Just Ducky!

We ended Dd week learning all about ducks.  We read the children’s classic “Make Way For Ducklings” by Robert McClosky and “One Duck, Another Duck” by Charlotte Pomerantz.  We sang some ducky songs and then made a cute duck craft!  I love Make Way for Ducklings, it brings you to a time when police officers directed traffic, women and men wore hats and people stopped to notice things.  The song The Little White Duck is a really old song that my own mother used to sing to me when I was little and now I sing it to my own children and class.

The Little White Duck

There’s a little white duck sitting in the water
a little white duck doing what he oughter
he took a bite of a lily pad
flapped his wings and he said “I’m glad
I’m a little white duck sitting in the water
quack! quack! quack!”

there’s a little green frog swimming in the water
a little green frog doing what he oughter
he jumped right off of the lily pad
that the little duck bit and he said “I’m glad
I’m a little green frog swimming in the water
ribbit! ribbit! ribbit!”

there’s a little black bug floating on the water
a little black bug doing what he oughter
he tickled the frog on the lily pad
that the little duck bit and he said “I’m glad
I’m a little black bug floating on the water
bzzz! bzzz! bzzz!”

there’s a little red snake playing in the water
a little red snake doing what he oughter
he frightened the duck and the frog so bad
he ate the bug and he said “I’m glad
I’m a little red snake playing in the water
hiss! hiss! hiss!”

now there’s nobody left sitting in the water
nobody left doing what he oughter
there’s nothing left but the lily pad
the duck and the frog ran away, I’m sad
’cause there’s nobody left sitting in the water

boo! hoo! hoo!
