My Family

If you peak into my room at night
My family you will see
They kiss my face and tuck me in tight.
Why? Because they love me!

This is mother

This is the mother, kind and dear,
This is the father, sitting near.
This is the brother, strong and tall
This is the sister, who plays with her ball
This is the baby, the littlest of all
See my whole family, large and small.

This is the Father

This is the father short and stout.
This is the mother with children about.
This is the brother, tall you see.
This is the sister with doll on her knee.
This is the baby sure to grow,
And here is the family all in a row.

This is the Mother

This is the mother,
This is the father,
This is the brother tall.
This is the sister,
This is the baby,
Oh, how we love them all!

I put my hands together,
This is how I start.
I curve my fingers right around,
And I can make a heart!

The love Bug
It begins with a grin (smile Broadly)
It turns to giggle (put both hands on mouth and giggle)
You start to laugh (throw head back and laugh out loud)
Your legs start to wiggle (put feet in the air and shake)
You look all around for someone to hug (move eyes back and forth)
What can you do (shrug shoulders)
You've caught the love bug (hug another child or yourself)

5 Little Hearts

5 little hearts, all in a row
The first one said, "I love you so."
The second one said, "Will you be my Valentine?"
The third one said, "I will, if you'll be mine,"
The fourth one said, "I'll always be your friend."
The fifth one said, "We'll all be friends until the very end."

How Many Valentines?

Valentines, valentines,How many do you see?
Valentines, valentines:
One for Father, (hold up thumb)
One for Mother, (hold up finger)
One for Grandma (middle finger)
One for Sister, (ring finger)
One for Brother, (little finger)
And here is one for you! (make heart shape with thumbs and pointer fingers)

Bee My Valentine

Won't you "bee" my valentine (point to friend)
And buzz away with me? (pretend to fly)
We'll bumble along together
Because you're my Honey Bee. (throw kiss)

Valentine Valentine (a silly chant)

Valentine Valentine
Gooshy Gooshy Gooooooooooo
Valentine Valentine
Always saying I love youuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

I Made Three Valentines Today

I made three valentines today,
I'll give them all away.
The one for Mommy is red.
The one for Daddy is blue.
It's really pretty, too!
And here's a big one just for you.

My Valentine Heart

(point to lips) When I say I love you
(hand on heart) It comes from my heart
(point to ear) You hear it in your ear
(point to head) And it sounds very smart
(stand very tall) I love it when you're proud of me
(stretch arms wide) You say it all day long
(point to ear) And when I hear you say it
(hand on heart) My heart sings a merry song

Where is Family

Where is mommy, where is mommy?
Here she is, here she is.
How are you today sir, very well and thank you.
Run away, run away.

Where is daddy, where is daddy...

where is brother, where is brother...

where is sister, where is sister...

where is baby, where is baby...

where is family, where is family...

Five Fancy Valentines

Five fancy valentines for people I adore
I gave one to Mommy; now there are four.
Four fancy valentines all made me
I gave one to Daddy; now there are three.
Three fancy valentines that say, "I Love You"
I gave one to sister; now there are two.
Two fancy valentines to give away for fun
I gave one to brother; now there is one.
One fancy valentine my story's almost done
I gave it to baby; now there is none.

Ten Little Friends

Two little houses across the street
Open the doors, and ten friends meet.
How do you do? And how are you?
Such lovely sunny weather
Off they go to Music Makers
Ten little friends -- together.

Will You Be my Valentine?

Will you be my V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E?
If you will you surely know how happy I will be!
Sugar, spice and all things nice that's what you are to me.
Will you be my V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E?
