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: 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: Autumn Leaves
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Falling down, falling down!
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Falling on the ground.
Autumn leaves are whirling round,
Whirling round, whirling round!
Autumn leaves are whirling round,
Whirling all around
Raking up the autumn leaves,
Autumn leaves, autumn leaves
Raking up the autumn leaves,
Then we toss them high!

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: 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!”
