Song: Hi, Hello
Tune: London Bridge
Hi, hello and how are you?

Hi, hello and how are you?
How are you today?
Come along and clap with me . . .
Come along and sit with me . . .

Scarf Song: This Is the Way
This is the way we wash our face
Wash our face, wash our face
This is the way we wash our face
So early in the morning

Arms, legs, backs, tummies

Movement Rhyme: I Wiggle
I wiggle my fingers,
I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my arms,
I wiggle my nose.
Now there are no more wiggles left in me,
Because it is time for the next story.

 

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!”

Pile them up, pile them up.
Take a rake and pile them up,
All over town.

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.

Scarf Song: Autumn Leaves

Falling on the ground.
Autumn leaves are whirling round . . . Whirling all around
Raking up the autumn leaves . . . Then we toss them high!

Turn around,
Flap your arms,
Now sit right down.
Put your finger on your nose,
And wiggle it around,
Put your finger on your lips,
And make this sound, “Shh.”

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

The great big hairy spider . . .
The very slow spider
The very fast spider

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!”
