Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Action Rhyme: Swing Swing

Swing, swing, swing your arms.
Swing them just like this.
Swing, swing, swing your arms.
Swing them both and stop.

March, march, march your feet.
March them just like this.
March, march, march your feet.
March them now and stop.

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle your fingers.
Wiggle them just like this.
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle your fingers.
Wiggle then make them stop.

Action Rhyme: The Grand Old Duke of York

The grand old Duke of York
He had 10,000 men
First he marched them UP the hill (stand up)
Then he marched them DOWN again (crouch down)
And when you’re UP your up (stand up)
And when you’re DOWN your down (crouch down)
And when you’re only half-way UP (crouch half-way)
You’re neither UP nor DOWN (stand up then sit down)

 

Song: Jump Up Turn Around

Jump up
Turn around
Clap your hands
Stomp the ground

Hands in the air
Eyes closed
Really Slow
Really Fast
Holding Breath

 

Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands
Clap clap
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands
Clap clap
If you’re happy and you know it
And you really wanna show it
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands
Clap clap

Stomp feet
Shout hooray
Do all three

Prop Song: The Hokey Pokey

You put your right foot in
You take your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

Left Foot
Right Hand
Left Hand
Whole Self
