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.

Movement Rhyme: I Wake Up My Hands
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap
A clap, clap, clap, a clap, clap, clap
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap
And I wiggle my waggles away
Feet – stomp, Eyes – blink, Head – nod, Belly – beep, Hips – shake

Song: A Counting We Will Go
A counting we will go
A counting we will go
1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
A counting we will go.
We’re counting as we . . . (clap, jump, march, spin)

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.”

Song: Twinkle, Twinkle
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Sign language version

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
Wave high, wave low,
I think it’s time, we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips,
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye,
Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”
