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.

Fingerplay: Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side,
Then behind my back they hide.
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so,
Shake them fast, shake them slow.
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap,
Then I rest them in my lap.
Now they’re quiet as can be
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Song: Put Your Scarves in the Air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, now set them on your hair
Put your scarves in the air, in the air

Put your scarves on your knees . . . be sure not to sneeze
Put your scarves on your tummy . . . now rub it, nice and yummy
Put your scarves on the floor . . .now pick them up once more

Movement Rhyme: Reach and Wiggle
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your eyebrows, wiggle your nose.
Put your bottom on the floor,
Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

Song: BINGO
There was a farmer, had a dog and BINGO was his name-o
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
And BINGO was his name-o!

There was a farmer had a dog and BINGO was his name-o
(clap) I-N-G-O
(clap) I-N-G-O
(clap) I-N-G-O
And BINGO was his name-o!

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!”
