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: Touch
Touch your nose, touch your chin,
That’s the way this game begins.
Touch your eyes, touch your knees,
Now pretend you’re going to sneeze.
Touch your hair, touch one ear,
Touch your two red lips right here.
Touch your elbows where they bend,
That’s the way this touch game ends.

Action Rhyme: Wiggle Your Fingers
Show me how you clap your hands
Clap, clap, clap
Show me how you tap your feet
Tap, tap, tap
Clap, clap, clap
Tap, tap, tap
Wiggle your fingers and toes!
Show me how you nod your head
Nod, nod, nod
Show me how you flap your arms
Flap, flap, flap
Nod, nod, nod
Flap, flap, flap
Wiggle your fingers and toes!

Action Rhyme: Roly Poly
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Up Up Up
(roll fists and reach up)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Down Down Down
(roll fists and hit the floor)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Clap, Clap Clap
(roll fists and clap)
Roly Poly, Roly Poly, Lap, Lap, Lap
(roll fists and pat your lap)

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
