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: Reach and Wiggle
Reach for the ceiling
Lift your arms way up high,
Wave them, wave them in the sky.
Reach way down and touch your toes.
Wiggle your elbows, 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.

Scarf Song: We Wave Our Scarves Together
Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain
We wave our scarves together (3 times)
Because it’s fun to do
We wave them up high
We wave them down low
We wave them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do

We throw our scarves together (3 times)
We throw them up high
We throw them down low
We throw them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do

Movement Rhyme: Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands
Clap them all around.
Clap them loud, then clap them soft
Now don’t make a sound.

Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet
Stamp them all around.
Stamp them loud, then stamp them soft
Now don’t make a sound.

Sit, sit, sit back down
Sit back on the ground.
Open your arms, now tuck them in
Now don’t make a sound.

Song: Jenny Works With One Hammer
Jenny works with one hammer
One hammer, one hammer
Jenny works with one hammer
Jenny works with two

Jenny works with five hammers . . . Jenny’s work is done!

Song: Looby-Loo
Chorus:
Here we go looby-loo
Here we go looby-light
Here we go looby-loo
All on a Saturday night
(Sing twice)

You put your right hand in
You take your right hand out
You give your hand a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about
(Left hand)

Chorus
Right leg, left leg
Chorus
Head, whole self

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!”

Can you guess the color?

And that color is – Blue!

But please don’t be slow.
It’s the color of sunshine,
And that color is – Yellow!
Can you guess the color?
It’s a color that you’ve seen.
It’s the color of the tall grass,
And that color is – Green!
Can you guess the color?
Can you guess just right?
It’s the color of a fluffy cloud,
And that color is – White!
Have you guessed the colors?
Did you guess each one?
I hope you guessed the colors,
Because now this rhyme is done.

A monkey came and bought it –
And now, there are four

Three funny winter hats
One is big and blue
An elephant just bought it
And now, there are two

Four funny winter hats
The stripey one should please
A snake just bought it –

The straw one’s good for sun
A frog came and bought it

One funny winter hat
It’s very, very small
A mouse came and bought it
The last one of all.

My poor little kitten lost her mitten

My poor little kitten lost her mitten
And started to cry, Boo-Hoo.
So I helped my kitten to look for her mitten,
Her beautiful mitten of BLUE  (so we need to help kitten find her mitten!)

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under my Mother’s bed.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored RED.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under my father’s pillow.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored YELLOW.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
On the hand of my brother’s toy clown.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored BROWN.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under the laundry so clean
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored GREEN.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Inside a grocery bag.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored BLACK.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Under the kitchen sink.
But, alas, the mitten was not the right mitten
For it was colored PINK.

I found a mitten just right for a kitten
Inside my favorite shoe
And this time the mitten was just the right mitten
For it was colored BLUE!

On my neck…(scarf)

 

The Winter Song (tune: Farmer in the Dell)

Let’s sing a winter song,
Let’s sing a winter song,
The days are short, the nights are long.
Let’s sing a winter song.

The winter wind is cold,
The winter wind is cold,
It freezes noses, ears, and toes.
The winter wind is cold.

Winter now is here,
Winter now is here,
Put on your coat, your hat, your gloves,
Winter now is here.
