Fingerplay Friday- Friends and Family

I love fingerplays and songs where the tune is familiar but the words are new.  Here's one.

The Friendship Song (London Bridges)
A friend is someone who is kind, who is kind, who is kind.
A friend is someone who is kind, just like (child's name)
A friend is someone who can help, who can help, who can help.
A friend is someone who can help, just like (child's name)
A friend is someone who can share, who can share, who can share.
A friend is someone who can share, just like (child's name)
A friend is someone you can trust, you can trust, you can trust.
A friend is someone you can trust, just like (child's name)

Finger People
Finger people are such fun
We will meet them one by one.
First comes mother, (pointer finger)
Next comes father,
Ther is big brother,
Here is sister with her ball
Here is baby last of all
Now we'll count them just to see
How many in our family
1,2,3,4,5
                                                                    Activity- cut out ellison machine family people. let kids glue the
                                                                    members of their family on paper and count.

Manners
We say thank you, we say please,
 and excuse me when we sneeze.
That's the way we do what's right.
We have manners. We're polite.
