Hip, hip hooray for Hippos!

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,

And down….you….go!

Hh Cheer

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!
