Song: Recycling For Our Earth

Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.
And on his farm he had some chicks, E-I-E-I-O.
With a chick, chick here,
And a chick, chick there,
Here a chick, there a chick,
Everywhere a chick, chick,

Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.

3. Pig – oink, oink

5. Cat -meow, meow

7. Dog – woof, woof

Rhyme:

Five little farmers (fingers of one hand closed tightly over thumb)
Woke up with the sun, (open hand, with fingers and thumb standing upright)
For it was early morning
And chores must be done.
The first little farmer goes to milk the cow.

(Close both fists, make milking motions up and down.)
The second little farmer gets ready to plow.
(Grasp a steering wheel and pretend to drive.)
The third little farmer feeds the hens and chicks.
(Pretend to scatter corn.)
The fourth little farmer has gates to fix.
(Make hammering motions.)
The fifth little farmer sells vegetables in town.
(Cup hands around mouth as if calling out.)
Five busy little farmers work ’til the sun goes down.
(Yawn, stretch, sleep)
