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 Wiggle
I wiggle my fingers,
I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my arms,
I wiggle my nose.
Now there are no more wiggles left in me,
Because it is time for the next story.

Song: We Wiggle and Wiggle and Stop
We wiggle and wiggle and stop
We wiggle and wiggle and stop
We wiggle and wiggle and wiggle and wiggle
And wiggle and wiggle and stop
We . . . wave, clap

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: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose
Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Knees and toes

Toes, knees, shoulders, head, shoulders, head
Toes, knees, shoulders, head, shoulders, head
Nose and mouth and ears and eyes
Toes, knees, shoulders, head, shoulders, head

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!”
