RHYMES AND FINGERPLAYS:

My Balloon

I had a big balloon (make circle with hands)
That I hugged tight to me (hug self tightly)
There was a great big BANG! (clap hands loudly)
No more balloon for me! (make a sad face)
But if I had this many more (hold up five fingers)
I wouldn’t hug them tight (shake head)
I’d just hold the strings (make fist)
And fly them like a kite. (pretend arm is being pulled up by balloons)

Sharing Toys Is Fun
(tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

Look at all the toys we have,
Toys for me, toys for you (point to self and away)
Look at all the toys we have
Toys we can share.

I can bounce my ball with you,
Bounce to me, bounce to you (pretend to bounce a ball)
I can bounce my ball with you
Sharing is fun.

I can ride my bike with you,
Ride to here, ride to there (roll hands in pedaling motion)
I can ride my bike with you
Sharing is fun.

I can dress up dolls with you
Try on this, try on that (pretend to hold up doll clothes)
I can dress up dolls with you
Sharing is fun.

I can build my blocks with you,
Build it up, knock it down (pretend to build a block tower and
I can build my blocks with you knock it down)
Sharing is fun.

I can drive my trains with you
On the track, here and back (make train wells motions with arms)
I can drive my trains with you
Sharing is fun.

I can fly my kite with you
Fly it high, fly it low (pretend to hold up a kite)
I can fly my kite with you
Sharing is fun.

We can have a tea party
With our toys, you and me (pretend to sip tes from a cup)
We can have a tea party
Sharing is fun.

I like to share my toys with you
We can play, every day (point to all your toys)
I like to share my toys with you
Sharing is fun.
