Five Little Kittens standing in a row
They nod their heads to the children so
They run to the left, they run to the right
They stand up and stretch in the bright sunlight
Along comes a dog, who’s in for some fun
M-e-oooow, see those kittens run!

Finger Rhyme: Color Rhyme

If your clothes have any red,
Put your fingers on your head.
I your clothes have any blue,
Put your fingers on your shoe.
If your clothes have any green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If your clothes have any yellow
Smile like a happy fellow.
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind you back
And chores must be done.
If your clothes have any white,
Stomp your feet with all your might

Song: I See Rainbows (tune of Frere Jacques)

I see rainbows,
I see rainbows,
Way up high
In the sky.

They are red and orange,
Yellow, green and blue.
Purple, too.
What a view!

I see rainbows,
I see rainbows,
Way up high
In the sky.

They are made of sunshine,
Shining through the rain.
What a view
In skies so blue!

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song:  I Know a Cat
(tune:Bingo)
I know a cat with perky ears,
and Kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y.
And Kitty is her name-o.

She makes a sound and it’s “Meow,”
and Kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y,
and Kitty is her name-o.

And when she’s happy she loves to purr,
and Kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y,
and Kitty is her name-o.

Movement Rhyme: What do animals do?
Roar, roar, roar like a lion at the zoo.
Woof, woof, woof like a dog would do.
Swish, swish, swish like a squid in the sea.
Fly, fly, fly like a bird flying free.
Moo, moo, moo like a cow in the barn.
Hop, hop, hop like a frog on the farm.
Meow, meow, meow like a cat in the sun.
Sit, sit, sit to show me you’re done.

Movement Song: Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o’er your shoulder
Like a continental soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

Flannel Board: 5 Little Puppie
s
Five little puppies were playing in the sun.
This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run.
This one saw a ladybug, and he began to race.
This one saw a pussycat, and he began to chase.
This one tried to catch his tail, and he went round and round.
This one was so quiet, he never made a sound.

Fingerplay: After a Bath
After my bath, I try, try, try
To wipe myself ‘til I’m dry, dry, dry.
Hands to wipe, and fingers, and toes,
And two wet legs and a shiny nose.
Just think, how much less time I’d take,
If I were a dog, and could shake, shake, shake.

Fingerplay: Some Dogs
Some dogs bark.
Some dogs growl.
Some dogs yip.
Some dogs howl.
Some dogs wiggle their tails!
