Rise and Shine

Dr. Jean

Tune: “Rise and Shine”
Rise and shine and welcome to school today.
Rise and shine and welcome to school today.
Rise...and shine...and welcome to school today.
We’re so glad you’re here.

Name, Name

Name, name,
What's your name? (Child answers)
I've got a name
And you've got a name
What's your name? (Everyone says the child's name.)

Nombre, nombre

Nombre, nombre,
¿cuál es tu nombre?
(el niño responde)
Yo tengo mi nombre
y tú tienes tu nombre
¿Cuál es tu nombre? (todos dicen el nombre del niño o la niña)

Magic Pointer

Cut a palm-size star from blue poster board. Use tape to attach the star to a long drinking straw or to the cardboard tube from a coat hanger. Add glitter to the star for a little extra magic or use your imagination to give it some zing!

Hands and Fingers

Pam Schiller
Tune: “Michael Finnigan”
Hands up, hands down,
Hands twirling round and round.
Fingers up and fingers down,
Fingers dancing on the ground.

Dance your fingers through the air,
On your knees and in your hair.
Dance your fingers here and there,
Dance your fingers everywhere.

Hide your hands between your knees,
Fly them out like buzzing bees.
Behind your back, one, two, three,
Where, oh where can your fingers be?

Bring those fingers back in sight,
Fly them left and fly them right.
Around and around and around they go,
Now place them in your lap just so.
