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!
I Had a Rooster
I had a rooster, my rooster pleased me
I fed my rooster ‘neath the greenberry tree
My little rooster went cocka doodle doo
Dee doodle-ee doodle-ee doodle-ee doo.
We love Eric Carle books! The water color illustrations are so beautiful!
