I went to visit the zoo one day
Saw an elephant along the way!
And what do you think I heard him say?

Book I Dream of an Elephant by Ami Rubinger
Nursery Rhyme I Asked My Mother
I asked my mother for fifty cents,
To see the elephant jump the fence,
He jumped so high,
He reached the sky,
And didn’t come back till the Fourth of July!

Action Rhyme This is the Way
This is the way I stomp my feet,
Stomp my feet, stomp my feet.
This is the way I stomp my feet,
Cause I’m an elephant!
Other actions can include: Wave trunk, shake tail, etc.
Action Rhyme The Elephant Hokey-Pokey
You put your trunk in,
You put your trunk out,
You put your trunk in,
And you shake it all about.
You stomp around on your big feet
And turn yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about.Right ear in…
Left ear in…
Tail in…
Tusks in…
Whole self in..
