Morning: Fingerplay

Up the Sun Rises
Words and Actions Adapted by CK Emanuel
Based on the traditional folksong: Drunken Sailor

Sun.Moon.ClockChorus: (To be sung before each verse)
Way, hay, up she rises,
MOVE ARMS TO THE RIGHT, THEN LEFT, THEN OVERHEAD
Way, hay, up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Early in the morning!
TAP WRIST AS IF WEARING A “WATCH”

Verses:
What will we do with the sleepy moonlight,
HANDS OUT TO SIDES, PALMS UP
HANDS TOGETHER, AT SIDE OF CHECK AS IF SLEEPING
What will we do with the sleepy moonlight,
What will we do with the sleepy moonlight,
Early in the morning?
TAP WRIST AS IF WEARING A “WATCH”

Wave goodbye so the sun can come after,
WAVE ; HANDS TOUCH OVERHEAD CRATING A “CIRCLE”
Wave goodbye so the sun can come after,
Wave goodbye so the sun can come after,
Early in the morning.
TAP WRIST AS IF WEARING A “WATCH”
