Chop Chop

Chop, Chop, Choppity Chop.

Cut off the bottom and cut off the top.

What there is left, we put in the pot.

Chop, Chop, Choppity Chop.


Pointy Hat

A little old lady with a tall pointed hat,

Knocked on my door with a rat-a-tat-tat.

I peered through the window to see who was there,

And off on her broomstick she flew through the air.


Leaves Are Falling

Leaves are falling, leaves are falling,

One fell on my nose.

Leaves are falling, leaves are falling,

One fell on my toes.

Leaves are falling, leaves are falling,

One fell on my head.

Leaves are falling, leaves are falling,

Yellow, Orange, Red.



Popcorn, Popcorn, sizzling in the pan.

Shake it up, shake it up,

Bam, Bam, Bam.

Popcorn, Popcorn, now it’s getting hot.

Shake it up, shake it up,

Pop, Pop, Pop.



Mix a pancake,

Stir a pancake,

Pop it in the pan.

Fry a pancake,

Toss a pancake,

Catch it if you can.


A Little Seed

A little seed for me to sow,

A little soil for it to grow.

A little hole, a little pat,

A little wish, and that is that.

A little sun, a little shower,

A little wait, and then a flower.


Five Little Peas

Five Little Peas

Five little peas in a pea pod pressed.

One grew. Two grew.

So did all the rest.

They grew, and they grew,

And they did not stop,

Until one day the pod went POP!



A Little rabbit on a hill

Was jumping up and down.

His fluffy tail was round and whote,

His pointy ears were brown.

But when he heard a tiny sound,

His eyes turned black as coal.

His little whiskers trembled,

And he scuttled down his hole.



Little snail, little snail,

On the rocks, you leave a trail,

Carrying your house upon your back,

Taking so long to glide down the track.

And even though you're not very fast,

You don't mind if you come last.


All About Me

Ten little fingers,

Ten little toes,

Two little ears,

And one little nose.

Two little eyes,

That shine so bright,

Two little lips,

To kiss goodnight.
