Songs & Rhymes

Rhyme:

Two little penguins sitting on the ice.
One bows once, the other bows twice.
Waddle Little penguins.
Waddle away, Come back penguins,
Time to play.

Rhyme:

Six Little Penguins
Their suits are black and their vests are white.
They waddle to the left and they waddle to the right.
They stand on the ice and they look very neat,
As they waddle along on their little flat feet.

Rhyme:

Six little penguins off an iceberg did dive,
One bumped his beak, then there were five.

Five little penguins swam the ocean floor,
One saw a whale, then there were four.

Four little penguins spun around, whee-ee!
One spun off, then there were three!

Three little penguins, with nothing to do,
One went fishing, then there were two.

Two little penguins, having lots of fun,
One fell off, then there was one.

One little penguin, when the day was done,
Went home to sleep, then there were none.

Polar Bears & Penguins Oh My!

March 13, 2012

Books
Good Morning, Little Polar Bear By Carol Votaw
Who Has These Feet? By Laura Hulbert
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you Hear? By Bill Martin Jr

Music
“Doing the Penguin” from Hot! Hot! Hot! Dance Songs by Sesame Street

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Movement Rhyme: Polar Bear Polar Bear
Polar bear, polar bear, turn around.
Polar bear, polar bear, touch the ground.
Polar bear, polar bear, bend your knee.
Polar bear, polar bear, climb this tree.
Polar bear, polar bear, stand on your toes.
Polar bear, polar bear, touch your nose
Polar bear, polar bear, reach up high.
Polar bear, polar bear, wink one eye.
Polar bear, polar bear, make a frown.
Polar bear, polar bear, sit right down.

Movement Rhyme: The Little Polar Bear
The little polar bear swims in the sea
And eats all the fish that he can see
He gets out and shakes his white fur
Rolls in the snow and gives a little “Grrr”
Then he stretches big and tall
And goes to sleep curled up in a ball.

Movement Song: If You’re An Artic Animal and You Know It
If you’re a polar bear and you know it give a growl
If you’re a polar bear and you know it give a growl
If you’re a polar bear and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re a polar bear and you know it give a growl

If you’re a polar bear and you know it show your claws
If you’re a penguin and you know it waddle like this
If you’re a snowy owl and you know it give a hoot
If you’re a seal and you know it clap your flippers

Movement Rhyme: Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
I can put them together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump up high,
Or make them go low.
I can fold them up quietly,
And sit just so!

Waddle little penguins. Waddle away.
Come back penguins. Time to play.

Song: Meet Peter Penguin

If he eats the wrong food, it might make him sneeze
He likes popcorn & pizza, and pineapple, too
What will you serve him, if he eats with you?

Flannelboard: Penguin Family
One royal penguin . .feeling very blue
Called for his brother then there were two
Two royal penguins. . .swimming in the sea
Called for their sister then there were three
Three royal penguins waddle on the shore
Call for their mother, then there were four
Four royal penguins learning how to dive
Call for their father, then there were five

Have you ever seen a penguin swim this way and that?

Song: Shake Your Shaker (used with shakers)
Shake your shaker in the air, shake it here, shake it there.
Shake your shaker in the air, shake your shaker.

Shake it high and shake it low, shake it yes, shake it no.
Shake it high and shake it low, shake your shaker.

Shake it up and shake it down, rub your shaker on the ground.
Shake it up and shake it down, shake your shaker.

Shake it near and shake it far, drive your shaker like a car.
Shake it near and shake it far, shake your shaker.

Shake it fast and shake it slow, shake it STOP, shake it GO.
Shake it fast and shake it slow, shake your shaker.
