Rhyme: Crocodile, Crocodile Turn Around

Crocodile, crocodile, turn around.
Crocodile, crocodile, touch the ground.
Crocodile, crocodile, dance on your toes.
Crocodile, crocodile, touch your nose.
Crocodile, crocodile, jump up now.
Crocodile, crocodile, take a bow.
Crocodile, crocodile, stomp your feet.
Crocodile, crocodile, take a seat.

Book: There’s an Alligator Under My Bed by Mercer Mayer

Rhyme: Five Little Monkeys

Five little monkeys
Sitting in a tree
Teasing Mr. Alligator,
“Can’t catch me!”
Along comes Mr. Alligator
Jaws open wide
And snap!
Goes another monkey
Deep inside

I learned this in sign from Marge Loch-Wouters at Guerilla Storytime at ALA Midwinter ’14. So much fun!

Book: Snip Snap! What’s That? By Mara Bergman

Rhyme: The Crocodile Goes
to the tune of Wheels on the Bus

The crocodile’s legs go crawl, crawl, crawl
Crawl, crawl, crawl
Crawl, crawl, crawl
The crocodile’s legs go crawl, crawl, crawl
All through the swamp

Tail goes swish
Eyes go blink
Teeth go chomp
