Rhymes & Songs

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

Animal Sounds (to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”)
The ducks say, quack, quack.
The ducks say, quack, quack.
Heigh-ho, the Derry-oh,
The ducks say quack, quack!

The cows say, moo, moo.
The cows say, moo, moo.
Heigh-ho, the Derry-oh,
The cows say, moo, moo!!

Five Little Scarecrows
5 little scarecrows by the old barn door,
(hold up 5 fingers)
One went home and then there were four.
(Bend down thumb.)
4 little scarecrows by the old oak tree,
One went home and then there were three.
(Bend down pointer finger.)
3 little scarecrows with nothing to do,
One went home and then there were two.
(Bend down middle finger.)
2 little scarecrows out in the sun,
One went home and then there was one.
(Bend down ring finger.)
1 little scarecrow all alone through the day,
He scared the crows and then all flew away.
(Wiggle little finger.)

Bubble Hop and Stop
1 bubble, 2 bubbles, 3 bubbles, hop!
4 bubbles, 5 bubbles, 6 bubbles, hop!
7 bubbles, 8 bubbles, 9 bubbles, hop!
10 bubbles float down, time to stop.
