Little Ducks Song

Sung to: “London Bridge”

Little ducks go quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack –
Little ducks go quack quack quack
In the springtime.

-Ducky Tickle (Use a rubber duck or pom-pom to act out the rhyme.)

Quack, quack, quack,

The duck’s on your back.

She climbs to your head,

And jumps to your lap.

Flap, flap, flap,

Down your legs she taps.

She waddles to your toes,

And back to your lap.

Skip, skip, skip,

Our ducky does flips.

She gives you a big kiss,

Right on your lips.

-Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Relaxing Flowers

Five little flowers standing in the sun (hold up five fingers)
See their heads nodding, bowing one by one? (bend fingers several times)
Down, down, down comes the gentle rain (raise hands, wiggle fingers and lower
arms to simulate falling rain) And the five little flowers lift their heads up again! (hold up five fingers)

Umbrellas Fingerplay

(Use fingers or make umbrella puppets)

Five umbrellas stood by the back door,
The red one went outside, then there were four.
Four umbrellas pretty as can be,
The blue one went outside, then there were three.
Three umbrellas with nothing to do,
The green one went outside, then there was one.
Just one umbrella alone in the hall,
The purple one went outside, and that was all!

http://www.preschooleducation.com/sweather.shtml

Nine Little Flowers
To the tune of “Ten Little Indians”

One little, two little, three little flowers,
Four little, five little, six little flowers,
Seven little, eight little, nine little flowers,
Peeping through the ground.

Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
So they’ll grow up tall.

As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
In the lovely springtime.

-Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.

But now the clock is winding…down.

Tick…Tock…goes…the…clock

Until…it…comes…

To…a…stop!
