Shake My Sillies Out by Raffi

Jumping and Counting by Jim Gill

The Hokey Pokey

You put your right hand in, you put your right hand out

You put your right hand in and you shake it all about

You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around

That’s what its all about

…left hand

…right foot

…left foot

…whole self

Tommy Thumbs Up

Tommy thumbs up (raise thumbs up)

And Tommy thumbs down (raise thumbs down)

Tommy thumbs dancing all around the town (move arms side to side)

Dance them on your shoulders (tap them on shoulders)

Dance them on your head (tap them on head)

Dance them on your knees (tap them on knees)

And tuck them into bed (say quietly, tuck thumps into fist)

(repeat while jumping)

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes (place hands on each body part)

Knees and toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

Eyes and ears and mouth and nose

Head, shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

(repeat going faster and then slower)
