my little polar bear

Song: Polar bear, polar bear turn around,
Polar bear, polar bear touch the ground,
Polar bear, polar bear bend down low,
Polar bear, polar bear touch your toe.
Polar bear, polar bear slide on the ice,
Polar bear, polar bear spin around twice,
Polar bear, polar bear reach up high,
Polar bear, polar bear wave goodbye.

Book: If You Were a Penguin by Wendell Minor and Florence Friedmann Minor

if you were a penguin

Flannel:    Five perky penguins, Stood on the shore
One went for a swim, And then there were four. (swimming motions)
Four perky penguins, Looked out to sea (look around)
One went swimming, And then there were three. (swimming motions)
Three perky penguins said “What can we do?” (shrug shoulders)
One went swimming, And then there were two. (swimming motions)
Two perky penguins, Sat in the sun. (fan self)
One went swimming, And then there was one. (swimming motions)
One perky penguin said, “This is no fun!” (grumpy look)
They went swimming, And then there were none.(swimming motions)

Song: If You’re a Penguin and You Know It (Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)
If you’re a penguin and you know it flap your wings,
If you’re a penguin and you know it flap your wings,
If you’re a penguin and you know it, then your face will surely show it,
If you’re a penguin and you know it flap your wings,
…stomp your feet
…waddle around.
