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: Way Up High
Way up high in the Winter sky
(raise hands above head)
Two little snowflakes caught my eye.
(point up)
Down to the ground they fell without a sound,
(flutter hands down to the ground)
But before very long, it was snowing all around!
(turn in circle with hands fluttering)

Rhyme: 5 Little Snowmen
Five Little Snowmen standing round my door.
This one melted and then there were four.
Four little snowmen beneath a green pine tree,
This one melted and then there were three.
Three little snowmen with caps and mittens blue.
This one melted and then there were two.
Two little snowmen standing in the sun,
This one melted and then there was one.
One little snowman started to run.
But he melted away and then there was none.

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!”
