Sports Songs, Poems, and Fingerplays to Share:

A Little Ball
A little ball, (form circle with thumb and finger)
A bigger ball, (form circle with hands)
A great big ball I see. (form circle with arms)
Now let’s count them.
Are you ready?
One, (hold up one finger)
Two, (two fingers)
Three! (three fingers)

Take Me Out to the Ballgame
Take me out to the ballgame
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks
I don’t care if I ever get back
Let’s root, root, root for the home team
If they don’t win, it’s a shame
And it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out
At the old ballgame!

Five Little Footballs
Five little footballs trying hard to score
1 makes a touchdown
Hear the crowd roar! (Cheer!)
(Continue counting down each verse)

This is the Way
(Tune: The Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we bounce the ball,
bounce the ball, bounce the ball,
This is the way we bounce the ball,
when we play basketball.

Kick the ball…
When we play soccer.

Hike the ball…
When we play football.

Swing the bat…
When we play baseball.

Soccer Song (Sing to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”)

Kick, kick, kick the ball,
Soccer is such fun.
Pass the ball and kick the ball,
And run, run, run, run, run! 

We hope you can join us for storytime at one of our Handley Regional Library Branches this week!
