Books: 
Potato Joe (Baker)
Blocks (Dickson) 

Hello everybody and how are you? potato joe
How are you, how are you? 
Hello everybody and how are you? 
How are you today?

Who’s that, tapping at my window, 
Who’s that, knocking at my door? 
Abby, knocking at my window, 
Michael, knocking at my door. 

A turkey ran away 
Before Thanksgiving Day 
“For they will make a feast of me If I should stay.”

A potato ran away 
Before Thanksgiving Day 
“For they will make a feast of me if I should stay.”

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes 
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes 
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose, 
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes 

Hana hana hana kuchi 
Kuchi kuchi kuchi mimi
Mimi mimi mimi Me! 
(Nose nose nose mouth; 
Mouth mouth mouth ear; 
Ear ear ear eye!) [Japanese] 

Chugalugalug and a toot toot toot
Chugalugalug and a toot toot toot 
Chugalugalug and a toot toot toot 
Hear that train a-coming. 
Little blue engine sure can roll . . . (3x) 
She drinks water, she eats coal. 

Stand on the hill and I wave my hand . . . (3X) 
I want to ride with the railroad man.

Wish I was in that red caboose (3x) . . . 
And they never would turn me loose 
There she goes around the bend. . . (3x) 
Tomorrow she’ll be back again.

Shake your shaker just like this 
Just like this, just like this 
Shake your shaker, just like this 
Shaking, you and me. 
Stretch up high . . . 
Shake it low now . . .
Turn around now . . .

You put your Shaker in 
You put your Shaker out 
You put your shaker in 
And you shake it all about 
You do the Shakey Pokey 
And you turn yourself around 
That’s what it’s all about! 
Up...down... shake it all around 
Near...far... drive them like a car 
Here...there...everywhere

There are bubbles in the air, in the air 
There are bubbles in the air, in the air 
There are bubbles in the air, 
There are bubbles everywhere, 
There are bubbles in the air, in the air … 
There are bubbles way up high, Way up high up in the sky … 
There are bubbles way down low, there are bubbles on your toe … 
There are bubbles way down low, there are bubbles on your toe … 

One little, two little, three little bubbles 
Four little, five little, six little bubbles 
Seven little, eight little, nine little bubbles 
Ten little bubbles go POP POP POP 
Pop, pop, pop, let’s pop those bubbles 
Pop, pop, pop, let’s pop those bubbles 
Pop, pop, pop, let’s pop those bubbles, at the library!

Pease porridge hot
Pease porridge cold 
Pease porridge in the pot 
Nine days old 
Some like it hot 
Some like it cold 
Some like it in the pot 
Nine days old. 
Turkey Bird HOT. . . in the oven

First you spread the peanut butter 
Then you spread the jam 
You put a slice of bread on top 
And eat up all you can 
You take your sticky fingers 
And you wipe them on your pants 
And you do a little wiggle 
For the peanut butter dance!

As I was walking down the street 
Down the street, down the street 
As I was walking down the street 
Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho 
A snowy babe I chanced to meet 
Chanced to meet, chanced to meet 
A snowy babe I chanced to meet 
Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho 
Rig a jig jig and away we go 
Away we go, away we go 
Rig a jig jig and away we go 
Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho

The more we get together 
Together, together 
The more we get together 
The happier we’ll be 
‘Cause your friends are my friends 
And my friends are your friends 
The more we get together 
The happier we’ll be! 
Sing—play—read!

Thanks for sharing stories and songs with me!

There are bubbles way up high, Way up high up in the sky … 
There are bubbles way down low, there are bubbles on your toe … 

(tune -- Frere Jacques) 
Hello Bubbles Hello Bubbles 
Come and land, come and land 
Right in the middle, right in the middle 
Of my hand, of my hand (call & response;

Way up high in the apple tree 
Two little apples smiled at me. 
I shook that tree as hard as I could Down came the apples! MMM!
They were good! 

Pop, pop, pop 
Put the corn in the pot 
Pop, pop, pop 
Shake it 'til it's hot 
Pop, pop, pop

Little leaves fall gently down 
Orange and red, yellow and brown 
Whirling whirling round and round 
Down, down, down! 
Pease porridge hot 
Pease porridge cold 
Pease porridge in the pot 
Nine days old 
Some like it hot

Nine days old. 
PIZZA PIE HOT. . . in the box

First you spread the peanut butter 
Then you spread the jam 
You put a slice of bread on top 
And eat up all you can 
You take your sticky fingers 
And you wipe them on your pants 
And you do a little wiggle
For the peanut butter dance!

I’m stretching very tall Aint going to paint2
And now I’m very small 
Now tall Now small 
Now I’m a tiny ball

The happier we’ll be 
‘Cause your friends are my friends 
And my friends are your friends 
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be! Sing—play—read!

The giraffe is as tall as tall can be 
He eats the leaves right off the tree 
His neck is long, his legs are too; 
And he can run faster than me or you!

Shake them high, low, behind our backs, 
fast, slow, in a circle...

I’m gonna shake, shake,

Who’s that tapping on my window
Who’s that, knocking on my door 
Bobby, tapping on my window 
Nika, knocking on my door 

Here is my book 
I open it wide 
To see the pictures
That are inside 

This little pig had a rub-a-dub dub thislittle
This little pig had a scrub-a-scrub scrub 
This little pig-a-wig ran upstairs 
This little pig-a-wig called out “Bears!” 
Down came the jar with a loud slam 
And this little pig had all the jam. 

If you're happy and you know it, 
Shake your egg 
If you're happy and you know it, 
Shake your egg
If you're happy and you know it, 
and you really want to show it 
If you're happy and you know it, 
Shake your egg 
Shake it high, low, 
Behind our backs, fast, slow, in a circle… 

I know a chicken (I know a chicken)
And she laid an egg (echo) 
Oh I know a chicken 
And she laid an egg 
Oh my goodness 
It's a shaky egg! 
Shake 'em fast!...... 
Add another way to shake (slow, up and down, all around, soft, loud, etc.) I’m gonna shake, shake, shake my sillies out,

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out, Wiggle my waggles all away 
Stretch, yawn, jump, clap
