Said the first little chicken, with a strange little squirm, "I wish I could find a fat little worm."
Said the second little chicken with an odd little shrug, “I wish I could find a fat little bug.”
Said the third little chicken with a sharp little squeal, “I wish I could find some nice yellow meal.”
Said the fourth little chicken with a sigh of grief, “I wish I could find a nice green leaf.”
Said the fifth little chicken with a faint little moan, “I wish I could find a wee gravel stone.”
“Now see here,” said the mother from the green garden patch, “If you want any breakfast just come here and scratch!”
Five eggs and five eggs, and that makes ten (show 5 fingers on each hand)
Sitting on top is mother hen (make a fist and put one hand on top)
Cackle, cackle, cackle, and what do I see? (clap, clap, clap)
Ten fluffy chicks as yellow as can be! (make 10 chicks pop through and wiggle fingers)
The hens in the coop go cluck, cluck cluck…all around the farm.
The chicks in the yard go peep, peep peep…all around the farm.
The rooster on the fence goes cock-a-doodle-do, cock-a-doodle-do, cock-a-doodle- do…all around the farm. Credit: http://www.hcpl.net/cgi-bin/ebranch/story_time/theme.pl?id=112
This little chick went to the garden, this little chick found a worm, this little chick eyed a berry, this little chick gave a squirm, and this little chick cried “Peep! Peep! Peep!” all around the farm!
The craft this week was simple but really cute! I found the idea to make paper bag nests from Pinterest, and then just stuck a large pompom, some wiggle eyes, and feet and beaks that I had cut from orange cardstock inside the bags with the glue stick. The trick to this craft is rolling the sides of the paper bag down gently so that it forms a nest, then securing everything else inside. It was a big hit!
