Songs
Five Little Speckled Frogs
Five little speckled frogs (show hand)
Sitting on a speckled log(hand over forearm)
Eating the most delicious bugs! Yum! Yum! (rub tummy)
One jumps into the pool (use both hands to point down and then underwater swimming motion)
Where it is nice and cool,
Now there are 4 speckled frogs!
(repeat with 3, 2, 1 until there are NO speckled frogs)
GLUB! GLUB! (Can be used as a flannel board)
Gunk! Gunk!
Gunk! Gunk! Went the little green frog one day,
Gunk, gunk! Went the little green frog!
Gunk, gunk! Went the little green frog one day, and his eyes went 'blink, blink, blink' (Blink eyes)
(Change the last lines to..)
And his legs went jump jump jump!
And his knees went wiggle wiggle wiggle
And his arms went round, round, round.
from Copycat
Quiet
I'm gonna' hop hop hop like a bunny
Run run run like a dog
Walk walk walk like an elephant
Jump jump jump like a frog
Swim swim swim like a goldfish
Fly fly fly like a bird
Sit right down, put your hands in your lap and not say a single word! Shhhh! (finger on lips) Not way a single word!
