Rainforest Songs, Poems and Finger Plays
Three Talking Toucans
Three talking toucans sitting in a tree
The first one turned & squawked at me!
Three little toucans sitting in a row
The second one said "I flap my wings,watch me go!"
Three little toucans sitting side by side
The third one said "my bright beak, I open wide!"
Three Frolicking Red Eyed Tree Frogs
Three little frogs sitting in a tree
The first one turned & jumped towards me!
Three little little frogs hopping all about
The second one said "At night's when I come out!"
Three little frogs leaping tree to tree
The third one said "Hey,wait for me!
The Mighty Morpho Butterflies
Three morpho butterflies gliding through the trees
The first one swooped to take a look at me!
Three morpho butterflies sitting on a leaf
The second one was trying to eat something sweet!
Three morpho butterflies flitting all about
The third one landed on my snout!
(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)
See the little froggy
Swimming in the pool
The water's great
It's nice and cool
When he gets all cleaned up
Out he'll hop
From bottom to top.
See the little froggy
On the lily pad
Trying to catch flies
She's getting sad.
When she catches one,
She'll gobble it up
Back in the water
She'll go kerplop!
Ribbit Ribbit said mama frog
Sitting on a great big log
"Where are my babies, where can they be?
Then out of the pond jumped one, two and three.
(Hold up three fingers , one at a time)
She was happy as could be,
But where were the others?
She couldn't see.
So, "Ribbit, ribbit," she called again.
Then out they jumped---4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10.
(hold up remaining fingers one at a time)
Five Freckled Frogs
Five little freckled frogs setting on a speckled log (5 fingers on bent arm)
Eating the MOST delicious bugs, yum, yum! (pick bugs out of air, rub tummy)
One jumped into the pool, where it was nice and cool, (finger hops in pool)
Then there were four freckled frogs!
Continue with four frogs, then three, and so on.
Then there were NO freckled frogs!
