Reach down low
Take a breath (pause)

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Action Rhyme: Follow Me

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.

Fingerplay: Touch

Touch your nose, touch your chin,
That’s the way this game begins.
Touch your head, touch your knees,
Now pretend you’re going to sneeze:
Ahh-Choo!

Movement Rhyme: Wiggle

I can wiggle my fingers
I can wiggle my toes
I can wiggle my shoulders
I can wiggle my nose.
No all my wiggles are out of me
(wiggle whole body)
And I can sit as quiet as can be.

 

Rhyme: Snowflakes

Snowflakes, snowflakes, dance around.
(Dance fingers)
Snowflakes, snowflakes, touch the ground.
(Touch floor)
Snowflakes, snowflakes, in the air,
(flutter fingers upward)
Snowflakes, snowflakes, everywhere.
(Flutter fingers outward)

Song: Jump Up, Turn Around

Jump up
Turn around
clap your hands
Stomp the ground

Slow, fast, Eyes closed, Arms up, holding breath

Action Rhyme

Let your hands go clap,
(clap)
Let your fingers go snap,
(snap)
Let your lips go up and down,
(open and close mouth)
But do not make a sound.
(Shake head)
Fold your hands and close your eyes,
(fold hands, close eyes)
Take a breath and softly sigh.
(Inhale deeply, then exhale with a sigh)
