When You're One & The Good Morning Train

In this post, I have put a video clip of us singing each song, since I could not find them on You-Tube. Expect a lot more songs to come. I want to have a super-huge list. It looks like I will have to make videos for many other songs as well, since I either can't find them on You-Tube, or they're just not sung the way that we sing them.

WHEN YOU'RE ONE  (This is another one we learned from the Early Years Centre.)

When you're one one one (Index finger)
Tap on your thumb thumb thumb (Use your fingers to tap on your thumb)

When you're two two two (Hold up two fingers)
Tap on your shoe shoe shoe (Tap on your shoe, or your foot if not wearing shoe)

When you're three three three (Hold up three fingers)
Tap on your knee knee knee (Tap your hand on your knee)

When you're four four four (Hold up four fingers)
Tap on the floor floor floor (Hit the ground with your hand)

When you're five five five (Hold up five fingers)
Dance the jive jive jive (Dance!)

When you're six six six (Hold up six fingers)
Put down your sticks (Pretend to put down sticks)



THE GOOD MORNING TRAIN (Again, OEYC, though it's to the tune of 'She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes'.  It's a good song for kids to learn people's names, and they love to hear their own name in a song! It works really well at the very start of circle time, to make everyone feel welcome.)

The good morning train is coming
How are you? Choo Choo! (Pull your arm down for 'Choo Choo')

  1. My mother-in-law takes my son twice a week to the Markham and Lawrence OEYC and they use this song. It sounds adorable! I'd like to try it with my toddler story time at TPL>
