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.

We’re Going on a Treasure Hunt
We’re going on a treasure hunt, (walk in place)
We’re going to find a treasure! (peer with hand shading eyes)
In a great big chest (hold hands apart)
buried deep in the ground (mime shoveling).
Look on the map!
It’s the ocean.
Can’t go under it, can’t go around it, can’t go above it,
better paddle across it! (mime paddling with an oar.)’s tall island grass! (brush the grass aside with your arms.)
…it’s coconut trees! (dodge the coconuts by jumping side to side.)
…it’s quicksand! (lift knees high as you walk through it.)
…it’s the X! Let’s dig up the treasure. (mime shoveling.)
Wait, do you hear something? Aaarrr
It’s scary pirates!!
Quick, run back through the quicksand, dodge the coconuts,
swish through the grass, paddle to the boat…
now point the cannon at the pirates, and light the fuse Ffffhhhhshh. Ka-boom!
…uh oh. I think we blew up the treasure too!

Jack in the Box
Jack in the box sits so still (scrunch up scarf in your hands, with just a little sticking out)
Will he come out? (pause to build suspense)
Yes! He will! (throw scarf in the air)

Open Them, Shut Them
Open and shut them, open and shut them (open and shut both hands)
Give a little clap, clap, clap (clap hands three times)
Open and shut them, open and shut them
Put them in your lap (lay hands flat on your legs)
Creep them, creep them (creep them up legs and body)
Creep them, creep them
Right up to your chin
Open up your little mouth (open mouth and hold fingers outside of mouth)
But do not let them in! (shake finger ‘no’)
Open and shut them, open and shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap
And put them in your lap

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
(Tune: Frère Jacques)
Goodbye friends, goodbye friends
Sing this tune, sing this tune,
It’s time to wave goodbye,
it’s time to wave goodbye
See you soon, see you soon.

Goodbye friends, goodbye friends
Close your eyes, close your eyes
Take a deep breathe in… (breathe in instead of repeating this line)
Now breathe out goodbye… (breathe out instead of repeating this line)
