Today we read some clucky, feathery, fowl books about chickens!
Our first book was:
The Little Red Hen
Word and Pictures by Byron Barton
Here are some rhymes/finger-plays about chickens:
Ten Fluffy Chickens
Five eggs and five eggs,
That makes ten. (hold up two hands)
Sitting on top is the Mother Hen. (fold one hand over the other)
Crack! Crack! Crack! (clap three times)
What do I see?
Ten yellow chicks, (hold up ten fingers)
As fluffy as can be.
This little chick had corn today. (Point to fingers, one at a time)
This little chick had only hay.
This little chick had worms, they say.
This little chick cried, “Peep, peep, peep”
Feed me or I’ll weep, weep, weep.
This little chick had feather shoes
He wore them out to get the news.
THIS LITTLE CHICK
This little chick got into the barn (hold up index finger)
This little chick ate all the corn (hold up middle finger)
This little chick said he wasn’t well (hold up ring finger)
And this little chick said he’d go tell (hold up little finger)
But this little chick said ”Peep! Peep! Peep! (hold up thumb)
Please be quiet! I’m trying to sleep!” (wiggle thumb)
Our next book was:
Words and Pictures by Pat Hutchins
