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:

It’s time to sit on the floor;
It’s time to sit on the floor.
It’s time to sit on the floor
And clap your hands!

It’s time to clap like this;
It’s time to clap like this.
It’s time to sit on the floor
And clap like this!

Movement Rhyme (with ribbons): 

We spin our ribbons together
We spin our ribbons together
We spin our ribbons together
because it’s fun to do.

Spin them up high
Spin them down low
Spin them in the middle
Because it’s fun to do.

Movement Rhyme:

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle around.
Stop! Don’t make a sound.

Ears to listen, eyes to see,
Lock your lips. Hide the key.

Hands in your lap, one and two,
Now I have a story for you.

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!”

And each one will be a lovely butterfly! (wiggle fingers)

There was a little caterpillar crawling all about.
He worked and he worked without a doubt.

Wrapping himself in a snug cocoon.
Waiting and waiting, will it be soon?

Look, he’s coming out, my oh my!
For now he’s become a beautiful butterfly.

After a bath I try, try, try To rub myself dry, dry, dry.

And two wet legs and a shiny nose.
Just think, how much less time I’d take,
If I were a dog, and could shake, shake, shake.

Song: Head Shoulders Knees and Toes
Wash your head, shoulders,

Five elephants in the bathtub (hold up 5 fingers)
Going for a swim
