Songs, Poems and Finger Plays

Row Row Row Your Boat
A classic favorite. Try to teach the children how to do this song in rounds, where one group starts, and when they reach the second "Row, row, row.." the next group starts at the beginning.

The Rooster
(Tune: Pop! Goes The Weasel )
The rooster crows at the break of day.
To say the day is new.
We all know just what he'll say,
It's cock-a-doodle-doo!

I'm A Railroad Engineer
(Tune: Down By The Station )
Down at the station
Early in the morning,
See all the trains
Standing in a row.
I'm a railroad engineer,
I jump aboard my train.
Chug, chug, chug, chug
Off I go.

Rainbow Colors
(Tune: Hush, Little Baby)
Rainbow purple, rainbow blue,
Rainbow green and yellow too.
Rainbow orange, rainbow red,
Rainbow smiling overhead.

Rainbow Song
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
When the rain falls from the sky,
(Flutter fingers downward.)
Don't forget to look up high.
(Cup hand above eyes and look up.)
If the sun is shining there,
(Make a circle with arms above head.)
You may find a rainbow fair.
(Sweep arms in an arc above head.)
Red orange, yellow, green and blue.
And you'll see there's purple, too.

Ten Little Reindeer
(Tune: Ten Little Indians)
One little, two little, three little reindeer,
Four little, five little, six little reindeer,
Seven little, eight little, nine little reindeer,
Playing in the snow.

The Robot Song
(Tune: The Wheels On The Bus)
The arms of the robot swing up and down,
Up and down, up and down,
The arms of the robot swing up and down,
All around the room.

The legs of the robot move back and forth...
The head of the robot turns side to side...
The buttons on the robot blink on and off...
The voice of the robot says beep, beep, beep...

Rain Finger play
Rain on the green grass.
(Flutter fingers down to ground.)
And rain on the tree.
(Flutter fingers up over head.)
Rain on the housetop,
(Make upside down "V" with hand and arms.)
But not on me!
(Circle arms over head to make umbrella.)

(Tune: Row Row Row Your Boat)
Rain, rain falling down,
(Flutter fingers up and down.)
Landing all around.
(Move arms out to sides.)
What a lovely sound you make
(Cup hands behind ears.)
Splashing on the ground.
(Wiggle fingers up and down.)
