Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Hello in Different Languages
Hello, hello friend,
Hello friend, hello!

Olá, olá amigo,
Olá amigo, olá!

Rhythm Stick Song: Rhyme from Argentina
We first chanted this rhyme in English and then repeated the rhyme in Spanish.

Caracol, -col, -col,
Saca tus cuernos al sol,
Saca uno, saca dos,
Caracol, -col, -col.

Snail, -ail, -ail.
Take your horns out in the sun.
Take out one, take out two.
Snail, -ail, -ail.

Song: It’s Time to Say Goodbye
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends. (clap, clap)
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends. (clap, clap)
Storytime is done today,
So come again another day.
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends. (clap, clap)
