Songs
Runaway Cookies
Flannelboard with duck, teddy bear, lamb,rabbit,gingerbread man,and a cookie jar with lid.
The cookie jar people
Hopped out one night
When the cookie jar lid
was not on tight.
The gingerbread man
Opened raisin eyes
and looked about
great surprise.
The frosted bunny
Twinkled his nose
And danced around
On his cookie toes.
The sugary duck
Began to quack
And shake the sugar
Off his back
The cinnamon bear
Could only grunt
For he was too fat
To do a stunt.
The coconut lamb
Jumped up so high
That his little white tail
Flew toward the sky
They were all so happy
To be at play
That they danced and danced
and danced away.
They danced away so very far
That they never came back
to the cookie jar.

Quack Quack
Now I'm up (stand up)
Now I'm down (squat down)
See me waddle all around.(waddle)
Put my hands behind my back(hands/back)
Like a duck I'll say 'Quack Quack'
(Make a duckbill with hands and quack)
Five Little Ducks
Five little ducks that I once knew
Fat ones skinny ones tall ones, too
But the one little duck with the feather on his back,
He led the others with a 'quack quack quack
Down to the river they would go
Wibble wobble wibble wobble to and fro
But the one little duck with the feather on his back
He led them all with a quack quack quack
quack quack quack
quack quack quack
