My Fingers Song

(To the Tune of the Mulberry Bush)

This is the way my fingers play
fingers play, fingers play
 This is the way my fingers play
so early in the morning

This is the way my fingers sleep
fingers sleep, fingers sleep
This is the way my fingers sleep
so early in the morning

This is the way my fingers wave
fingers wave, fingers wave
this is the way my fingers wave
so early in the morning

Shape Up or Exercise Song

(tune of Farmer in the Dell)

We are jumping up and down
We are jumping up and down
We're getting lots of exercise
We jumping up and down

We bend and touch our toes
We bend and touch our toes
We're getting lots of exercise
We bend and touch our toes.

We kick legs up high
We kick our legs up high
We're getting lots of exercise
We kick our legs up high

We reach up to the sky
We reach up to the sky
We're getting lots of exercise
We reach up to the sky

Moving Song (Tune of Jingle Bells )

Clap your hands,stomp your feet, wiggle all around.
Reach your hands high in the air, and now let’s touch the ground.
Hold your head, hold your hips,
give yourself a hug.
sit down flat upon the ground, but watch out for the bugs.

Oh it’s time to say Goodbye

(Sung to she’ll be coming round the mountain.)
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye to our friends,
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye to our friends,
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye,
Make a smile and wink an eye.
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye to our friends.

Oh, it’s time to wave goodbye to our friends,
Oh, it’s time to wave goodbye to our friends,
Oh, it’s time to say goodbye,
Make a smile and wink an eye.
Oh, it’s time to wave goodbye to our friends

Monkeys Swinging in the Tree Song

(Tune of 5 little monkeys)
5 little monkeys swinging in the tree
(sway your hands in the air like a tree )
Teasing Mr. Alligator “can’t catch me!” can’t catch me!” (teasing tone with your fingers in your ears)
Along came Mr Alligator quiet as can be and SNAP! (use arms and hands like alligator jaws) that monkey right out of that tree. Continue countdown of monkeys to none.

Hands Up High

(Tune of London Bridges)
First we wave our hands up high,
Hands up high, hands up high
First we wave our hands up high,
Then we clap them.

Then we shake our hands down low,
Hands down low, hands down low,
Then we shake our hands down low, Then we hide them.

Mr Sun

Oh mister sun, sun, Mister golden sun,
Please shine down on me.
Oh mister sun, sun, Mister golden sun,
Hiding behind the tree.
These little children are asking you,
To, please , come out so we can play with you ,
Oh, mister sun, sun, mister golden sun
Please shine down on
Please shine down on
Please shine down on me.
