Little White Duck

I've always loved the Little White Duck song.  I especially like this version of the book, but I only have a small board book copy which is hard to use with a large group, and which I believe is missing some of the pages from the larger copy.  

Sometimes I'll use my classroom's old, worn out, too-small felt set of Little White Duck, along with Ivan Ulz's version of the song.  But that set is so old, worn out, and too-small that I had to DO something about it!!  So, I did this:




Don't know this song?  Here are the lyrics:

There's a little white duck, sitting in the water
A little white duck, doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad
Flapped his wings and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little white duck sitting in the water
Quack, quack, quack!"

There's a little green frog swimming in the water
A little green frog, doing what he oughter
He jumped right off of the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little green frog swimming in the water
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!"

There's a little black bug floating on the water
A little black bug doing what he oughter
He tickled the frog on the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little black bug floating on the water
Buzz, buzz, buzz!"

There's a little red snake slithering in the water
A little red snake doing what he oughter
He frightened the duck and the frog so bad
He ate the little bug and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little red snake laying in the water
Hiss, hiss, hiss!"

Now there's nobody left sitting in the water
Nobody left doing what they oughter
There's nothing left but the lily pad
The duck and the frog ran away, I'm sad
'Cause there's nobody left sitting in the water,
Boo, Hoo, Hoo!

These will be making their debut next week with my summer campers!  Can't wait to see what they think :)

  1. I'm trying to save this to pinterest for Flannel Friday but only the book picture is showing as a choice. I really want to pin the felt set - is it about your settings or the location of the pic. I haven't had this problem before.

  2. That happened to me when I tried pinning it to my pinterest page. I scrolled down until I could see my photos, and then hit the pinterest button. That worked for me--let me know if it works for you. Thanks!

  3. If you're still having trouble pinning, I've also added it to my Etsy shop here--maybe you can pin from there...

    Sorry for the trouble!
