Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Rhyme: Hands on Shoulders
Hands on shoulders,
Hands on knees.
Hands behind you,
If you please;
Touch your shoulders,
Now your nose,
Now your hair and now your toes.
Hands up high in the air,
Down at your sides, and touch your hair;
Hands up high now as before,
Now clap your hands, 1-2-3-4.

Fingerplay: Ten Fingers
I have ten fingers (hold up both hands, fingers spread).
And they all belong to me, (point to self).
I can make them do things-
Would you like to see?

I can shut them up tight (make fists)
I can open them wide (open hands).
I can put them together (place palms together).
I can make them all hide (put hands behind back).

I can make them jump high (hands over head).
I can make them jump low (touch floor).
I can fold them up quietly (fold hands in lap).
And hold them just so.

Song: If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
-Stomp your feet
-Nod your head
-Blink your eyes
-Wiggle your hips
-Tap your toes
-Wave your hands
