Itsy Bitsy February!

Finger Rhyme: “My Heart”

I put my hands together, (put palms together, fingers up)

This is my heart,
It goes beat, beat (clap hands on the word “beat”)
It pumps the blood when I’m asleep (rest head on hands)
It pumps the blood when I jump up and down, (jump!)
It pumps the blood when I run around, (slap hands on knees)
It pumps the blood when I move my feet, (stomp feet)
It pumps the blood when I tip-toe to my seat! (Sh finger)

(Put bunny ear hand into the hole in your other hand)
