A CHUBBY LITTLE SNOWMAN            

 

A chubby little snowman had a carrot nose.
Along came An Artic hare, and what do you suppose?
That hungry little Artic hare, looking for his lunch.
Grabbed that snowman’s carrot nose, nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!

 

Polar Bear
(Tune :"My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean")

The polar bear lives in Alaska,
He never gets cold in a storm,
He swims in cold icy water,
His heavy coat keeps him warm.
Warm, warm, warm, warm,
His heavy coat keeps him warm.
Warm, warm, warm, warm,
His heavy coat keeps him warm.

Polar Bear, Polar Bear

Polar bear, polar bear, turn around.

Polar bear, polar bear, touch the ground.

Polar bear, polar bear, touch your shoe.

Polar bear, polar bear, I love you!

Up On The Iceberg
Tune: Up on the Housetop

Into the ocean, penguins go.
They spy the seals way down below.
Zip through the water with no delay
Zigzagging penguins swim away.
Oh, oh, oh, Go penguins go!
Oh, oh, oh, Go penguins go!
Leap to the iceberg, quick, quick, quick!
Back to the crèche to feed your chick!

I Know a Little Penguin
Tune: I'm a Little Teapot

I know a little penguin
Who sat on some blocks
He swam in the ocean
And he climbed on some rocks
He snapped at a seagull
He snapped at a seal
He snapped at a fish
Oh, what a meal!

Have You Ever Seen a Penguin
Tune: Have you Ever Seen a Lassie

Have you ever seen a penguin? a penguin? a penguin?
Have you ever seen a penguin swim this way and that?
Swim this way and that way and this way and that way?
Have you ever seen a penguin swim this way and that?

Slide, waddle, etc.

North Pole, South Pole
(To the tune of My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)
Up north there's a very cold ocean,
Where icebergs are big as can be.
Up north there's a place called the North Pole,
Where polar bears swim in the sea.
Up north, up north, where polar bears swim in the sea, the sea.
Up north, up north, where swimming is too cold for me!

Down south there's a very cold ocean,
Where icebergs are big as can be.
Down south there's a place called the South Pole,
Where penguins all swim in the sea.
Down south, down south, where penguins all swim in the sea, the sea.
Down south, down south, where swimming is too cold for me!

Penguin March

(to the tune of a military chant)

I'm a penguin black and white

I can't fly but that's all right.

I've got feathers that's not furand I lay eggs like other birds.

CHORUS

Penguins, 1, 2

Penguins, 3, 4

Penguins, 5, 6, 7, 8

They're great!

I just swim to get my meals

But I watch out for leopard seals.

I'm from the south as you may know

And now it's time for me to go.

REPEAT CHORUS

 On Top Of An Iceberg...
("On Top of Old Smoky")
On top of an iceberg, All covered with snow, I saw my first penguin And I wanted to know.
Oh is it a bird, Or is it a fish?
I looked at his feathers, And knew which was which.
I said, "Mr. Penguin, Which species are you?"
He said, "I'm an emperor, And not a gentoo."
I said, "Mr. Penguin, What's under you patch?"
He said, "It's an egg, It's ready to hatch!"
I said, "Mr. Penguin, Oh, where is your wife?"
"She's out in the ocean, She'll be back tonight."
Said Mr. Penguin, "Her name is Jill. She's out in the ocean, Feeding on krill."
The next thing I knew, I heard a small peep. And I saw a chick, At the emperor's feet!

Ten Little Penguins
Tune: Ten Little Indians

One little, two little, three little penguins,
Four little, five little, six little penguins,
Seven little, eight little, nine little penguins,
Ten little penguin chicks.

 

Penguin Family

 

One royal penguin . .feeling very blue (hold up one finger)
Called for his brother then there were two (hold up two fingers)
Two royal penguins. . .swimming in the sea (swimming motion)
Called for their sister then there were three (hold up three fingers)
Three royal penguins waddle on the shore (waddle)
Call for their mother, then there were four (hold up four fingers)
Four royal penguins learning how to dive (Make diving motion)
Call for their father, then there were five (hold up five fingers)

 

I Wish I Were a Walrus...
I wish I were a Walrus
A waddling on the shore.
I'd say, "Move over, here I come!"
And bellow out a "ROAR!"

I wish I were a Walrus
A basking in the sun.
I'd flap my flippers, oh so loud
To show I'm number one!

I wish I were a Walrus
A strutting all my stuff.
If anybody picked on me
I'd show them my big tusks!

 

Five Little Eskimos...
Five little Eskimos by the igloo door .
One went out to feed the dogs, then there were four.
Four little Eskimos rowing out to sea,
One jumped on an iceberg, then there were three.
Three little Eskimos making fish stew,
One burned his finger, then there were two.
Two little Eskimos hunting for fun,
One chased a baby seal, then there was one.
One little Eskimo all his work done,
Went home to supper, then there were none.

 

 

TEN LITTLE PUFFINS

 

Ten little puffins stand up straight hold up hands, palms outwards.

Ten little puffins make a gate hook thumbs together and fingers tight together.

Ten little puffins make a ring hold hands with palms facing, little  fingers and thumbs touching.

Ten little puffins bow and sing bend all fingers.

Ten little puffins dance all day wiggle all fingers.

Ten little puffins hide away hide fingers behind back.
