Action Poem: Five Little Elephants

Five little elephants rowing toward the shore,
One fell in and then there were four.
Four little elephants climbing up a tree,
One slid down and then there were three.
Three little elephants living in the zoo,
One walked away and then there were two.
Two little elephants playing in the sun,
One fell asleep and then there was one.
One little elephant isn’t any fun,
Abra-ca-da-bra! Then there were none!

Song:  Do your Ears Hang Low

Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
Like a Continental Soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

Counting Rhyme: Ten Fluffy Chicks
Five eggs and five eggs, that makes ten.  (Hold up both hands, fingers spread apart.)
Sitting on top is the Mother Hen.  (Fold one hand over the other.)
Crackle, crackle, crackle; (Clap hands three times.)
What do I see?
Ten fluffy chicks, (Hold up ten fingers again.)
As yellow as can be!

Song: Head and Shoulders
Head, shoulders, knees & toes, knees & toes
Head, shoulders, knees & toes, knees & toes
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose
Head, shoulders, knees & toes, knees & toes.
