Songs & Rhymes

Rhymes:

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Eating a fresh-baked pie
He put in his thumb
And pulled out a plum,
And said, “What a good boy am I!”

I eat my peas with honey.
I’ve done it all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps them on the knife.

If all the world were apple pie,
And all the sea were ink,
And all the trees were bread and cheese,
What should we have to drink?

Song:

Tune: Skip to my Lou

Pop a little pancake into the pan,
Pop a little pancake into the pan,
Pop a little pancake into the pan,
That’s for my dinner today!

Shake on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake
Shake on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake
Shake on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake
That’s for my dinner today!

Drop on some honey with a drip, drip, drip,
Drop on some honey with a drip, drip, drip,
Drop on some honey with a drip, drip, drip,
That’s for my dinner today!

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.

Fingerplay: Five Little Cats
One little cat on a sunny day
Put on his hat and went out to play
Two little cats when the sky turned dark
Put on their hats and went to the park
Three little cats when the sky turned blue
Put on their hats and went to the zoo
Four little cats by the kitchen door
Put on their hats and went to the store
Five little cats on a sunny day
Put on their hats and they all ran away.

Movement Rhyme: We Can
We can jump, jump, jump,
We can hop, hop, hop,
We can clap, clap, clap,
We can stomp, stomp, stomp.
We can nod our heads for yes,
We can shake our heads for no.
We can bend our knees a tiny bit,
And sit down slow…
