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: Ten Fingers
I have ten fingers
And they all belong to me,
I can make them do things-
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight
I can open them wide
I can put them together
I can make them all hide
I can make them jump high
I can make them jump low
I can fold them up quietly
And hold them just so.

Song: Jump Up, Turn Around
Jump up
Turn around
Clap your hands
Stomp the ground

Arms up
Eyes closed
Really slow
Really fast
Holding breath

Song: Hands Are Clapping (Tune of: Skip to My Lou

Hands are clapping
Clap, clap, clap
Hands are clapping
Clap, clap, clap
Hands are clapping
Clap, clap, clap
Clap your hands, my darling

Toes are tapping, tap, tap, tap…
Fingers are wiggling, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle…
Eyes are hiding, peek-a-boo…

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
