June Babytime Rhymes

Up, down, Turn Around

Up, down, turn around

Touch the sky and touch the ground

Wiggle your fingers, wiggle your toes

Wiggle your shoulders, say, “Hello!”

 

The Grand Old Duke of York

Oh, the Grand Old Duke of York,

He had ten thousand men,

He marched them up to the top of the hill

And marched them down again! 

And when they were up, they were up,

And when they were down, they were down,

And when they were only halfway up

They were neither up nor down!

 

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

Humpty dumpty fell in a puddle. Humpty Dumpty needs a big cuddle!

 

I went to visit the farm (using illustrations from Eric Carle’s Very Busy Spider)

I went to visit the farm one day. I saw a (animal’s name) across the way.

And what do you think the (animal name) did say? (Make animal’s noise).

 

Mother & Father & Uncle Jon

Mother & Father & Uncle Jon went to town one by one.

Mother fell off (lean left) & Father fell off (lean right), but Uncle Jon went on & on & on & on!

 

10 Little Bubbles

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!

 

These are Baby’s Fingers (use your own baby’s name for “baby”)

These are baby’s fingers, these are baby’s toes,

This is baby’s belly button, round and round it goes!

 

This is Big, Big, Big!

This is big, big, big (hold arms out)

This is small, small, small (bring hands in)

This is short, short, short

This is tall, tall, tall

This is fast, fast, fast (circle fists quickly)

This is slow, slow, slow (circle fists slowly)

This is yes, yes, yes (nod)

This is no, no, no (shake head)

 

We Shake Our Eggs Together

We shake our eggs together, we shake our eggs together,

Because it’s fun to do.

Shake them up high.

Shake them down low.

Shake them in the middle!

 

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are!

 

Up, down, Turn Around

Up, down, turn around

 Touch the sky and touch the ground

 Jiggle your tummy, blink your eyes

Blow a kiss and say goodbye!
