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: First You Stretch High
First you stretch high, then you stretch low
Next you stretch wide, then you stretch narrow
Stretch to the left, stretch to the right
Stretch really fast, stretch really slow
Everybody wave hello, show me a smile
And we’re ready to go
Let’s begin our storytime show

Movement Rhyme: I Clap My Hands
I clap my hands
I touch my feet
I jump up from the ground

I clap my hands
I touch my feet
I turn myself around

I clap my hands
I touch my feet
I sit myself right down

I clap my hands
I touch my feet
I do not make a sound.
Shhhh!

Song: We Wiggle & Wiggle & Stop
We wiggle and wiggle and stop
We wiggle and wiggle and stop
We wiggle and wiggle and wiggle and wiggle
And wiggle and wiggle and stop
We tap and we tap and we stop
We tap and we tap and we stop
We tap and we tap and we tap and we tap
And we tap and we tap and we stop
We . . . wave, twirl
Can also use clap, shake, bounce, jump, stomp

Song: If You’re Ready for a Story
If you’re ready for a story, clap your hands
If you’re ready for a story, clap your hands
If you’re ready for a story, if you’re ready for a story
If you’re ready for a story, clap your hands
Nod your head
Rub your tummy
Sit so still

Song: Hat, Scarf, Parka, Boots
Hat, scarf, parka, boots, parka, boots
Hat, scarf, parka, boots, parka, boots
In wintertime we wear snowsuits!
Hat, scarf, parka, boots, parka, boots

Boots, parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat
Boots, parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat
In wintertime we dress like that!
Boots, parka, scarf and hat, scarf and hat!

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!”
