Song: “Do the Dragon” – Laurie Berkner: Under a Shady Tree

Flannel:  Five Little Dragons
One little dragon with scales of blue;
Ran to meet the green one,
And then there were two.
Two little dragons sitting under a tree;
The red dragon joined them,
And then there were three.
Three little dragons, wishing there were more;
Along came the purple dragon,
And then there were four.
Four little dragons, happy to be alive;
Found a orange dragon,
And then there were five.
Five little dragons all out to play;
“Watch out, they breathe fire,” is all I have to say.

Dragon, dragon, shake your scales
Dragon, dragon, give a ROAR
Dragon, dragon, sit on the floor

Song: “Little Dragon”
Little dragon counts to three,
Little dragon bends one knee.
Little dragon touches his toes,
Little dragon touches his nose.
Little dragon makes a funny face,
Little dragon runs in place.
Little dragon lays on the floor,
Little dragon starts to snore.
