“Trucks” by Laurie Berkner, Victor Vito

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Movement Activity: Jack-in-the-Box
I’m Jack-in-the-box
I’m Jack-in-the-box
I crunch so very low
Turn the handle
Round and round and up I go
I’m Jack-in-the box
I’m Jack-in-the box
Just turn the handle and up I pop

Rhyme: My Favorite Toys
I have a lot of favorite toys.
I cannot choose just one.
I need to keep them all around
For different kinds of fun.

A book, a doll,
A drum, a ball,
And, of course my teddy bear.
A wagon, a trike,
And finally I like
The jack-in-the-box sitting there.

As you can see I need them all
For work and play and rest.
When you go home to find your toys,
Which ones do you like best?

Fingerplay: I am a Top
I am a top all wound up tight (clasp hands tightly together)
I whirl and whirl with all my might (make hands spin around each other quickly)
And now the whirls are out of me (stop whirling)
So I will rest as still as can be (fold hands)

Movement Activity: I Have a Dear Little Dolly
I have a dear little dolly
Who has eyes of bright blue (point to eyes)
She can open and shut them (blink)
And she smiles too (smile)
In the morning I dress her
And she goes out to play (index and middle fingers of one hand walk on open palm)
But I like best to rock her
At the end of the day (pretend to rock doll in arms)

Song: Shake Your Shaker
Shake your shaker in the air, shake it here, shake it there.
Shake your shaker in the air, shake your shaker.
Shake it high and shake it low, shake it yes, shake it no.
Shake it high and shake it low, shake your shaker.
Shake it up and shake it down, rub your shaker on the ground.
Shake it up and shake it down, shake your shaker.
Shake it near and shake it far, drive your shaker like a car.
Shake it near and shake it far, shake your shaker.
Shake it fast and shake it slow, shake it STOP, shake it GO.
Shake it fast and shake it slow, shake your shaker.

Sputter, Sputter, Sput  by Babs Bell

Music
Little Red Wagon by the Wiggles

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Clap and Sing Hello! (tune: Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We clap and sing hello!

We wave and sing hello
We wave and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

We stomp and sing hello,
We stomp and sing hello,
With our friends at storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

Sometimes
Sometimes my hands are at my side
Hold hands at side
Then behind my back they hide
Put hands behind back
Sometimes I wiggle my fingers so
Wiggle your fingers
Shake them fast, shake them slow
Shake fingers fast and slow
Sometimes my hands go clap, clap, clap
Clap hands
Then I rest them in my lap
Rest hands in lap
Now they’re quiet as can be.
Because it’s listening time, you see.

Drive, Drive, Drive (tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)
Drive, drive, drive your truck,
All around the town.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Up the hills and down.

Turn, turn, turn the key,
Make the engine roar,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Let’s go to the store.

Press, press, press the pedal,
Give the engine gas,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we’re going fast.

Turn, turn, turn the wheel,
That is how we steer.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Make a turn right here.

Push, push, push the brake,
Make the truck slow down.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we are in town.

We Can
We can jump, jump, jump,
We can hop, hop, hop,
We can clap, clap, clap,
We can stomp, stomp, stomp.
We can nod our heads for yes,
We can shake our heads for no.
We can bend our knees a tiny bit,
And sit down slow

Open Shut Them
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them up to your chin.
Open your mouth, but do not let them in!
Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap!
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands Clap! Clap

Stomp your feet
Blink your eyes
Wave goodbye!
