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)

Song: Autumn Winds (Tune of Ring Around the Rosie)

Autumn Winds begin to blow
Colored leaves fall fast and slow
Whirling Twirling all around
Till at last they touch the ground

Action Rhyme: Mirror Mirror

In my mirror I can see
Two little eyes that look at me. (Point to eyes)
Two little ears, one little nose, (point to ears and nose)
Ten little fingers, ten little toes. (wiggle fingers and toes)
One little mouth I open wide, (open mouth wide)
Two little rows of teeth hidden inside. (point to teeth)
A tongue that pops both in and out, (move tongue in and out)
Lots of joints that bend about (bend knees and elbows)
When I look in the mirror, what do I see
A beautiful person looking back at me!

Action Rhyme:Scarecrow

Scarecrow, Scarecrow, turn around.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, jump up and down
Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms up high
Scarecrow, Scarecrow, wink one eye
Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend your knee
Scarecrow, scarecrow, flap in the breeze
Scarecrow, scarecrow, climb into bed
Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your 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
