ifyourhoppyHello everybody and how are you?
How are you, how are you,
Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you today?
Come on everybody and clap your
hands….

Who’s that, tapping at my window,
Who’s that, knocking at my door?
Abby, knocking at my window,
Michael, knocking at my door.

See the little bunnies sleeping
Till it's nearly noon
I will go and wake them
With a merry tune
Oh how still!
Are they ill?
Wake up soon!
Hop little bunny, hop hop hop,
Hop little bunny, hop hop hop
Hop little bunny, hop hop hop
Hop little bunny, hop hop hop

The sticks on the bus go tap, tap, tap
… pound pound pound
… hammer hammer hammer
… roll roll roll
... scrape scrape scrape

Here we go Santa Maloney
Here we go Santa Maloney
Here we go Santa Maloney
As we go round about
Tap your sticks before you
Tap your sticks before you
Tap your sticks before you
As we go round about
Tap your sticks behind you …
Tap your sticks down low …
Tap your sticks up high …

If you're happy and you know it,
tap your sticks
If you're happy and you know it,
tap your sticks
If you're happy and you know it,
and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it,
tap your sticks

From Bedtimemath.com
We usually think of rabbits as small, cute, furry pets. But they can grow big, and the world record-breaking big bunny is Ralph, a Continental Giant rabbit. 55 pounds! Like most bunnies Ralph likes to eat carrots, cabbage, cucumber, corn on the cob, crackers, and even a few foods that don’t begin with “c” like apples and broccoli.

If Ralph has cabbage, crackers, carrots, corn and cucumber for lunch, how many c-word foods does he eat?

Little cabin in the woods
Little man by the window stood
Saw a rabbit hopping by
Knocking at my door
"Help me, help!” the rabbit said
Or the hunter will shoot me dead”
Come, Little Rabbit, come with me
How happy we will be!
Second verse:
Great big cabin in the woods …
Third verse:
Itty bitty cabin in the woods ...

Motor boat, motor boat
Go so slow
Motor boat, motor boat
Go so slow
Motor boat, motor boat
Go a little faster
Motor boat, motor boat
The waves are getting worse
Motor boat, motor boat
Put it in reverse!

We’re floating down the river
We’re floating down below
We’re floating down the river
On the O-hi-o
Jump all around,
Jumping Josie,
Jump all around
Jumping Josie
Jump all around,
Jumping Josie
Jumping all day long!

Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
As we have done before
Go in and out the circle…
Go up and down the circle…

(There was a)
Crocodile
An orangutan
A flying eagle
And a silvery fish
A bunny, a beaver,
And a crazy elephant
Na na na na na na

Octopus story
Three little worms were crawling along,
Crawling along, crawling along
Three little rice crackers singing a song,
Singing a song, singing a song
It started raining raining raining raining
raining raining raining raining
It started sleeting sleeting sleeting sleeting
sleeting sleeting sleeting sleeting
Oh my! What a surprise!
There was an octopus right before my eyes!

Great big dog came down the meadow
Wagged his tail and shook the meadow
Go away Dog, go away Dog,
You can’t have my baby.
Mama loves you, Papa loves you,
Everybody loves the baby (2x)

Mighty pretty motion

One elephant went out to play
Out on a spider’s web one day.
He had such enormous fun,
That he called for more to come.
An elephant and a hippo
Went out to play . . .
An elephant, a hippo and a rhino . . .
But then they all said “We are done!”

Where is shaker, where is shaker
Here I am, here I am!
How are you today, friend?
Very well, I thank you.
Run away. Run away.
...rolling on the floor
...jumping up and down
...shaking on my shoe

We’re marching to Kentucky,
We’re marching to the fair…
Wobble to the bottom,
Wobble to the top
Turn around and turn around
Until you make it stop

You put your shaker in
You put your shaker out
You put your shaker in
And you shake it all about
You do the Shakey Pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about!
Up...down... shake it all around
Near...far... drive them like a car
Here...there...everywhere

Math Moment

When you think of furry animals, you probably don’t think of elephants. But take a look at the woolly mammoth, and you might think differently.

Who weighs less, an 8-ton mammoth or a 5-ton elephant?

