Fingerplay: Five Little Owls

Five little hoot owls siting in a tree

One flew away! How many do you see?

One, two, three, four.

 

Four little hoot owls sitting in a tree

One flew away! How many do you see?

One, two, three.

 

Repeat, counting down.

 

One little hot owl sitting in a tree

It flew away! How many do you see?

None!

Action Rhyme: The Wide-Eyed Owl 

There's a wide-eyed owl (circle your eyes with your hands)

With a pointed nose (make a beak with your fingers)

Two pointed ears (make ears with your fingers)

And claws for toes (wiggle your "claws")

He lives way up (point way up)

In the tree (spread your arms out to mimic the canopy of a tree)

And when he looks at you (point to the children)

He flaps his wings (flap your wings)

And says, "Whoo! Whoo!" (keep those wings flapping!)

Action Song: If You're an Owl and You Know It (Tune: If You're Happy and You Know It)

If you're an owl and you know it hoot like this "Hoo(t), hoo(t)..."

If you're an owl and you know it hoot like this "Hoo(t), hoo(t)..."

If you're an owl and you know it then your hoot will surely show it

If you're an owl and you know it hoot like this "Hoo(t), hoo(t)..."

 

*Continue with other lyrics:

Flap your wings (flap wings)

Blink your eyes (blink eyes and open and close hands to help mimic the movement)

Turn your head (turn it from side to side!)
