Fingerplays:

We Can Jump (make motions match words)

We can jump, jump, jump.

We can hop, hop, hop.

We can clap, clap, clap.

We can stop, stop, stop.

We can shake our heads for “yes”.

We can shake our heads for “no”.

We can bend our knees a little bit,

And sit down slow.

Tommy Thumbs Up

Tommy Thumb’s up and Tommy Thumb’s down, (point thumbs up, then down)

Tommy Thumb’s dancing all around the town, (point thumbs up and bounce them around)

Dance them on your shoulders, (tap thumbs on shoulders)

Dance them on your head, (tap thumbs on head)

Dance them on your knees, (tap thumbs on knees)

And tuck them into bed! (tuck thumbs into fists)

Here We Go Up

Here we go up, up, up, (stretch up)

Here we go down, down, down, (bend down)

Here we go forward, (step forward)

Here we go backward, (step backward)

Here we go round and round. (turn around in a circle)
