Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Sleeping Bunnies
See the little bunnies sleeping
‘Til it’s nearly noon?
Shall we wake them with a merry tune?
Oh, so still. Are they ill?
Wake up little bunnies!
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop

Song – Jim Gill’s “Five Finger Play

Five Plump Peas
Five plump peas in a peapod pressed
(press two fists together)
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest
(fingers gradually pop up from fist)
They grew and they grew and they never stopped
(slowly spread hands farther & farther apart)
They grew and grew until the peapod popped
(bring hands together with a big clap!)

Here is a Beehive
Here is the beehive
But where are the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
Soon they’ll come creeping out of the hive.
One! Two! Three! Four! Five!
BZZZZZZ!!!!!
Back in the hive bees!

Song – Laurie Berkner’s “Monster Boogie 

If You are Wearing Red
(If You’re Happy and You Know It)
If you are wearing red, shake your head
If you are wearing red, shake your head
If you are wearing red
Then please shake your head
If you are wearing red, shake your head
If you are wearing blue, touch your shoe
If you are wearing green, bow to the queen
If you are wearing yellow, shake like Jell-O
If you are wearing black, pat your back
If you are wearing brown, turn around

 Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as high as we can
Good-bye! (in high, squeaky voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as low as we can
Good-bye! (in a deep voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as fast as we can
Good-bye! (very quick)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as slow as we can
Good-bye! (very slowly and drawn out)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as quiet as we can
Good-bye! (in a whisper)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as loud as we can
GOOD-BYE! (yelling)

Early Literacy tip: Writing requires strength in the fingers and hands. Squeeze objects, practice fingerplays, and color with crayons, chalk, sticks in the sand –  anything to get those fingers moving!
