Today we continued with the letter H and hippos! We read 2 stories about hippos: “Hide and Seek Hippo” by Samantha Berger and “Hippo! No, Rhino” by Jeff Newman. Hippo, No, Rhino is a really funny illustrated story with mostly funny pictures and very little words about a confused zoo keeper who mistakenly puts the hippo sign in front of the rhino’s cage. The rhino gets so upset because everyone thinks that he is a hippo! We then learned a hippo song and a letter Hh cheer and made paper hippos for art.
Hungry, Hungry Hippos
(to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot”)
Hungry, hungry hippo,
Oh-h-h so-o-o sl-o-o-o-w-
Walk into the water,
H is for honeybee, H is for hen
H is for hamster and hogs in a pen.
H is for hiccups, hat, hug and horse
H is for hula-hoop and hippo of course.
Hooray for H, big and small-
the happiest, hoppiest letter of all!
