Rhymes and Fingerplays:

Quack, Quack

 Now I’m up

Now I’m down

See me waddle all around

Put my hands behind my back

Like a duck I’ll say “quack quack”

 

Two Little Ducks

Two little ducks sitting on a hill

One named Jack, one named Jill

Fly away Jack, fly away Jill

Come back Jack, come back Jill

 

Little Duck

I am a little duck that goes quack, quack, quack

And I’ve got lots of feathers on my back, back, back

And when I go down to the lake

I wiggle and I wobble and I shake, shake, shake

And when I go to sleep at night

I close my eyes so very tight

But in the morning when I wake

I wiggle and I wobble and I shake, shake, shake

 

Funny Ducks  

This funny duck went waddle, waddle, waddle

This funny duck went paddle, paddle, paddle

This funny duck went quack, quack, quack

This funny duck wiggled its tail in the back

And this funny duck, the very last

Jumped in the water and went splash, splash, splash

 

 

 

Art:

We made simple ducks using yellow, orange, and blue paper.  The blue paper served as our background.  We used the yellow to make our ducks.  The ducks were made of simple shapes: a circle for the head, a half circle for the body, and a smaller half circle for the wing.  I found a template for the shapes at http://www.allkidsnetwork.com/crafts/animals/farm/shape-duck.asp, but you can also just create your own shapes.  We used the orange paper to cut out triangles for the ducks’ beaks.

We put our ducks together and glued them onto the blue paper.  Children were encouraged to make as many ducks as they liked, in various sizes.  We then decorated our ducks with google eyes, feathers, and markers.

We completed our project by drawing a peaceful and picturesque scene around our ducks.
