Cats

Five Little Kittens
Five little kittens standing in a row.
(Stand all five fingers up on one hand)
They nod their heads to the children so.
(Bend your fingers in a ”nod”)
They run to the left, they run to the right.
(Move hand/fingers to the left, then right)
They stand up and stretch in the bright sunlight.
(Stand fingers, stretching high)
Along comes a dog, who’s in for some fun.
(Bring other hand out like a dog chasing)
M-e-oooow, see those kittens run!
(Have hand “run” behind back)

I Know a Cat (tune: “B-I-N-G-O”) 

I know a cat with perky ears, and Kitty is her name-o.

K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y,  and Kitty is her name-o.

She makes a sound and it’s “Meow”, and Kitty is her name-o.

K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, and Kitty is her name-o.

 

Read Rupert Can Dance by Jules Feiffer (Farrar Straus Giroux)

I’m a Little Kitty Cat (tune: “I’m a little teapot”)
I’m a little kitty cat
Nice and sweet
Here are my whiskers
And here are my feet
When I go out hunting
Mice beware
 Or you might just have a scare!
