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.

Fingerplay: 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 our shoulders, dance them on your head
Dance them on your tummy, and put them all to bed.

Song: The Elevator Song
Tune: 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
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
And we turn around

Song: 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.
Yes, I’ve seen a fishy swim this way and that.
Swim this way and that way,
And this way and that way.
Yes, I’ve seen a fishy swim this way and that

Fingerplay: Open Them, Shut Them
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Give a little clap
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Put them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin
Open your mouth, but don’t let them in!
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Put them in your lap.

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!”