You put your paw in,
You put your paw out,
You put your paw in
And you shake it all about
You put your other paw in,
You put your other paw out,
You put your other paw in
And you shake it all about
The animals are dancing at the zoo
And they’ve invited you!

The giraffe is as tall as tall can be
He eats the leaves right off the tree
His neck is long, his legs are too;
And he can run faster than me or you!

The driver on the bus goes Move On Back!

Go in and out the circle…

The elephant goes like this and that
He’s terrible big and he’s terrible fat
He has no fingers
He has no toes
But goodness gracious, what a nose!

The elephants at the zoo,

They stomp and stomp

The elephants at the zoo
The lions at the zoo…roar
The monkeys at the zoo…jump

Tree Song 
by Lorraine Hammond
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the autumn the apples grow on me,
They drop, they drop.
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree 
In the winter the snowflakes fall on me, 
Brrrrr,  Brrrrr
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the springtime the blossoms grow on me.

They open, they open.
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree 

In the summer the breezes blow through me, 

I bend, I bend.
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the autumn the apples grow on me, They drop, they drop.

If you're happy and you know it, shake your egg(2x)
If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it, shake your egg.

We’re marching to Kentucky,
We’re marching to the fair
To see the senorita
With flowers in her hair
Shake it baby shake it
Shake it if you can
Shake it like a milkshake
And do the best you can
Wobble to the bottom,
Wobble to the top
Turn around and turn around
Until you make it stop 

Chick chick chick chick chicken
Lay a little egg for me
Chick chick chick chick chicken
I want some for my tea
I haven’t had an egg since Easter
And now it’s half past three, oh,
Chick chick chick chick chicken
Lay a little egg for me

A, B, C, D, E, F, G,  H, I, J, K, L, M,
N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Zed!

Mary had a little lamb
Little BoPeep has lost her sheep
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Old King Cole was a merry old soul
Georgie Porgie pudding and pie
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet

I start out green
Often fragile and small
I grow through 2 seasons
On something tall
But there are changes
When the nights turn cool
That happen to me
When kids go back to school
I’m a leaf! On a growing tree
Watch me turn color—
One, two, three!

kidbearIt’s no fun being sick. It’s even worse when kids are so sick that they have to go to the hospital. So a boy named Campbell Remess wanted to help out.

Find a teddy bear or other stuffed animal (or any toy animal). Count the eyes. Now count its feet. Does it have more eyes, or more feet?

I like cookies, I like cookies
Nice and sweet, nice and sweet.

Math Moment! From bedtimemath.org

Pygmy
When we think of monkeys, we think of those long-armed wild guys swinging through the trees. But this guy can’t do that so easily. The pygmy marmoset is only about 5 inches long and weighs less than half a pound! As you see in the photo, he’s not going to swing from tree to tree very well. It’s the smallest type of monkey in the world. Meanwhile, his far-off cousin, the mandrill, is the biggest type of monkey, weighing in at about 75 pounds. That might be bigger than you are…and definitely too big to wrap around your finger.

 
If you have a teeny marmoset hanging on each finger of your right hand, how many monkeys are you holding?

how many monkeys are you holding?

All around the cobbler’s bench
The monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought it was all in fun
Pop! goes the weasel
A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle
That’s the way the money goes
Pop! goes the weasel
Half a pound of tuppenny rice
Half a pound of treacle
Mix it up and make it nice
Pop! goes the weasel
  [Chorus]
Up and down the London road,
In and out the Eagle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

I've no time to plead and pine,
I've no time to wheedle,
Kiss me quick and then I'm gone
Pop! Goes the weasel.

No, not a stick but a leaf
No, not a leaf but a frog
No, not a frog but a duck
On the sixth of June
It rained like mad
And the triangle ruler
Got a crack
The balloons flew up
And all around
Now let’s go and see

smelly fish

There are lots of ways that fish in an aquarium can wow us. They could be huge, or spiky, or have a really weird shape. But often fish amaze us just by being incredibly colorful, and one of the most beautiful is the mandarinfish. As you see here, it’s blue with wild orange and white patterns, spots of purple and green, and frilly edges to its fins and tail. Unfortunately, the mandarinfish is as smelly as it is good-looking: to keep other fish from eating it, it covers itself in a thick mucous (like the goop in your nose) that tastes and smells terrible. As pretty as this fish might look, it won’t be a tasty snack. The tiny mandarinfish is only a couple of inches long. If you have 3 mandarinfish each 2 inches long, how long a chain do they make if they swim end to end?

