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 and Wiggle
Reach for the ceiling
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your elbows, wiggle your nose.
Put your bottom on the floor,
Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

Scarf Song: We Wave Our Scarves Together
Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain
We wave our scarves together (3 times)
Because it’s fun to do
We wave them up high
We wave them down low
We wave them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do

We throw our scarves together (3 times)
We throw them up high
We throw them down low
We throw them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do

Movement Rhyme: Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them all around.
Clap them loud, then clap them soft
Now don’t make a sound.

Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet
Stamp them all around.
Stamp them loud, then stamp them soft
Now don’t make a sound.

Sit, sit, sit back down
Sit back on the ground.
Open your arms, now tuck them in
Now don’t make a sound.

Song: Jenny Works With One Hammer
Jenny works with one hammer
One hammer, one hammer
Jenny works with one hammer
Jenny works with two

Jenny works with five hammers . . . Jenny’s work is done!

Song: Looby-Loo
Chorus:
Here we go looby-loo
Here we go looby-light
Here we go looby-loo
All on a Saturday night
(Sing twice)

You put your right hand in
You take your right hand out
You give your hand a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about
(Left hand)

Chorus
Right leg, left leg
Chorus
Head, whole self

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!”
