Itsy Bitsy February!

Here are the songs and rhymes we are playing with this month!

Finger Rhyme: “My Heart”

I put my hands together, (put palms together, fingers up)
This is how I start,
I curve my fingers right around, (curl fingertips of each hand toward each other to form heart shape)
And I can make a HEART!
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)

March – SPRING!

Finger Rhyme: “Here is a Bunny”

Here is a bunny with ears so funny
(make fingers into bunny ears)

(use other hand to make an ‘o’ shape)
When a noise he hears,
He pricks up his ears,
And he jumps in the hole in the ground!
(Put bunny ear hand into the hole in your other hand)
