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.

I’m A Little Airplane
(“I’m a Little Teapot” Tune)
I’m a little airplane,
In the Sky!
Here is my left wing
and here is my right
(reach one arm up at a time.)
First I speed to take off
(lean forward on tip toes)
Then I fly,
I tip my wings as I soar by
(tip from left to right)

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
Zoom Zoom Zoom, We’re going to the moon.
Zoom Zoom Zoom, We’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip,
Climb aboard my rocket ship,
Zoom Zoom Zoom, We’re going to the moon.
5,4,3,2,1–BLAST OFF!

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)

Opening Song: 

IF YOU’RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

Stomp your feet, Shout hooray, Take a seat

Clap Your Hands 
Clap, clap, clap you hands,
Clap your hands together.
Clap, clap, clap your hands,
Clap your hands together.
Stomp your feet – Tap  your toes – Blink your eyesBeep your nose 
Pull your ears – Reach the sky – Clap your hands

Put Your Hands Up High

Put your hands up high,
put your hands down low,
Put your hands in the middle and wiggle to and fro.
Put your elbows in the front, put your elbows in the back,
Put your elbows in the middle and say “quack, quack, quack!”

Closing Song:

We Wave Goodbye Like This
Tune: Farmer in the Dell
We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye like this.
We clap our hands for all our friends.
We wave goodbye like this.

Rhyme – Two Little Black Birds

Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away Jack, flay away Jill.
Come back Jack, come back Jill.

Two little blackbirds flying in the sky.
One named Low and one named High

Two little blackbirds sitting on a pole.
One named Fast and one named Slow…

Two little blackbirds sitting on a gate.
One named Early and one named Late…

Thanks For Visiting! Hope to see you all next week.