Shake your shakers down

Shake it, shake it, shake it,
and then you settle down [Going to Kentucky]

Where is shaker, where is shaker 
Here I am, here I am! How are you today, friend? 
Very well, I thank you. 
Run away. Run away. 
...rolling on the floor ...jumping up and down ...shaking on my shoe 
Can you shake along with me?
 
Along with me, along with me,
 
Can you shake along with?
 
Put your shaker on your... knee

 

Math Moment! (From Bedtimemath.org) flake

Snowflakes are beautiful, but it’s hard to see exactly what they look like. They’re teeny and they melt fast. So photographer Alexey Kljatov figured out how to take the best snowflake photos ever. He sets up his camera with two lenses back to back, to magnify the picture even more. He lets the flakes land on dark wool so they show up well, and snaps 8-12 shots really fast before the flake moves or melts. Then he lines up those photos on top of each other to show all the little edges and lines and feathery spikes. As we see here, flakes usually have 6 sides, but can also have just 3! And as we know, every flake will look different from the next. What shape does the top right 3-sided flake look like?

Math Moment! (From Bedtimemath.org) legomathmoment
A big part of many people’s holidays is decorating the Christmas tree. People started using live fir trees as Christmas trees hundreds of years ago in Germany. Today you can put up a real tree or a factory-made one, but here’s a third idea: a Lego tree. The Lego Store in Sydney, Australia has built a 32-foot-tall tree of Lego and Duplo bricks. Tree branches are spiky and ball ornaments are round, but the builders did an awesome job making these shapes out of rectangular bricks. They also built Lego candy canes, presents, and even a Santa holding a surfboard. The tree, which weighs 3 1/2 tons and used over half a million Lego bricks, took 5 people a whole 1,200 hours to build. It’s hard work to bring a live tree into your house, but probably easier than carrying this Lego one!

A 10-year-old won a contest to have his Lego reindeer added to the display. How many Lego legs should that reindeer have?

Math Moment! (From Bedtimemath.org) tigerjap
Jeans are just blue denim cloth with some pockets sewn on. But at the Kamine Zoo in Japan, animals have helped MAKE jeans. The zoo took big rubber tires — a favorite toy of big animals like lions and bears — and wrapped them up in blue denim. Then they let the animals claw and chew away at them. Tigers tended to work alone; bears worked in pairs, and lions piled on in groups. When they were done chewing and scratching, the zookeepers rescued the torn, shredded cloth and sewed it into jeans. They sold the jeans to make money for the zoo. 
As you see in this video, (http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2014/07/10/330443249/jeans-designed-by-lions-and-tigers-to-benefit-japanese-zoo) the claw marks make you look like you rolled around in the lion’s den yourself! If lions, tigers and bears worked on these jeans, how many types of animals helped?

Math Moment! (From Bedtimemath.org)
A farmer in Argentina found some crazy-big bones in his field, and called in the paleontologists – scientists who dig up really, really old stuff. They named it the titanosaur since it’s so big: the thigh bone (top part of the leg) is 8 feet long! There were bones from 8 different titanosaur bodies, which they strung together to make one 122-foot-long skeleton. It’s so long that at the American Museum of Natural History, even with the body taking up two rooms, its tail sticks out the door a few feet. Not to mention that this dino stood about 46 feet tall, and the ceiling is only 19 feet high. But scientists guess that this giant weighed around 70 tons.

What numbers would you say to count the 8 titanosaurs?

I stuck my head skunk
In the little skunk’s hole 
And the little skunk said, 
“Well, bless my soul, 
Take it out! 
Take it out! 
Take it out! 
Remove it!” 
Well, I didn’t take it out 
and I didn’t take it out 
And the little skunk said
“You’ll wish you had, 
Take it out! 
Take it out!” 
P-U! I re-moved it! 

