Shake them shake them shake them (shake)

’til they POP (Toss scarves up into the air)

Tortillitas (Place the scarf in between your hands and slap it back and forth like you are making tortillas. This is a rhyme, so there isn’t an actual tune for it.)

Tortillitas para mamá

Tortillitas para papá

Las calientitas para mamá

Transition Song/ Rhyme:

Everybody Take a Seat (I don’t usually do the lyrics that mention a chair, only the floor part)

Tune: Shortnin’ Bread

Everybody take a seat, take a seat, take a seat,

Everybody take a seat on the floor.

Everybody take a seat, take a seat, take a seat,

Everybody take a seat on the floor.

Not on the ceiling, not on the door!

Everybody take a seat on the floor.

Not on the ceiling, not on the door!

Everybody take a seat on the floor.

Everybody take a seat, take a seat, take a seat,

Everybody take a seat on your chair.

Everybody take a seat, take a seat, take a seat, Everybody take a seat on your chair.

Not on the ceiling, not on the stairs!

Everybody take a seat on your chair.

Not on the ceiling, not on the stairs!

Everybody take a seat on your chair.

First Book – Book of your choice

Diez Deditos (Ten Little Fingers)

Dos manitas, diez deditos,

dos manitas, diez deditos,

dos manitas, diez deditos,

cuéntalos conmigo.

Uno, dos, tres deditos,

cuatro, cinco, seis deditos,

siete, ocho, nueve deditos,

y uno más son diez.

 

Saco Una Manita ( you can say manita or manito depending what version of the song you use)

Saco una manita la hago bailar,

La cierro, la abro y la vuelvo a guardar

Saco otra manita la hago bailar,

La cierro, la abro y la vuelvo a guardar

Saco las dos manitas las hago bailar,

Las cierro, las abro y las vuelvo a guardar.

Book Two- Book of your choice

Los Pollitos Dicen – There are different versions of this song that have many more verses. I stick to just the main verses. 

Los pollitos dicen

“Pío, pío, pío”

Cuando tienen hambre

Cuando tienen frío.

La mamá les busca

El maíz y el trigo,

Les da la comida

Y les presta abrigo.

Bajo sus dos alas,

Acurrucaditos,

Hasta el otro día,

Duermen los pollitos.

Goodbye Song:

Adios Amigos- Tune of Are you sleeping?

Adios Amigos,

Ya me voy

Me dio mucho gusto

Estar con ustedes

Adios
