Songs, Rhythms, and Fingerplays:

Hens Of

This little hen is BLACK,

She stands by a big haystack.

This little hen is RED,

She is tired and won't get out of bed.

This little hen is BROWN,

She is sad and wearing a frown

This little hen is YELLOW,

She's friends with the rooster,

Who is a funny fellow.

This little hen is WHITE,

She dances and plays,

Oh, what a sight!

This little hen is PURPLE,

She spends her days running in circles.

This little hen is GREEN,

She is the silliest hen I have ever seen.

This little hen is BLUE,

She lays eggs for me and you.

This little hen is PINK,

She goes down to the pond for a drink.

All of these hens live at the farm,

Out in the back in the big RED barn!

Old MacDonald

Old MacDonald had a farm,

Ee-i-ee-i-oh!

And on his farm he had some chicks,

Ee-i-ee-i-oh!

With a cluck-cluck here,

And a cluck-cluck there,

Here a cluck, there a cluck,

Everywhere a cluck-cluck,

Old MacDonald had a farm,

Ee-i-ee-i-oh!

(Continue the song with different farm animals: cows, pigs, sheep, ducks, etc.)
