Fingerplays and Rhymes

Joe The Bunny
Tune: "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little bunny, my name is Joe.
(hold up two fingers)
I hop fast and I hop slow.
(hop fingers around fast and slow)
Whenever I get sleepy, my ears droop low,
(bend fingers down)
But after my nap, up they go!
(hold fingers straight up)

Hippety Hop
(do as a fingerplay, a flannel board, or act out with 5 children. )

Hippety hop and hippety hay,
Five little bunnies went out to play.
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
One little bunny hopped away.

Four little bunnies...
Three little bunnies...
Two little bunnies...
One little bunny...

Hippety hop and hippety hay,
No more bunnies are playing today.
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
I hope they come back another day.

Funny Bunny

Here is a bunny (Raise two fingers keeping fingers slightly bent at first knuckle.)
With ears so funny
And here is a hole in the ground. (Make hole with fingers of other hand.)
At the first sound she hears,
She pricks up her ears (Straighten fingers.)
And pops right into the ground. (Put fingers in hole.)

Sensory Table

Add cotton balls to the sensory table, include scoops and measuring cups.

Purchase packs of Easter grass and add to the sensory table. Add plastic berry baskets or plastic tubs.

Movement

Sleeping Bunnies
(do as a motion song)

See the bunnies sleeping till it's nearly noon
Shall we wake them
with a merry tune?
They're so still, are they ill
Wake up, little bunnies!
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop

Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop.
hop, hop, hop

Skip little bunnies, skip, skip, skip.
Jump little bunnies, jump, jump, jump.
