Opening Songs

Welcome, Welcome, Everyone

(Tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”)

Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now you’re here we’ll have some fun.
First we’ll clap our hands just so,
Then we’ll bend and touch our toes.
Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now you’re here  we’ll have some fun.

These are my Glasses

(Sung without CD; from Laurie Berkner: Whaddaya Think of That?)

These are my glasses (make glasses with your fingers)
This is my book (hands pressed together)
I put on my glasses (put on the glasses)
And open up the book (open your hands)
Now I read read read (hold out the “book”)
And I look look look (look through the glasses)
I put down my glasses )put hands down and…
clap hands together)
Close up my book!

And reach up high

Wave bye-bye!
