Crocodiles! Snakes, and Lizards! Oh my! Today we learned about creeping, crawling reptiles.
Our first book this morning was:
How to Hide a Crocodile and other reptiles, by Ruth Heller.
We then had tons of fun with the “5 Hungry Crocodiles” rhyme. I used a crocodile puppet and gave each child a different colored fish made out of construction paper. When I called out different color fish for the crocodile to eat, the children would ‘feed the crocodile”!
Five Hungry Crocodiles
5 hungry crocodiles each made a wish
5 hungry crocodiles wished for a fish
One wants a purple fish
Help him get his wish
Keep counting down to 1 until all the colored fish are gone
And that left none
Five crocodiles sleeping in the sun
After that we went on to read:
Stanley Mows the Lawn, by Craig Frazier
Our craft was a paper crocodile, which I found here: http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mpapercrocodile.htm
