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: Tap Your Head
Tap your head,
Tap your toe,
Turn in a circle,
And bend down low.
Tap your nose,
Tap your knees,
Hand on your shoulders,
Now, sit down please.

Song: ABCs
A B C D E F G
H I J K L M N O P
Q R S T U V
W X Y Z

Now I know my ABCs,
Next time won’t you . . .
Clap, Jump, Stomp
With me!

Song: Everyone Can Shake
Everyone can shake, shake, shake
Everyone can shake, shake, shake
Everyone can shake, shake, shake
And then we make a stop
Tap, wave

Movement Rhyme: Clap Your Hands
Clap your hands, clap your hands
Clap them just like me
Touch your shoulders, touch your shoulders
Touch them just like me
Tap your knees, tap your knees
Tap them just like me
Shake your head, shake your head
Shake it just like me.
Sit right down, sit right down
Sit right down like me.
Fold your hands, fold your hands
And let them quiet be.

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!”
