Blogging A to Z: Zoo

30 Apr

Letter Z (1).jpg

During the month of April, I’ll be participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge.  My theme for the month is Storytime Plans From A to Z.  Each plan will have eight stories as well as four songs, fingerplays or rhymes to match the theme!  As you can see, I’ll try and attribute where I found all of this fun (and often you can find it in multiple places).  My goal is to make storytime planning a little easier on myself in the future and to make storytime planning for other librarians easy as well!

Kangaroo
Jump, jump, jump (jump)
Goes the kangaroo. (jump)
I thought only one – (hold up one finger)
But now I see two! (hold up two fingers)
Mommy and her baby
With his head popping out (wiggle thumb from fist)
He holds on tight (hug self)
As they jump all about! (jump around)

Alice the Camel
Alice the Camel has 5 humps
Alice the Camel has 5 humps
Alice the Camel has 5 humps
So go, Alice, go!

Alice the camel has 4 humps…
Alice the camel has 3 humps…
Alice the camel has 2 humps…
Alice the camel has 1 hump…
So go, Alice, go!

Alice the camel has no humps…
Because Alice is a horse!

Goin’ to the Zoo
Mummy’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow, Zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow,
Mummy’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow
And we can stay all day.

Chorus: We’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo
How about you, you, you?
You can come too, too, too
We’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo.

Look at all the monkeys swinging in the trees,
Swinging in the trees, swinging in the trees,
Look at all the monkeys swinging in the trees,
We can stay all day.

(chorus)

Look at all the crocodiles swimming in the water,
Swimming in the water, swimming in the water,
Look at all the crocodiles swimming in the water
We can stay all day.

(chorus)

Yes, Mummy’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow,
Zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow,
Mummy’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow
And we can stay all day.
