To The Beach

Standard

To The Beach

 

We are going to the beach,
to the Beach, to the beach,
We are going to the beach,
in our bathing suits.
We will find there rocks and shells,
Rocks and shells, Rocks and Shells.
We will find there rocks and shells,
to gather by the water.
We will build a sand castle,
Sand castle, sand castle,
we will build a sand castle,
with bridges and a tower.
We will have a picnic too,
picnic too, picnic too,
We will have a picnic too,
With Sandwiches and oranges.
Home we head with Sunburned Cheeks,
Sunburned Cheeks, Sunburned Cheeks,
Home we head with sunburned Cheeks,
and treasures from our visit.

Easter Bunny

Standard

Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny’s feet,
Go hop, hop, hop.
While his big pink ears,
Go flop, flop, flop.
He is rushing on his way,
To bring our eggs on Easter Day.
With a hop, flop, hop, flop, hop.

Five Little Pumpkins

Standard

FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,

The first one said,

“Oh my, it’s getting late.

The second one said,

“There are witches in the air!”

The third one said,

“But I don’t care.”

The fourth one said,

“Let’s run and run and run.”

The fifth one said,

“I’m ready for some fun!”

WHOOSH went the wind,

And out went the lights!

The five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Mother Goose Monday – Brother John

Standard

Brother John

Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?

Brother John? Brother John?

Morning bells are ringing! Morning bells are ringing!

Ding, daing, dong. Ding, daing, dong.

My rainbow sleeping soundly

My rainbow sleeping soundly

Don’t Bring Camels In The Classroom

Standard

Don’t Bring Camels In The Classroom

By Kenn Nesbitt

Don’t bring camels in the classroom.
Don’t bring scorpions to school.
Don’t bring rhinos, rats, or reindeer.
Don’t bring mice or moose or mule.

Pull your penguin off the playground.
Put your python in a tree.
Place your platypus wherever
you think platypi should be.

Lose your leopard and your lemur.
Leave your llama and your leech.
Take your tiger, toad, and toucan
anywhere but where they teach.

Send your wombat and your weasel
with your wasp and wolverine.
Hide your hedgehog and hyena
where you’re sure they won’t be seen.

Please get rid of your gorilla.
Please kick out your kangaroo.
No, the teacher didn’t mean it
when she called the class a “zoo.”

July

Standard

JULY

July begins with a boom!

Sometimes it’s thunder,

With lightning in the sky.

Sometimes it’s the rummy-tum-tum

Of a drummer marching by.

You can get dressed up and carry flags,

And play in your very own band.

And now is the time to make cold drinks

To sell at your lemonade stand.

At night, if you see a star fall, swiish!

Be sure to make a lovely wish.

June

Standard

JUNE

June – and school is over soon!

Then all we’ll do each day

Is play and play – hooray!

Summer arrives June 21st – the longest day of the year.

We’ll laze on the grass and listen, and hear:

Bees buzzing!  Hummingbirds whirring!  Worms wiggling!

June is laughing, golden, giggling!

Today I’ll visit the book and di in my toes.

I’ll perch at the edge, and hope a butterfly lands on

My nose.
