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. 

Movement Rhyme: 

Raise your hands above your head,
Clap them one, two, three,
Rest them now upon your hips,
Slowly bend your knees.
Up again and stand up tall,
Put your right foot out.
Shake your fingers,
Nod your head,
And twist yourself about.
Wiggle your whole body now,
Kindly take a bow,
Stand up straight,
Plant your feet,
And quietly take a seat.

Song: with props
 
Put a spiral over here and a spiral over there
Put a spiral on your ear and a spiral in your hair
Put a lot of little spirals in the air everywhere
It’s a spiraly kind of day.
Hurray!
Make a wave over here and a wave over there
Make a wave on your toes and a wave on your nose
Make a lot of little waves in the air everywhere
It’s a wavy kind of day.
Hurray!

Movement Rhyme:
Frogs jump, Sloths lump
Worms wiggle, Bugs jiggle
Rabbits hop, Horses clop
Snakes slide, Seagulls glide
Mice creep, Deer leap
Puppies bounce, Kittens pounce
Lions stalk, But I walk.

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!”

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

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

Fingerplay: Little Ducks
I saw a little duck go hop, hop, hop.
(hop three times)
I told the little duck to stop, stop, stop.
(hold up hand for stop)
I went to the window to say, “How do you do?”
(hold out hand for handshake)
He wagged his little tail and far away he flew!
(shake tail and fly away)

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.

Five little ducks, went out to play
Over the hills, and far away,
When the mother duck went “Quack Quack Quack”
Four little Ducks came waddling back.
Continue to count down until there are no little ducks then sing:
No little ducks went out to play, Over the hills and far away, When the father duck went “QUACK, QUACK, QUACK”, Five little ducks came waddling back

Songs & Rhymes

Rhyme: The Itsy Bitsy Spider
The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out popped the sun and dried up all the rain.
And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

The great big spider….

The teeny tiny spider….

Rhyme: One Little Pig went out to Play

One Little Pig Went out to Play
In a huge mud puddle one day.
She found it such enormous fun,
That she called for another little pig to come.
Two little pigs went out to play,
In a huge mud puddle one day.
They found it such enormous fun,
That they called for another little pig to come.
Three little pigs went out to play,
In a huge mud puddle one day.
The mud went whoosh, the mud went splat,
And all of a sudden they all fell flat.

Rhyme: Raindrops Falling
sung to “Frere Jacques”

Raindrops falling,
Raindrops falling,
From the sky,
From the sky.
Put up an umbrella,
Put up an umbrella,
Nice and dry,
Nice and dry.

Showers over,
Showers over,
Sun aglow,
Sun aglow.
See the pretty flowers,
See the pretty flowers,
In a row,
In a row.

Rhyme: Rain on the Green Grass

Rain on the green grass
(flutter fingers down to ground)
And rain on the trees
(Flutter fingers up over head)
Rain on the Housetop,
(Make an upside-down “V” with hands and arms over head)
But not on me.
(Circle arms over head to make an umbrella)

Rhyme: First a Little Drop pf Rain Hits the Ground

Sung to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It

First a little drop of rain hits the ground.
Then another drop of rain hits the ground.
Then another and another and another and another,
And pretty soon you’ll hear a different sound. SPLASH! SPLASH!

You put your mittens in, you take your mittens out
You put your mittens in, and you shake them all about
You do the Winter Pokey and you turn yourself around

You put your boots in, you take your boots out . . .
You put your hat in, you put your hat out . . .
You put your coat in, you put your coat out . . .
