Where is Thumbkin?
Where is Thumbkin? (Hide hands behind back)

Here he is, (Bring out one hand, thumb up)
Here he is. (Bring out other hand, thumb up)
Mighty glad to see you, (Wag one thumb at the other)

I Went to Visit the Farm
I went to visit the farm one day,
I saw a cow along the way.
And what do you think I heard it say?
Moo, moo, moo.
I went to visit the farm one day,
I saw a duck along the way.
And what do you think I heard it say?
Quack, quack, quack.

Ten Little Firemen
Ten little firemen, sleeping in a row (hold child on lap)
Ding-dong! Goes the bell (give child gentle shake/tickle)
Down the pole they go (run fingers down child’s back or slide down legs)

Jack Be Nimble
Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack jump over the candlestick
Jack be nimble
Jack be spry
Jack jump over the apple pie
Jack be nimble
Jack jump high
Jack fly up into the sky

Five Little Ducks
Five little ducks went out one day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck said, “Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!”
But only four little ducks came back.

Last verse:
Sad Mother duck went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said, “Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!”
And all of the five little ducks came back.

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.
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.

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!”
