Hippos – Preschool

 

Introduction Good Morning
Action Rhyme Harriet Hippo
Harriet Hippo just happened to sneeze,
And all of a sudden, she fell to her knees.
It’s hard to get up
When you’re built like a truck,
But Harriet did it with ease.

Board Rhyme A Hippopotamus Sandwich
A hippo sandwich is easy to make.
All you do is simply take
One slice of bread,
One slice of cake,
Some mayonnaise
One onion ring,
One hippopotamus
One piece of string,
A dash of pepper —
That ought to do it.
And now comes the problem…
Biting into it!

Do a happy little jive.
Oh, I wish I was a hippopotamus.

Got on, got on, got on the city bus
And all, and all, and all the people said—you’re squishing me!A cow, a cow, a cow,
