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.

Little Ghosts
Little ghosts, little ghosts,
Flying through the air.
Little ghosts, little ghosts,
Tickling my hair.
Little ghosts, little ghosts,
Flying down low.
Little ghosts, little ghosts,
Tickling my toe.
Little ghosts, little ghosts,
Circling all around.
Little ghosts, little ghosts,
Please sit down. 

Movement Rhyme: Run in Place
Run in place,
Turn around,
Flap your arms,
Now sit right down.
Put your finger on your nose,
And wiggle it around.
Put your finger on your lips,
And make this sound, “Shh.”

The Itsy Bitsy Spider / The Roly Poly Pumpkin
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

(Variation)

Oh, the roly-poly pumpkin Went rolling down the hill.
Once it started rolling It couldn’t keep still.
It rolled and rolled Until it bumped into a rock.
Then the roly-poly pumpkin Rolled to a stop.

Five Fall Leaves Feltboard (Fingerplay, no tune)
(Can also be done using your five fingers as the leaves)
Five fall leaves, five and no more.
The caterpillar ate one, now there are 4.
Four fall leaves, that’s easy to see.
Along came a rainstorm, now there are 3.
Three fall leaves, nothing much to do.
A big wind, now there are 2.
Two leaves, that’s not much fun.
I glued one on my paper
Now there is 1.
Hang on pretty red leaf! Your branches won’t break.
You’re one less leaf for me to rake!
