Little ducks all in a row….

We had a great week learning all about ducks and the letter Dd.  We sang, made a craft and read books all about these feathery, floating animals.  We watched a short video on ducks too!  Click here to watch real ducks and here to see a fun song about ducks by Elmo!

Sing With Me

Quack Quack Went the Little Yellow Duck

(to the tune: “Gung, Gung Went the Little Green Frog”)

Quack, quack went the little yellow duck one day.

Quack, quack went the little yellow duck.

Quack, quack went the little yellow duck one day.

And his feet went,

Flip, flap, flop.

Five Little Ducks

Five little ducks went out to play,

Over the hills and far away.

Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack”

And only three little ducks came waddling back.

*continue until you get to no little ducks then sing the following verse:

Sad mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hills and far away
The sad mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack.”
And all of the five little ducks came back.

We used my felt finger play glove to sing “Five Little Ducks” and the children got to take turns taking a duck off as we sang.

Story Time

duck books

We read “10 Little Rubber Ducks” by Eric Carle, “Make Way for Ducklings” by Robert McCloskey and “Have You Seen My Duckling?” by Nancy Tafuri.

Craft Time

paper plate duck craft

We made paper plate ducks just like the rubber ducks from “10 Little Rubber Ducks’  The feet are actually star shapes that we glued to the duck.
