R is for Rooster…

This week we started the letter Rr.  We learned all about the rooster, sang a song about him and made a rooster too!  I remember singing this song when I was little and listening to it on my record player that I had as a little girl.  Wow, do kids today even know what a record is?  There are many more verses to it as well about a dog, kitty, cow, sheep and duck.  As you sing you keep adding on the sounds that the other animals make.  It is a really cute song and fun to sing!
