Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Little Pigs Say Oink
(Tune: Mary Had A Little Lamb)
Little pigs say oink-oink-oink,
Oink-oink-oink, oink-oink-oink,
Little pigs say oink-oink-oink
All around the farm.
(repeat with other animals)

Flannelboard: Wake Up!
Early one morning the rising sun called,
“Wake up, wake up,” and woke up the . . . rooster.
“Cock-a-doodle-doo,” said the rooster and woke up the . . . goat.
“Baa, baa” said the goat and woke up the . . . sheep.
“Baa, baa,” said the sheep and woke up the . . . horse.
“Neigh, neigh,” said the horse and woke up the . . . pig.
“Oink, oink,” said the pig and woke up the . . . cow.
“Moo, moo,” said the cow and woke up the . . . dog.
“Woof, woof,” said the dog and woke up the . . . farmer.
The farmer climbed out of bed and then went and fed . . .
The dog, the cow, the pig, the horse, the sheep, the goose, and the rooster.

Flannelboard Song: Five Squeaky Clean Pigs
Tune: Five Green and Speckled Frogs
Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink! Oink! (clap, clap)
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a great big thud
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs.

Song: We’re Going to Shake Our Shakers
Tune: Jimmy Crack Corn
We’re going to shake our shakers High and low.
We’re going to shake our shakers High and low.
We’re going to shake our shakers High and low,
Until someone says…….STOP!
Shake our shakers … Fast and slow.
Shake our shakers … Left and right.
Shake our shakers … Front and back
