Song: Marching Movement Song
We’re marching, marching, marching
We’re marching in a circle
We’re marching, marching, marching
Until it’s time to stop!
We’re jumping, jumping, jumping
We’re jumping in a circle,
We’re jumping, jumping, jumping
Until it’s time to stop!
We’re running . . . tiptoeing

Fingerplay: Five Plump Peas
Five plump peas in a pea pod pressed
One grew, two grew, and so did all the rest
They grew and they grew and they never stopped
They grew so big that the pea pod popped!

Song: Tell Me What Is On Your Plate
Two, four, six, eight
Tell me what is on your plate!

We’re gonna have some watermelon, hooray, hooray
We’re gonna have some watermelon, hooray, hooray
Watermelon for our dinner, watermelon every day
Watermelon, watermelon in our belliesHip hip hip hooray!

Tell me what is on your plate!

Song: Play Your Instruments
Tune: Frere Jacques
Play your instrument, play your instrument
One, two, three, one two three
Can you play a song, can you play a song?
Just like me, just like me
Play your instrument, play your instrument
Way up high, way up high
Now bend down, now bend down
Play down low, play down low

I Bounce You Here
I bounce you here
I bounce you there
I bounce you, bounce you
Everywhere!
I tickle you here . . .
I hug you here . . .

The Grand Old Duke of York
The grand old duke of York
He had 10,000 men
He marched them up
To the top of the hill
And marched them down again
And when they’re up, they’re up
And when they’re down
They’re down
And when they’re only halfway up,
They’re neither up nor down

Bicycle
I have a little bicycle, I ride it to and fro
And when I see that big green light
I know it’s time to go
I have a little bicycle, I bought it at the shop
And when I see that big red light
I know it’s time to stop!

Up in the Air
Up, up, up in the air like this.
Down, down, down
For a great big kiss.
Up like this, down for a kiss.
You’re my special baby! (big hug)

Did You Ever See a Fishy?
Did you ever see a fishy, a fishy, a fishy?
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that?
Swim this way and that way,
And this way and that way.
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that?

Yes, I’ve seen a fishy, a fishy, a fishy . . .
