SING

Fair Cow Song

(sing and act out each action sung to the tune of Do Your Ears Hang Low)

Is your shape OK?
Do you practice french ballet?
Do you run or jog?
Do you like to play leapfrog?
If it's big or small, doesn't matter after all,
'Cause, your shape's ok.

 

Is your hair OK?
Do you like to use hairspray?
Does it curl under your chin?
Do you shake it in the wind?
If it's big or small, doesn't matter after all,
'Cause your hair's OK.

 

Is your tail OK?
Does it swish and does it sway?
Can it swat a nasty fly?
Can it slap above your eye?
If it's big or small, doesn't matter after all,
'Cause your tail's OK.

 

Are your hooves OK?
Do they kick up lots of hay?
Do you buff then to a shine?
Do you chew them all the time?
If they're big or small, doesn't matter after all,
'Cause your hooves are OK.

 

Is your walk OK?
Do you know how to sashay?
Do you bump your hip?
Do you march and skip?
Stepping big or small, doesn't matter after all,
'Cause your walk's OK.

Big Chicken Song  (act out each scene with body parts emphasized)


Chickens use their wings to flip and flap and flop
Chickens use their beaks to pick and peck and pock
Chickens use their toes to pluck and pull and pop
Chickens use their legs to hobble and to hop
But....when chickens are afraid..........
They do it all!.....................................
........................................................
Until they go kerplop!  (fall to the ground)

Chicken Walk


(Use hand motions to walk, run, swish and swim)

We're going on a chicken walk.  We're not afraid.
Uh-oh. A big muddy ditch.
Can't go over it. Can't go under it.  Can't go around it. Have to go through it.

We're going on a chicken walk.  We're not afraid.
Uh-oh.  A big cow pasture.
Can't go over it. Can't go under it.  Can't go around it. Have to go through it.

We're going on a chicken walk. We're not afraid.
Uh-oh. A big cave.
Can't go over it. Can't go under it.  Can't go around it. Have to go through it.
It's dark. It's scary.  What's that? Its fuzzy...wuzzy...it's a wolf!

(speed up motions on return home)
There's the lake!
There's the cow pasture!
There's the ditch!
Safe at home.
We're not afraid.

Fly the Coop Fingerplay

 

4 big chickens came out to play. (2 fingers on each hand come from behind your back)
Looking for the farmhouse on the way. (hand to forehead searching)
Bark went the dog (clap)
Snap went the chains (snap)
And 4 big chickens ran home again. (hands behind your back)

4 big chickens came out to play.
Looking for a farmhouse on the way.
Whoo went the tractor. (pull horn)
Flap went their wings. (flap)
And 4 big chickens ran home again.

But wait! Said the chickens. (hands on hips)
Can't you see?
We're loud, wild and dirty
as we can be.
