SING/ RHYMES: 





Fingerplay: “Where Is Thumbkin?”
Where is thumbkin? Where is thumbkin? (put hands behind back)
Here I am! Here I am! (bring hands around from behind the back)
How are you today, sir? Very well, I thank you! (wiggle thumbs, one at a time)
Run away, run away! (hide hands behind back again)
(Repeat for each finger; I did leave out middle finger. It was too early in the morning and I feared I would burst into giggles.)

“Let’s Be Friends” (Tune: London Bridge)
Let’s be friends with one another
One another, one another
Let’s be friends with one another
Let’s be friends today
(You can sing with a friend, you can shout with a friend, you can hum with a friend, you can jump with a friend, you can clap with a friend, you can hop with a friend)

  Two Little Feet Rhyme
Two little feet go tap, tap, tap,   (tap feet)
Two little hands go clap, clap, clap.  (clap hands)
A quick little leap up from my chair,   (stand up)
Two little arms reach high in the air.   (stretch arms)
Two little feet go jump, jump, jump,   (jump)
Two little fists go thump, thump, thump.   (pound fists)
One little body goes round and round,   (twirl around)
And one little child sits quietly down.   (sit down)

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A FRIEND
Tune:  “If You’re Happy And You Know It”
If you want to make a friend, shake a hand.
If you want to make a friend, shake a hand.
If you want a friend that’s new, then say, “How do you do?”
If you want to make a friend, shake a hand.
                                                Jean Warren

Fingerplay: “Two Little Friends” 
(hold up fingers as you go)
Two little friends are better than one,
And three are better than two
And four are much better still
Just think! What four little friends can do!

If your happy and you know it
If your happy and you know it 
Clap you hands
If your happy and you know it 
Clap your hands
If your happy and you know then your face will surely show it
If your happy and you know it clap your hands
Repeat with:
Stomp your feet
Shout Hooray
