Snakes

HISSSSSSSS!!!!  Did you hear that?  Looks like some snakes decided to join us during Explorastory this week!  We recycled an oldie but a goodie: a snakes story time that we have done in the past.

Here is a link to the entire story time:

Snakes

 

Additional Rhymes & Fingerplays:

Five Little Snakes (makes a great flannel story!)

Five little snakes

Hid under Mom’s chair

My brother grabbed the red one

Leaving four there

 

Four little snakes

Swinging in a tree

The blue one slipped and fell

Leaving only three

 

Three little snakes

Wondered what to do

The yellow one took a nap

Leaving only two

 

Two little snakes

Basking in the sun

The brown one slithered off

Leaving only one

 

One little green snake

Lonely as could be

Went looking for some fun

And came and played with me!

 

Boa Constrictor

A boa constrictor  (move right hand)

May look like his sister   (move left hand)

But don’t make a fatal mistake  (shake both hands “no”)

A boa constrictor   (move right hand)

Can look like its sister  (move left hand)

And still be a dangerous snake

 

S-N-A-K-E

I had a snake

He was so fast

As fast as snakes can be

S-N-A-K-E, S-N-A-K-E

S-N-A-K-E, he is my favorite snake!

 

I had a snake

He was so green

As green as snakes can be

S-N-A-K-E, S-NA-K-E

S-N-A-K-E, he is my favorite snake!

 

I had a snake

He waved goodbye

He waved goodbye to me

S-N-A-K-E, S-N-A-K-E

S-N-A-K-E, he is my favorite snake!

 

All The Snakes

All the snakes are slithering,

Slithering, slithering

All the snakes are slithering

Across the grass

 

All the snakes make a hiss,

Make a hiss, make a hiss

All the snakes make a hiss

And smile at the sun

 

Snakes smell with their tongues,

With their tongues, with their tongues

Snakes smell with their tongues

And they can smell you!

 

I’m Being Swallowed by a Boa Constrictor

I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

And I don’t like it that much

Oh no no no, it at my toe toe toe

Oh gee gee gee, it ate my knee knee knee

Oh my my my, it ate my thigh thigh thigh

Oh fiddle fiddle fiddle,  it ate my middle middle middle

Oh heck heck heck,  it ate my neck neck neck

Oh dread dread dread, it ate my head head head

I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

And I don’t like it that much!

 

 

SSSSSeeeeeee you next week!
