Songs & Rhymes

Rhyme: Five Little Bats
Five little bats flew out one night (Hold up five fingers)
To have some fun in the bright moonlight. (Move your hand in a circle)
The first one said, “You can’t catch me!” (Move your thumb away to the side)
The second one said, “Look out for the tree!” (Shake your first finger in warning) The third one said, “I love to swoop,”
(Make your middle finger do a graceful dive)
The fourth one did a loop-the-loop. (Move your ring finger in a circle)
The fifth one said, “Let’s catch some gnats!” (Wiggle your little finger)
Isn’t it fun being five little bats! (Wiggle all five fingers)

Rhyme: Five Little Raccoons
One little raccoon looking for things to do,
Along came another and then there were two.
Two curious raccoons trying so hard to see,
Along came another and then there were three.
Three clever raccoons trying to open the door,
Along came another and then there were four.
Four happy raccoons glad to be alive,
Along came another and then there were five.
Five little raccoons as tired as can be,
Looked up for a place to rest and scurried up the tree.

Rhyme: Lightning Bugs
On a warm, calm, summer night,
You might see a yellow light
Dart in the air from bush to tree.
Whatever can that bright light be?
Go get a jar, with a lid that’s tight,
And try to catch your own night light!

1 little, 2 little, 3 little fireflies,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little fireflies,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little fireflies,
Add one more little firefly makes 10.

Song: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, Twinkle, all the night.
