The Whales (tune of I'm a little teapot) I'm a humpback whale, I'm very strong. I leap about And sing a song. I like to eat my fill In the Northern Sea. But in the winter, South I flee. I am a beluga, I'm all white. From head to tail I'm quite a sight. You can hear me singing Way up north, Playing and swimming back and forth. I'm a mighty orca Black and white. In the sea I'm a beautiful sight. I'm not very big, But I am sleek. I hunt for my food, Cause I have teeth.
I'm A Big Whale (Clementine) I am swimming, I am swimming, I am swimming in the sea. I'm a big whale and I'm swimming I am swimming in the sea. I am singing , I am singing, I am singing in the sea. I'm a big whale and I'm singing, I am singing in the sea. I am spouting, I am spouting, I am spouting in the sea. I'm a big whale and I'm spouting, I am spouting in the sea.

Having trouble getting your children to clean their rooms? Who doesn't! The solution may be to make it seem less like a chore and more like a fun activity! Try starting your own in-house cleaning services company and "hire" your children as employees. Arm them with a fun, fuzzy duster and set up a "per room" payment or reward system. Then, once they consider their work complete, be sure to do an "employee review" and grade their work, noting where improvements are needed. Over the course of the month, if they're doing a good job offer "raises" for taking on additional responsibilities, like doing their laundry or cleaning up the living room. At the end of the month, give out an "Employee of the Month" award for the best worker and in no time at all, you'll find your kids eager to help out and earn the distinguished title.
