Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Action Rhyme: 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 you’re up (stand up)
And when you’re DOWN you’re 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)

Fingerplay: How Do You Say Hi?

Hey! Hi! Howdy! Yo!
There are many ways to say hello!
Wave your hand.
Nod your head.
Smile big or wink instead.
Blow a kiss. Tip your hat.
Shake your hands.
Give a pat.
Of all the ways to say hello,
Here’s the way I like to go … HELLO!

Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re happy and you know it Clap your hands (clap your hands!)
If you’re happy and you know it Clap you hands (clap your hands)
If you’re happy and you know it
Then your hands should surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it Clap your hands!
