Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: Are You Wearing a Color?
If your clothes have any red,
Put your finger on your head.
If your clothes have any blue,
Put your finger on your shoe,
If your clothes have any green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If your clothes have any yellow,
Smile like a happy fellow,
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown,
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Stamp your feet with all your might.

Guessing Game: Can You Guess the Color?
Can you guess the color?
Is the answer in your head?
It’s the color of an apple,
And that color is – Red!
Can you guess the color?
Can your answer true?
It’s the color of the big sky,
And that color is – Blue!
Can you guess the color?
But please don’t be slow.
It’s the color of sunshine,
And that color is – Yellow!
Can you guess the color?
It’s a color that you’ve seen.
It’s the color of the tall grass,
And that color is – Green!
Can you guess the color?
Can you guess just right?
It’s the color of a fluffy cloud,
And that color is – White!
Have you guessed the colors?
Did you guess each one?
I hope you guessed the colors,
Because now this rhyme is done.

Song: Red Scarf Song
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Put your Red scarf in the air
Hold it high & leave it there.
Put your red scarf on your back
Now please lay it in your lap.
Hold your red scarf in your hand
Now everyone please stand.
Wave your red scarf at the door
Now please lay it on the floor.
Hold your red scarf and jump, jump, jump.
Throw your red scarf way, way up!
(change red to other colors and repeat)

There was a farmer had a dog and BINGO was his name-o
(clap) I-N-G-O
(clap) I-N-G-O
(clap) I-N-G-O
And BINGO was his name-o!
