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 (Tune of Do Your Ears Hang Low)
Oh the city is great, oh the city is grand.
There are lots of tall buildings
On a little piece of land.
We live way up on the 57th floor,
And this is what we do
When we go out the door:
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down,
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down,
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down,
Then we spin around!
(Repeat faster)

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.”

Movement Rhyme: Dance Your Fingers Up
Dance your fingers up,
dance your fingers down
Dance your fingers to the side,
dance them all around.
Dance them on your shoulders,
dance them on your head
Dance them on your tummy,
and put them all to bed

Hello Friends
Hello friends,
Hello friends.
Hello friends,
It’s time to say hello.

This Little Light of Mine
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

Won’t let anyone blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine
Won’t let anyone blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine
Won’t let anyone blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
