Songs, Rhymes and Fingerplays

Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
Put them all together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump high,
I can make them jump low.
I can fold them quietly,
And hold them all just so!

I Bounce You Here
I bounce you here, I bounce you there
I bounce you, bounce you everywhere
I tickle you here, I tickle you there
I tickle you, tickle you everywhere
I hug you here, I hug you there
I hug you, hug you everywhere

A Little Circle
A little circle
A bigger circle
A great big circle I see
Let us count the circles we made: 1, 2, 3!
Make the shapes with your hands – can use other shapes too (diamonds, triangles, rectangles)

Slowly Slowly
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (creep fingers up baby’s leg)
Creeps the little snail
Slowly, slowly, very slowly (arm)
Up the wooden rail
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (tickle all over)
Runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly, very quickly (dance fingers over tummy)
All around the house

Old MacDonald
Old MacDonald had a farm, EIEIEO
And on his farm he had a cow, EIEIEO
With a moo moo here, and a moo moo there
Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo, moo
Old MacDonald had a farm, EIEIO

Pig – Oink
Horse – Neigh
Sheep – Baa
Rooster – Cock-a-doodle-doo

Peekaboo
Peekaboo, peekaboo
I see you, I see you
I see your button nose, I see your tiny toes
I see you, peekaboo

Song: The More We Get Together
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: I Stretch My Hands
I stretch my hands way up high
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Then I stretch them way down low
To see how very far they’ll go.
I bend my knees, cross my feet
Lower my bum, and take a seat.

Song: The Elevator Song
Tune: Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Oh the city is great, oh the city is grand
There are lots of tall buildings on a little piece of land
We live way up on the 57th floor
This is what we do when we go out the door
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
And we turn around

Song: Put Your Scarves in the Air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Put your scarves in the air, now set them on your hair
Put your scarves in the air, in the air

Put your scarves on your knees . . . be sure not to sneeze
Put your scarves on your tummy . . . now rub it, nice and yummy
Put your scarves on the floor . . .now pick them up once more

Movement Rhyme: Run in Place
Run in place,
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.”

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!”
