Bounces, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Chook Chook
Chook, chook, chook, chook, chook, clap
Good morning, Mrs. Hen. How many chickens have you got?
Madam, I’ve got ten. hold up ten fingers
Four of them are yellow. hold up four fingers on left hand
And four of them are brown. hold up four fingers on right hand
And two of them are speckled red, hold up thumbs
The nicest in the town. hold arms out wide

Dickery Dare
Dickery dickery dare bounce on knees
The pig flew up in the air lift child up
The man in brown soon brought him down bring down
Dickery dickery dare bounce on knees

Ten Galloping Horses
Ten galloping horses rode through the town
Five were white and five were brown
Five rode up and five rode down
Ten galloping horses rode through the town

Bumping Up and Down by Raffi
Bounce the babies along to the song on your knee or on their feet. When the wagon tips over we lean to the side.
Five Green Apples by Sharon, Lois, and Bram
I have done this with felt apples and real apple by taking them away when the song indicates.
Grey Squirrel by MaryLee Sunseri
Grey Squirrel works great with shaky eggs.
Jenny Jenkins by Sharon, Lois, and Bram
Another great bounding song. We’ve also taken the scarves out to wave around with the song.
