Hi everyone! This week we will talk about ducks.

Opening song – So Happy You’re Here – by Hap Palmer

Book – “Mr. Duck Means Business” – by Tammi Sauer – Mr. Duck enjoys a quiet morning routine on his private pond every day until other animals mistakenly think he has invited them to join him.



Song/Activity- We are Little Ducklings – (Tune: I’m a Little Teapot”)

We are little ducklings in a row

(Children stand in a line with their hands tucked in their armpits and their rear ends sticking out!)

We flap our wings and away we go.

(Children flap their elbows and take three steps in time to the music)


Waddle, Waddle, flap flap,

(Waddle – On each “waddle,” – children swing their rear ends first to the left and then to the right)

(Flap – On each “flap,” children take one step and flap their elbows.

Quack, quack, quack.

(Quack – On each “quack,” the children look up and quack loudly)

Waddle, waddle, flap, flap,

Quack, quack, quack.

When our mother calls us we all dash.

(Children shuffle forward rapidly, flapping elbows)

We jump in the pond, with a splash, splash, splash.

(Children jump in place, and clap hands on each “Splash.”

Waddle, waddle, flap, flap,

Quack, quack, quack,

Waddle, waddle,  flap, flap.

Quack, quack, quack.

Book – “Quack, Daisy, Quack!” – by Jane Simmons – On a visit to Aunt Lily, Daisy, the duckling, and her brother drive off their playmates with noisy quacking, but when they lose sight of Mama, Daisy must use her loudest voice to call for help.



Book/Song – “Five Little Ducks” by Ivan Bates – When five little ducks head out for a walk on a beautiful spring day, their nervous mother is excited when they return as she is suddenly presented with five beautiful gifts from her thoughtful brood, including a lucky four-leaf clover and a juicy berry.



Book – “Do Like a Duck Does!” by Judy Hindley -By challenging a hairy stranger to imitate the behavior of herself and her ducklings, a mother duck proves that he is a fox and not a duck.
