Crocodile Songs!!!

Have you checked out SuperCroc at the library? This is a great exhibit for the whole family.  In the Early Learning Center there is a tent and supplies for children to go on a expedition.

Singing is important for children because it slows down the language and they can hear the different sounds that make up words. Singing is fun to do and helps your child get ready to read. These songs are fun to keep the crocodile fun going at your home!

If you should meet a crocodile

If you should meet a crocodile
Don't take a stick and poke him
Ignore the welcome in his smile,
Be careful not to stroke him.
For as he sleeps upon the Nile,
He thinner gets and thinner,
And whene'er you meet a crocodile
He's ready for his dinner.
Never Smile at a Crocodile
Never smile at a crocodile,
never tip your hat or stop to talk awhile
Never walk - run away!
Say goodnight - not G'day!
Never tip your hat and smile at a crocodile !

The Alligator

The alligator snaps his jaws
(lay arms flat together)
Snap, Snap, Snap
(hands open and shut)
The alligator smacks his tail
(hands on thighs)
smack, smack, smack
(smack lips)
The alligator crawls away
(slither hands away from body)
Tap Tap Tap
(Stomp feet)

The Alligator Chant

Say this slowly. Clap when you say "Snap!"

Old Mr. Alligator looking all around,
Floating in the water without making a sound.
But don't go swimming,
If you hear this sound....SNAP!
