Let's Talk "Wiggles"! 

I don't need to tell you that preschoolers get the wiggles!  They get them at Circle Time.  They get them while waiting to transition to another activity.  Face it, they get them when doing an activity to get out the wiggles!

Knowing this, you can COUNT on your children getting them during their program!  Be prepared!  Plan for them!

If they all seem to be getting ancy, your program may be too long.  What would you do at Circle Time when they get the wiggly?  Perhaps you would sing a transition song!

You have an arsenal of these songs!  Don't be afraid to take a break and sing a song to get the wiggles out during your program!

This is the Way

This is the way we jump up and down, jump up and down, jump up and down.

This is the way we jump up and down and get out all our wiggles.

This is the way we touch our toes, touch our toes, touch our toes.

This is the way we touch our toes and get out all our wiggles.

This is the way we breathe in and out (take a breath).  Breathe in and out (take a breath), Breathe in and out (take a breath).

This is the way we breathe in and out (take a breath) and get out all the wiggles!


Wiggle Moves  

Sung to Jingle Bells

Clap your hands, stomp your feet, wiggle all around.

Reach your hands high in the air and then touch the ground.

Hold your hips, hold your head then wiggle your arms for some fun!

Now let's (fill in the name of your next skit or song from your concert), because it is our next one!

My hands are starting to wiggle!

My hands are starting to wiggle!

And so is the rest of me!


So...Let's shake out the wiggles,

Let's shake out the wiggles.

Let's shake out the wiggles....

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, goes all of me!

Wiggle Time Finger Plays

Point to Me!

Point to the window.  Point to the door.

Now point to the ceiling.  Then point to the floor.

Point to your elbow.  Point to your knee.

Point to yourself.  Now point to ME!



Open, Shut Them

Open, shut them.  Open, shut them.  

Give a little clap. clap. clap.

Open. Shut them.  Open, shut them.

Put them on your lap.


Creep them, crawl them.  Creep them, crawl them.

Right up to your chin. chin. chin.

Open up your little mouth......but DO NOT LET THEM IN!


Wiggle Wobble 

Heads go wiggle, wobble; (wiggle head from side to side) 

Wiggle, wobble; Wiggle, wobble.

Heads go wiggle, wobble, then they STOP. (freeze)

Hands go wiggle, wobble; (wiggle hands)

Wiggle, wobble; Wiggle, wobble.

Hands go wiggle, wobble, then they STOP. (freeze with hands in front of them)
