A-Hunting We Will Go
(Australian Version)
A-hunting we will go,
A-hunting we will go
The Rainbow Snake will eat some cake,
And then we’ll let him go!

The Bandicoot will play the flute…
The fat Wombat will wear a hat…
The Platypus will dance for us…
The Cockatoo will wave at you…


Cuddly Koalas
(Tune of: “Frere Jacques”)

Cuddly koalas, cuddly koalas
Possums too, possums too
Wallabies and wombats, wallabies and wombats
Kangaroos, kangaroos

Five Little Kookaburras Sitting in a Tree
Five little kookaburras sitting in a tree,
Teasing Mr. Crocodile, "You can't catch me!"
Along comes Mr. Crocodile quiet as can be,
SNAP! - that kookaburra out of that tree!
Countdown until none are left..

Hop, Hop, Hop Kangaroo
(Tune of "Skip to My Lou")
Hop, hop, hop, kangaroo
Hop, hop, hop, kangaroo
Hop, hop, hop, kangaroo
Hopping around Australia.

Baby in a pocket safe and snug
Baby in a pocket safe and snug
Baby in a pocket safe and snug
Hopping with her mama.

A Kangaroo, A Kangaroo
(Rhythm of A-Ram-Sam-Sam)

A Kangaroo , A Kangaroo
A Frilly Necked Lizard and a Kangaroo
A Kangaroo , A Kangaroo
A Frilly Necked Lizard and a Kangaroo
Koala, Koala
A Frilly Necked Lizard and a Kangaroo
Koala, Koala
A Frilly Necked Lizard and a Kangaroo

Kookaburra
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh kookaburra! Laugh kookaburra!
Happy as can be.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Eating all the gumdrops he can see,
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra,
Leave some there for me.

Kookaburra flies from the old gum tree
Flapping his wings for all to see.
Laugh kookaburra! Laugh kookaburra!
Flying oh so free.

Kookaburra land in the old gum tree
Fluttering his wings for all to see.
Laugh kookaburra! Laugh kookaburra!
Happy as can be.

This is the Way The Kangaroo Hops
(Tune: "Mulberry Bush")
This is the way the kangaroo hops
The kangaroo hops, the kangaroo hops
This is the way the kangaroo hops
So early in the morning.

As I Walked to Town One Day
As I walked to town one day,
I met a cow along the way.
And what do you think that cow did say?
"Moo, moo, moo!"

Baa Baa Black Sheep
Baa, baa black sheep have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.
One for the master, one for the dame.
One for the little boy who lives down the lane.

Cluck, cluck red hen have you any eggs?
Yes ma'am, yes ma'am, as many as your legs.
One for your breakfast and one for your lunch.
Come back tomorrow, I'll have another bunch.

Hey, Diddle Diddle
Hey, Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle.
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such a sport.
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

It's Raining, It's Pouring
It's raining, it's pouring
The Old Man is snoring,
He went to bed with a cold in his head,
And he couldn't get up in the morning.

Rock-A-Bye Baby
Rock-a-bye baby in the treetop.
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall.
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

Mulberry Bush: Days of the Week
(Nursery Rhyme Time by Georgiana Stewart)
Here we go round the mulberry bush,
Mulberry bush, mulberry bush
Here we go round the mulberry bush
So early in the morning

This is the way we wake up and stretch…
So early Monday morning

This is the way we wash our hands…
So early Tuesday morning

This is the way we brush our teeth…
So early Wednesday morning

This is the way we comb our hair…
So early Thursday morning


This is the way we put on our shoes…
So early Friday morning

This is the way we eat our food…
So early Saturday morning

This is the way we read a book…
So early Sunday morning


Happy Days

Tuesday's cat is smooth as silk.
Wednesday's cat creeps through the house.
Thursday's cat can't catch his mouse.
Friday's cat will clean her fur.
Saturday's cat just loves to purr.
Sunday's cat will scratch his head and yawn and stretch and stay in bed.

Days of the Week
(Tune of "Adams Family")

There's Sunday and there's Monday,
There's Tuesday and there's Wednesday
There's Thursday and there's Friday
And then there's Saturday.
Days of the Week (clap clap)
Days of the Week (clap clap)
Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week (clap clap)

There are seven days in a week

Storytime About Time of Day

As children prepare to enter Kindergarten, they need to begin to have a sense of time and how long things take. Babies start life with a distorted concept of time, where night is day, and everything is “now.” Toddlers appreciate the comfort of routine, and can often recall the sequence of their daily activities: Breakfast is before lunch, lunch is before dinner, dinner is before bedtime…

Ten little fingers on my hand.

(Tune: “Mulberry Bush”)
This is the way we get out of bed, get out of bed, get out of bed.
This is the way we get out of bed, so early in the morning.

-This is the way we brush our teeth…
-This is the way we eat our breakfast…
-This is the way we go for a walk…

Tick Tock, Match My Clock
Tick, tock, match my clock
Tick, tock, match my clock
Round and round, and then we’ll stop

"The big hand is on the twelve, the little hand is on the three. It’s three o’clock!"
(Children can use their hands to imitate the hands of the clock)

When Mice Get Up in the Morning
When mice get up in the morning, they always say, “Good day.”
When mice get up in the morning, they always say, “Good day.”
Squeak, squeak! Squeak, squeak! That is what they say.
Squeak, squeak! Squeak, squeak! That is what they say.
Repeat with other animals.
