Fingerplay

Five Little Wolf Pups
(adapted)
Five little wolf pups were playing in the sun.
(hold up hands, fingers extended)
This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run.
(bend down first finger)
This one saw a butterfly, and he began to
race.
(bend down second finger)
This one saw a cat, and he began to chase.
(bend down third finger)
This one tried to catch his tail, and he went
round and round.
(bend down fourth finger)
This one was so quiet, he never made a
sound.
(bend down thumb)

Flannelboard- “This Little Wolf”

This little wolf liked to howl
This little wolf preferred to growl
This little wolf was panting to play
And this little wolf was happy all day!
How many wolves are there? 1-2-3-4

Song – “If You’re a Wolf and You Know It”

If You’re a Wolf And You Know It
(sung to If You’re Happy and You Know It)

If you’re a wolf and you know it, howl at the moon
If you’re a wolf and you know it, howl at the moon
If you’re a wolf and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re a wolf and you know it, howl at the moon

If you’re a wolf and you know it, growl at night
If you’re a wolf and you know it, growl at night
If you’re a wolf and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re a wolf and you know it, growl at night

If you’re a wolf and you know it, scratch your fleas
If you’re a wolf and you know it, scratch your fleas
If you’re a wolf and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re a wolf and you know it, scratch your fleas

If you’re a wolf and you know it, do all three
If you’re a wolf and you know it, do all three
If you’re a wolf and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re a wolf and you know it, do all three.
