The Turtle Song

I had a little turtle,                                                                                                                                                                             His name was Tiny Tim.                                                                                                                                                                    I put him in the bathroom to see if he could swim,                                                                                                            he drank up all the water,                                                                                                                                                              he ate up all the soap and now he's sick in bed with a bubble in his throat.                                                         Bubble, bubble, bubble.                                                                                                                                                                 Bubble, bubble, bubble.                                                                                                                                                              Bubble, bubble, bubble...the bubble goes POP!

Square Walking
(Tune: Farmer In the Dell)
We walk along the square
We walk along the square
Four straight lines
All the same size
We walk along the square

Song (Tune: London Bridges):
My four sides are all the same, all the same, all the same,
My four sides are all the same, I'm a square.


 Lyrics to "A Great Big Elephant"

(tune of "If you're happy and you know it")

   Oh, I wish I was a great big elephant. 
Oh, I wish I was a great big elephant. 
Oh, wouldn't it be neat,
To have a trunk to help me eat.
Oh, I wish I was a great big elephant.


(Tune: Are You Sleeping?)
Here is a triangle, here is a triangle,
How can you tell?  How can you tell?
It has three sides, it has three sides
1-2-3, 1-2-3


Five Little Freckled Frogs
Five little freckled frogs sitting on a speckled log,
Eating the most delicious flies, Yum, Yum!
One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool,
Now there's three freckled frogs.
(Keep repeating the verse till there's one frog left):
One little freckled frog sitting on a speckled log,
Eating the most delicious flies, Yum, Yum!
She jumped into the pool, where it was nice and cool,
Now there are no freckled frogs.
 As a fingerplay, fingers are frogs sitting on the other arm (log).  Children can pretend to eat flies, rubbing their stomachs when saying "Yum, Yum," then their finger frogs can pretend to jump in the pool.   


 I have 10 little fingers and 10 little toes
   hold up ten fingers

Two little arms and one little nose

   raise arms and then point to nose

One little mouth and two little ears

   point to mouth and ears

Two little eyes for smiles and tears

   everyone smile

One little head and two little feet

   shake head and feet

One little chin;  that's ME, complete!

   hold up arms



My hands upon my head I'll place,
Upon my shoulders, on my face,

At my waist and by my side,

Then behind me they will hide.

Then I'll raise them way up high,

And let my fingers fly, fly, fly,

Then clap, clap, clap them--

One - Two - Three!

Now see how quiet they can be.
