  • Opening - Skinnamarink, Sticky Sticky Bubblegum
  • Book #1 – Snappy Little Jungle by Derek Matthews (pop-up)
  • Activity – An Elephant (my notes do not say where I found this action rhyme)
An elephant goes like this and that.
(pat knees)
He's terribly big,
(hands up high)
And he's terribly fat.
(hands out wide)
He has no fingers,
(wiggle fingers)
And he has no toes,
(wiggle toes)
But goodness gracious, what a nose!
(make curling motion away from nose)
  • Flannelboard - One Little Elephant Went Out To Play Upon a spider Web One Day
  • Book #2 - Jazzy In the Jungle by Lucy Cousins
