Favorite Outreach Fingerplays!

Five Fat Peas in a Peapod

Five fat peas in a pea pod pressed
(hold your hand in a fist)
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest
(put thumb and fingers up one by one)
They grew and grew
(raise hand in the air very slowly)
And they did not stop,
Until one day
The pod went POP!

(Clap on pop!)

 

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom,
We’re going to the moon.
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom,
We’re going very soon.
If you want to take a trip,
Step into my rocket ship.
Zoom Zoom, Zoom,
We’re going to the moon!
5, 4,3,2,1… BLASTOFF!

 

Tommy Thumbs

Tommy Thumbs are up (thumbs up)
and Tommy Thumbs are down. (thumbs down)
Tommy Thumb is dancing
all around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders,
dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck him into bed.

Oh Where Oh Where Has My Little Head Gone (Scarf Activity)

Oh where oh where has my little head gone,

Oh where oh where could it be?

Oh where oh where has my little head gone,

Oh where oh where could it be?

If I lift this scarf off of my head,

There is my head, NOW I SEE!

Foot, arm, belly

 

Fingerplay: Peel Bananas

Everyone stand up!

Bananas unite! (place hands together straight up over head)
Bananas split! (open arms and place at sides)

Pick bananas, pick, pick bananas (reach up and pick bananas from a tree)
Peel bananas, peel, peel bananas (peel a banana in your hand)
Smash bananas, smash, smash bananas (clap hands)
Eat bananas, eat, eat bananas (stuff banana in mouth and sing with mouth full)
Go bananas, go, go bananas! (do a crazy dance)

 

This is big big big…

This is big big big

This is small small small small

This is short short short short

This is tall, tall, tall

This is fast, fast fast

This is slow, slow, slow

This is yes, yes, yes

This is no, no, no
