Turkey Feathers
 
 
Turkey Feathers
 
Mr. Turkey was so sad,
 He lost the feathers he once had.
 Now he wants us to help him find
 All the feathers of his kind.
 We will look high and low,
 We will find them don't you know.
 Here's a red one and a blue
 Look, we've found a green one too.
Here's an orange one and a yellow,
Soon he'll be a feathered fellow.
 Now we've found the purple one,
 Black and white -- we're almost done.
If we just look up and down,
I know we'll find the feather brown.
Now Mr. Turkey is so glad,
We found the feathers he once had.

Little Acorn


Little Acorn 
The squirrel, nest, and leafy shade are all separate pieces

Little Acorn
Little acorn on the ground
If you’re lucky and you’re not found
If squirrel and children leave you be
Someday you’ll grow to be a tree
Children will play in your leafy shade
Squirrels will hide in the nests they’ve made
Oh how happy we will be
We let you grow into a tree


Squeaky Clean Pigs

The pigs are clean on one side and dirty on the back
(to the tune of Green & Speckled Frogs)
Squeaky Clean Pigs

Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest pigs you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink, oink
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a great big THUD!
Now there are 4 clean squeaky pigs
Continue to count down to zero

A Healthy Treat
 
 
 
 
Adaptation: A Healthy Treat
(sung to the tune of "The Ants Go Marching")
A banana treat is what we'll eat.
Hurrah! Hurrah!
A banana treat is what we'll eat.
Hurrah! Hurrah!
A banana treat is what we'll eat.
Don't feed us anything sticky sweet.
For we want a healthy snack.
It is time; pass the treats,
Won't you please!

Substitute different fruits

Teepee Is My Home

Teepee is My Home
 
Free handed these. Canoe is not attached to the water

(Tune of The Farmer in the Dell)

The teepee is my home.
 
Of deer skins it is made.
 
A hole in the top where smoke can go,
 
It stands in forest shade.
 
The river runs nearby
 
And here is my canoe.

A paddle up and down the stream,

Beneath the sky of blue.

At Home in the Rainforest


At Home in the Rainforest
Each animal was cut from a single color of felt, using online clip art patterns, and then painted with fabric paints

Teacher Toucan:  At school today, we will talk about the rainforest.  Who knows what animals do in the rainforest?

Monkey:  Monkeys like to swing from trees.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing around.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Jaguar:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We love to swim and play in the streams.  We even eat the fish, when we can catch them.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing and jaguars swim.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Morpho Butterfly:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We like to drink sap and fruit juice, when we’re not flying around.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing, jaguars swim and butterflies drink sap.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Sloth:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We like to eat the leaves that other animals do not like. 

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing, jaguars swim, butterflies drink sap, and sloths eat leaves.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Poison Dart Frog:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We lay our eggs in the water trapped inside flowers, where they are safe from animals who want to eat them.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing, jaguars swim, butterflies drink sap, sloths eat leaves and frogs lay eggs.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Monkey:  Teacher Toucan, what do you do in the rainforest?

Teacher Toucan:  Oh!  I forgot!  Toucans live in rainforests, too!   We sit high in the branches and look for food.  School’s over.  Time to go to my home.  I want you to see my great rainforest home!
