Snapping Turtle He snaps in the morning, (snap with hand) He snaps at night He snaps at the bugs As he takes each bite. He snaps so much, He's quite a sight. Snap! Snap! Snap!
A Salamander I saw a little creature that was slimy, smooth, and wet. I thought it was the oddest thing that I had ever met. It was something like a lizard, but it had no scales at all. It was something like a frog, but it didn't hop- it crawled. So I took it to my teacher and she told me right away, " I see you brought a salamander into class today."
Lizard Finger play (Use fist of one hand to represent the lizard - have pointer finger move in and out of fist quickly to be the lizard's tongue. 5 fingers of the other hand are the bugs that "disappear" as the lizard's fast tongue "gets" them.) 5 little bugs on the forest floor Along came a sticky tongue lizard ... SLURP!!! Now there are 4. 4 little bugs on a kapok tree Along came s sticky tongue lizard ... SLURP!!! Now there are 3. 3 little bugs without a single clue..... 2 little bugs soaking up the hot sun.... 1 little bug knew that he was done..... Now there are none.
If You See If you see a crocodile, Do you think it's a pretty sight? (Make a frightened face) If you see a snake, Do you freeze with fright? (Freeze in position) If you see an alligator, Does your heart pound with all it's might? (Quickly thump fist over heart) Their reptile families think they're dear (Hug self) But people really should steer clear! (Take giant step backwards)
S-n-a-k-e As he bends and twists and squiggles around, (Do actions as indicated by words) See Mr. Snake shaping letters on the ground. (Point to ground) First an "S" Now an "N" Then an "A" Next a "K" And an "E" (Make giant size letters in the air as each letter is mentioned) He's spelled out his name for us all to see. "S-N-A-K-E" (spell name aloud)

At the end of the ride, The lady was inside, And the smile was on the crocodile.
