Book: Turtles by Emily Green
Puppet rhyme: “There was a little turtle”
There was a little turtle
who lived in a box
he swam in the puddles
he climbed on the rocks
He snapped at a mosquito
He snapped at a flea
He snapped at a minnow
He snapped at me
He caught the mosquito
He caught that flea
He caught that minnow
But he didn’t catch me!
Song: “Turtle, Turtle” (Tune: “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”)
Turtle, turtle moves so slow,
Crawling, crawling, watch him go.
At the pond he looks around,
See his head move up and down.
Turtle, turtle wants to swim,
Now he slides and dives right in!
