave and sing hello
Stomp and sing hello.

Action Rhyme: We Can Jump

We can jump, jump, jump
We can hop, hop, hop
We can clap, clap, clap
We can stop, stop, stop
We can nod our heads for yes
We can shake our heads for no
We can bend our knees a little bit
And we can sit down really slow

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)

Action Rhyme: Bend and Stretch

Bend and stretch up so high,
Stand on tiptoe, touch the sky (stretch and reach as high as you can)
Bend and stretch and see me grow, (bend and stretch)
I’m so tall from head to toe! (touch head and feet)

Felt Board: Five Little Owls

Five hoot owls sitting in a tree
One flew away! How many do you see?
One, two, three, four.
Four hoot owls sitting in a tree
One flew away! How many do you see?
One, two, three.
Three hoot owls…etc.

Action Song: Clap, Tap, Bend

I take my little hands and go clap, clap, clap I take my little hands and go clap, clap, clap
I take my little hands and go clap, clap, clap
Clap, clap, all day long.
I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap
I take my little feet and go tap, tap, tap
Tap, tap, all day long.
I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend
I take my little knees and go bend, bend, bend
Bend, bend all day long.

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
