Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: The More We Get Together
The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

Movement Rhyme: Hands
Hands upon your head,
Hands upon your head.
Up and down and up and down,
Hands upon your head.

Hands upon your face,
Hands upon your face.
Up and down and up and down,
Hands upon on your face.

Hands upon your ears. . .

Hands upon your knees . . .

Song: Put Your Scarves in the Air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, now set them on your hair
Put your scarves in the air, in the air

Put your scarves on your knees . . . be sure not to sneeze
Put your scarves on your tummy . . . now rub it, nice and yummy
Put your scarves on the floor . . .now pick them up once more

Movement Rhyme: My Wiggles
I wiggle my fingers
I wiggle my toes
I wiggle my shoulders
I wiggle my nose
Now all my wiggles are out of me
And I’m just as still as can be

Song: Elevator Song
Tune: Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Oh the city is great, oh the city is grand
There are lots of tall buildings on a little piece of land
We live way up on the 57th floor
This is what we do when we go out the door
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
And we turn around
