Fingerplays and Rymes

Here are some simple fingerplays and rhymes you can try at home with your child. This week's theme is dragons!

5 Green Dragons
Five green dragons making such a roar.
One danced away and then there were four.
Four green dragons dancing around a tree.
One danced away and then there were three.
Three green dragons dancing around you.
One danced away and then there were two.
Two green dragons dancing in the sun.
One danced away and then there was one.
One green dragon having lots of fun
She danced away and then there were none.

Five Little Dragons
One little dragon with scales of blue;
Ran to meet the green one,
And then there were two.
Two little dragons sitting under a tree;
The red dragon joined them,
And then there were three.
Three little dragons, wishing there were more;
Along came the purple dragon,
And then there were four.

Four little dragons, happy to be alive;
Found a yellow dragon,
And then there were five.
Five little dragons all out to play;
“Watch out, they breathe fire,” is all I have to say.

 

Little Dragon
Little dragon counts to three. Little dragon bends one knee.
Little dragon whistles and sings. Little dragon flaps his wings.
Little dragon touches his toes, Little dragon scratches his nose.
Little dragon makes a funny face, Little dragon runs in place.
Little dragon lays ont he floor. Little dragon starts to snore.

 

Fly Dragon, Fly [Tune: "Skip to My Lou" ]

Fly, fly, dragon fly. Fly, fly, dragon fly.
Fly, fly, dragon fly. Way up in the sky
Hop, hop, dragon hop. Hop, hop, dragon hop.
Hop, hop, dragon hop, stop dragon stop!
Turn, turn, dragon turn. Turn, turn, dragon turn.
Turn, turn, dragon turn. Sit, dragon, sit!
