Fingerplay: “Two Little Squirrels”
Two little squirrels sitting on a hill
One named Jack, the other named Jill
Run away Jack, run away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill

Modification of two little black birds rhyme (credit Storytime Katie)

Fingerplay: “This Little Squirrel”
This little squirrel said, “Let’s run and play!”
This little squirrel said, “Let’s hunt nuts today!”
This little squirrel said, “Yes, nuts are good.”
This little squirrel said, “Yes, my favorite food.”
This little squirrel said, “Come climb this tree.” (run fingers up other arm, quickly)
And crack these nuts: one, two, three! (clap hands three times)

Song: If your happy and you know it
If your happy and you know it

Clap your hands

If your happy and you know it

Clap your hands

If your happy and you know it then your face will surely show it

If your happy and you know it clap your hands

Stomp your feet

Shout Hooray

 Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
(Tune: London Bridge is Falling Down)
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Eyes, and ears and mouth and nose.

Head, shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider (make spider with fingers)

The Itsy Bitsy spider
Climbed 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
Climbed up the spout again.
