Finger Rhymes

5 Little Ice Cream Cones
5 little ice cream cones so good to eat.
The first one said, “I’m a summer time treat,”
The second one said, “It’s such a hot day,”
The third one said, “I’m melting away.”
The fourth one said, “Don’t lose your top!”
The fifth one said, “Oh dear,”
KERPLOP!

One, Two, How Do You Do?
1, 2, how do you do?
1, 2, 3, clap with me
1, 2, 3, 4, jump on the floor
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, look bright and alive
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, I give my ice cream cone lots of licks
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, look up to heaven
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, turn around and wait

Themed Rhymes

Ice Cream
Put your ice cream up high
Put your ice cream down low
Hold your ice cream & turn around
Put your ice cream up high
Put your ice cream down low
Put your ice cream on the ground.

You can make ice cream cones or I used scarves.

Traditional Poem
I scream!
You scream!
We all scream for
ICE CREAM!

We started this rhyme off softly and progressed until we were shouting it.

Activity Songs

Chocolate by Songs for Wiggle Worms
Silly Dance Contest by James Gill
Get Yer Fiddle Out by Creepy Crawly Love

For the song “Get Yer Fiddle Out” I would stop the music and either holler “FREEZE” or “MELT”. I got this idea from Library Goddess.

Closing Goodbye Song

See you later, alligator

See you later, alligator (Wave goodbye)
In a while, crocodile
Give a hug, ladybug (Hug yourself)
Blow a kiss, jellyfish (Blow a kiss)
See you soon, big baboon
Out the door, dinosaur (Point straight ahead)
Take care, polar bear
Wave goodbye, butterfly (Wave goodbye)

Observations

I did different books for my sessions. The kids always get a hoot out of yelling in the library with the “I Scream, You Scream” poem.
