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 for the Ceiling
Reach for the ceiling
Touch the floor
Stand up again
Let’s do some more
Touch your head
Then your knee
Up to your shoulders
Like this you see
Reach for the ceiling
Touch the floor
That’s all for now
There isn’t any more

Scarf Song: Put Your Scarves in the Air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, now set them on your hair
Put your scarves in the air, in the air

Put your scarves on your knees . . . be sure not to sneeze
Put your scarves on your tummy . . . now rub it, nice and yummy
Put your scarves on the floor . . .now pick them up once more

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

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!”
