Five little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Four little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close his eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Three little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Two little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close his eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

One little caterpillar wiggling on a leaf,
She falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

No more caterpillars, no more leaves!
Five little butterflies floating on the breeze.

Nursery Rhyme Finger Play - Five Little Caterpillars by Alina Celeste, YouTube

I have ten little fingers, 
And they all belong to me. 
I can make them do things,
Do you want to see? 

I can close them uptight,
I can open them wide.
I can put them together
I can make them hide. 

I can make them fly high, 
I can make them go low. 
I can fold them like this and hold them just so.

Hints and Tips:

  • Do the actions for each line.

We learned our A, B, C's

And counting 1,2,3's

And now we know all these.

We learned how to share

We learned how to care

Just ask us if you dare

The Kindergarten Class

It seems we've just begun
And now we are almost done.
This year's been so much fun!

Now we must say so long

With this, our little song

But we'll be back 'fore long.

Addams Family Graduation Song Lyrics, Cheyenne Wells, 06 May 2015

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

I wanna celebrate and graduate,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

Cause we gonna rock this school,
We will do it right, we will graduate,
Cause we're dynamite!

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice,
We will graduate, cause we're dynamite!

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

I wanna celebrate and graduate,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

Cause we gonna rock this school,
We will do it right, we will graduate,
Cause we're dynamite!

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice,
We will graduate, cause we're dynamite!

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

I wanna celebrate and graduate,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

Cause we gonna rock this school,
We will do it right, we will graduate,
Cause we're dynamite!

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice,
We will graduate, cause we're dynamite!

Hints and Tips: 

  • With the instrumental in the middle, make up a simple dance for the children to do. 
  • Can be played and sung while children receive their "graduation certificates". 
  • Each child can have a go dancing one by one during instrumental, while others clap along. 
  • Make up simple actions.
  • There is another version of this song without the instrumental in between (available on YouTube).

Barely a year ago,
We're only this tall,
That's what people say
That's what people say

Kinder was a blast,
It went by so fast
I'll miss it that's for sure
I'll miss it that's for sure

My friends are cute as it can be
My teachers are crazy for me at (add your service)

In first grade, saying...
It's gonna be all right!
But I did grow up up up up up
I'm ready to move on on on on on

Ready for first grade, first grade, first grade...
First grade, first grade!

Now I love to write
Watch me I can read
It is so much fun!
It is so much fun!

My friends are cute as it can be
My teachers are crazy for me at (add your service)

In first grade, saying...
It's gonna be all right!

But I did grow up up up up up
I'm ready to move on on on on on

I'm ready for first grade, first grade, first grade...
First grade, first grade!

Hints and Tips:

  • Lyrics need to be changed to suit Preschoolers e.g. I'm ready for Kindy.
