    I'm a Nut
    (Except I only do the first & last verses with the chorus instead of all 4 verses!)


    5 Little Ducks went out to play, over the hills & far away,
    Mother Duck said quack quack quack quack
    But only 4 little ducks came back
    1 Little Duck went out to play, over the hills & far away,
    Mother Duck said quack quack quack quack
    but none of the 5 little ducks came back
    Sad Mother Duck went out one day, over the hills & far away,
    Poor Mother Duck said quack quack quack
    & All of the 5 little ducks came back!

    This video pronounces it "gully", but it should be more like "goooly"


    And I can't find my absolute favorite one that the kids also love! It's part of Primrose School's music program. It's about animals & you can substitute any animal in there (so it could potentially go on forever! And you can have the kids suggest animals).
    Here are the lyrics, which I know are pointless without the tune:

    Mama's gonna buy me a little cow
    Mama's gonna buy me a pretty little cow
    Mama's gonna buy me a little cow
    The littlest cow with the loudest sound
    Moo, moo
    Hear the cow across the town
    Moo, moo
    The littlest cow with the loudest sound

    Maybe I'll just make my own youtube video for the song.. when I'm brave enough :)

    EDIT: Alright, I made a video. It's unlisted so you need the link to view it. Here it is.. don't judge my singing

    well, with fall on it's way...a song we like to sing at my school is

    (to the tune of "this old man")
    way up high in a tree 5 little apples smiled at me
    so...i...SHOOK THAT TREE as hard as i could
    down came an apple mmm mmm good

    (count down until you get to no apples)

    tommy thumb

    tommy thumb is up
    and tommy thumb is down
    tommy thumb is dancing all around the town
    dance him on your shoulders
    dance him on your head
    dance him on your knees
    now, tuck him into bed

    (for this one, use your thumbs to do the movements described in the song)

    "we're going on a bear hunt" is good maybe if you make some felt pieces to go along with it (or you can use the book, but felt pieces are cooler...i think)

    this one isnt so much a song...it's more of a rhyme

    here is my box
    now put on the lid
    i wonder whatever inside is hid?
    why (child's name) it's a (animal or item of the child's choosing)

    and you can play around with it. if it's an animal, you can ask if the child wants to pet it or you can make the animal sound. if it's an item, like a ball, you can pretend to throw it to the child.

    sometimes when my group (i work with toddlers) is ready to read a story...we will start with the song "these are my glasses"

    these are my glasses
    this is my book
    i put on my glasses and open up my book
    and i read, read, read
    and i look, look, look
    i take off my glasses and (clap hands together)
    close up my book
