Songs
Five Little Ducks
Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mama duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack,"
but only four little ducks came waddling back.
Repeat with four, three, two and one ducks

Humming Birds
Five humming birds flying in the air
(Hold up five fingers)
The first one landed in my hair
(Grab little finger)
The second and third were a pair
(Touch index finger and thunb together)
The fourth humming bird didn't care.
(grab ring finger)
The fifth humming bird hummed everywhere
(Touch middle finger and hum loudly)
