SONGS TO GET THE WIGGLES OUT

SHAKE MY SILLIES OUT
MP3 download: from Raffi’s Singable Songs Collection

Gotta shake, shake, shake my sillies out
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out
And wiggle my waggles away

I gotta clap my crazies out….
I gotta jump my jiggles out…..
I gotta stretch my stretchies out…..
I gotta yawn my sleepies out…..
I gotta shake my sillies out…..

JUMPING AND COUNTING
from Jim Gill’s Irrational Anthem Album
This one is always a hit!  This song teaches counting (practice counting to 10), following directions (waiting while counting), and gets kids moving (lots of jumping).

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, Jumping high are we.
But we’ll stop jumping, while we count to three.
1 – 2 – 3

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, Jumping even more.
But we’ll stop jumping, while we count to four.
1 – 2 – 3 – 4

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, Just like pogo sticks.
But let’s stop jumping, while we count to six.
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, Jumping then we wait.
We stop our jumping, while we count to eight.
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8

Jump, Jump, Jump, Jump, Jumping once again.
But we’ll be finished, once we count to ten.
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 9 – 10
Now you can jump back into your seats!

PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR
A silly little rhyme/chant I wrote to get the wiggles out. Use this between books, when you need your group to get up and move for a few seconds before sitting down to listen quietly again.

Put your hands in the air like trees.
Move them like they’re swaying in the breeze.

Put your hands on your thighs.
Put your hands out wide.
Now swing them from side to side.

Make your hands go ’round (roll hands)
Put your hands on the ground.
Now, everybody sit back down!
