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.

Rhythm Stick Song: Tap Our Sticks
This is the way tap our sticks,
tap our sticks,
tap our sticks.
This is the way we tap our sticks
so early in the morning.
(rub, hammer, drum)

Movement Rhyme
If you listen and you hear me, go like this… (clap hands in rhythm)
If you listen and you hear me, go like this.
If you listen, you will hear me
‘Cause you’re sitting (or standing) really near me
If you listen and you hear me, go like this…

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!”

Fingerplay: Open Them, Shut Them
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Give a little clap
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Put them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin
Open your mouth, but don’t let them in!
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Put them in your lap.

But can you still be a quiet little child?
And sit as still as this?

Wave your tongue and wave your nose.

Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”

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
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your eyebrows, wiggle your nose.

Count with me: one, two, three four.
Clap your hands now: one, two, three,
Then fold them in your lap like me.

If you like music and you know it, play up high

Play down low
Spin around

Movement Rhyme: Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side,
Then behind my back they hide.
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so,
Shake them fast, shake them slow.
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap,
Then I rest them in my lap.
Now they’re quiet as can be
Because it’s listening time, you see.

 

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!”
