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.

The Elevator Song (To the tune of Do Your Ears Hang Low)
Oh, the city is great and the city is grand (Stand up and dance with a bouncy step)
There are lots of tall buildings
On a little piece of land
We live way up on the fifty-seventh floor
And this is what we do
When we go out the door
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down (3 times)
Then we spin around (spin around)

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.”

Hello Friends
Hello friends,
Hello Friends.
Hello friends,
It’s time to say hello.
(For this song we learned the signs for “Hello” and “Friends.” Please click here for a video.)

Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
I can put them together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump up high,
Or make them go low.
I can fold them up quietly,
and sit just so!