Oh, a-hunting we will go 
A-hunting we will go 
We’ll catch a skunk 
And put him in the top bunk 
And then we’ll let him go 

Presenting—the skunk! They look cute, but skunks strike terror in the hearts of anyone who stands too close. That’s because skunks have small “glands,” or little pouches of liquid, near their hind legs that are filled with one of the yuckiest-smelling liquids out there. When a skunk gets scared, it can spray that liquid at attackers to scare them off. Skunks aren’t big, fast, strong or tough, so that’s their one weapon. By the way, if you aren’t sure what a skunk smells like, you can actually make that smell at home, using food right in your fridge To make your own skunk smell, you mix rotten eggs, coffee, and chopped garlic.

How many ingredients is that? 
Here’s the exact recipe: You need 8 rotten eggs, 2 cups of coffee and 5 spoons of garlic to make a batch of skunk smell. 

If you're happy and you know it,
lift it high! 
If you're happy and you know it, 
shake it fast!
If you're happy and you know it, 
shake it slow! 
If you're happy and you know it, 
shake it low!

Math Moment:

Back in 2015 a guy named Mike Vegas ordered pizza and spicy wings from Domino’s. At first he ate only the pizza, but when he finally opened the wings, he found $1,300 of cash stuffed in the box! The delivery driver had taken all the money he’d collected from the deliveries before Mike and hidden it in the box, but forgot to take it out. Being a good guy, Mike brought the money back to Domino’s. They were so happy that they thanked him by giving him free pizza for a whole year. It just goes to show that being a good person pays off, especially if you really, really like pizza.

 

If Mike’s dinner had 8 pizza slices and 10 wings, which one had more pieces, the pizza or wings?

Tree Song by Lorraine Hammond

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the autumn the apples grow on me,

They drop, they drop.

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the winter the snowflakes fall on me,

Brrrrr, Brrrrr

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the spring time the blossoms grow on me.

They open, they open.

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the summer the breezes blow through me,

I bend, I bend.

This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree

In the autumn the apples grow on me,

They drop, they drop.

 

Great big dog came down the meadow

Wagged his tail and shook the meadow

Go away dog, go away dog,

You can’t have my baby

Mama loves you, Papa loves you

Everybody loves the baby

If you're happy and you know it,
shake your egg.

I like apples, I like apples,
Nice and sweet, nice and sweet.
Crunchy, crunchy, crunchy.
Munchy, munchy, munchy.
Good to eat, good to eat!
I like ice cream, I like ice cream
Nice and sweet, nice and sweet
Ooshy ooshy ooshy, gooshy gooshy gooshy,
Good to eat, good to eat!
I like popcorn...
What a treat, what a treat
Crunchy crunchy crunchy
Munchy munchy
Good to eat, good to eat!

Way up high in the apple tree
Two little apples smiled at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples!
MMM! They were good!

Little leaves go falling down
Orange and red, yellow and brown
Whirling, whirling, round and round
Down, down, down.
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
As we have done before
Go in and out the circle…
Go up and down the circle…

When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet
When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet
When the parachute is high
And floats up in the sky
When the parachute goes up
Stomp your feet.
... bend your knees
...lift one leg
...shake your head
...shout hooray

I start out green
Often fragile and small
I grow through 2 seasons
On something tall
But there are changes
When the nights turn cool
That happen to me
When kids go back to school
I’m a leaf! On a growing tree
Watch me turn color—
One, two, three!

Tree Song by Lorraine Hammond
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree
In the autumn the apples grow on me,
They drop, they drop.
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree
In the winter the snowflakes fall on me,
Brrrrr, Brrrrr
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree
In the springtime the blossoms grow on me.
They open, they open.
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree
In the summer the breezes blow through me,
I bend, I bend.
This is my trunk, I’m a tall tall tree
In the autumn the apples grow on me,
They drop, they drop.

Come up horsey, hey hey
Come up horsey, hey hey
Come up horsey, hey hey
Come up horsey, hey hey
Mama’s gonna buy you a little lap dog…
Put him in your lap when she goes off
Mama’s gonna buy you a little blue bird…
Gonna sing (whistle)
When she goes off
Mama’s gonna make you an apple pie…
Hush little baby, don’t you cry
Mighty pretty motion
Toodala
Toodala, Toodala
Mighty pretty motion,
Toodala,
Toodala la lady.
Rock old Soney,
Toodala . . .
Clap your hands . . .
Stamp your feet . . .
Goodbye, story time!
