Airplanes: Fingerplay

smiling airplane in flight5 White and Shiny Planes
Words and Actions by CK Emanuel
To the tune of: 5 Green and Speckled Frogs

Five* white and shiny planes sitting on the long runway;
HOLD UP APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF FINGERS
MOVE FLAT HAND HORIZONTALLY
When pilots send their turbines spinning – Vroom! Vroom! Vroom!
MOVE ARMS IN A CIRCLE
One took off into the air, flying high above the clouds.
LIFT ARMS OVERHEAD
Now, there are four* shiny planes.
HOLD UP APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF FINGERS

*CONTINUE RHYME COUNTING DOWN UNTIL ALL PLANES HAVE FLOWN AWAY.

Kite: Fingerplay and Song

kiteLet’s Go Fly a Kite
Words and Music by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman
Actions by Mary Ryan

Let’s go fly a kite
GENTLY WAVE HAND IN THE AIR AS IF A KITE
Up to the highest height
RAISE BOTH HANDS OVERHEAD
Let’s go fly a kite
AS BEFORE
And send it soaring
LARGELY MOVE “KITE” HAND FROM SIDE TO SIDE
Up through the atmosphere
RAISE BOTH HANDS OVERHEAD
Up where the air is clear
STRETCH HANDS OUT TO BOTH SIDES
Oh, let’s go fly a kite!
AS BEFORE
