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.

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: Monsters Galore

Monsters galore, can you roar? (Roar.)
Monsters galore, can you soar? (Flying motions.)
Monsters galore, please shut the door. (Clap.)
Monsters galore, fall on the floor! (Sit/fall down.)

Action Rhyme: We Can

We can jump quickly
We can jump slowly
We can spin quickly
We can spin slowly
We can touch our feet with eyes that are open
We can touch our feet with eyes that are closed
We can stand up tall as a tree
And sit down on the floor

Action Rhyme: Monster Stomp

If you want to be a monster, now’s your chance.
‘Cause everybody’s doing the monster dance.
You just stamp your feet, wave your arms.(Stomp, wave arms.)
Stretch ‘em up, stretch ‘em up, (Stretch up arms.)
Then put them on the ground. (Put hands on the floor.)
‘Cause you’re doing the monster stomp. (Stomp feet.)
That’s right! You’re doing the monster stomp. (Stomp feet.)

Song: You Are My Monster

You are my monster,
My only monster.
You make me happy,
When I am sad.
You never know dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take
My monster away!

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
