Will the little red hen get any help so she can make her delicious bread?
THE ELEPHANT TEAM
One elephant went out one day, to clean up a really big mess she made.
She had such enormous fun, that she called for another elephant to come.
[keep adding elephants until…]
Five elephants went out one day, to clean up a really big mess they made.
They had such enormous fun, and they had so much help they soon were done.
We did a feltkit version of "The Enormous Turnip," and all worked together to pull that gigantic vegetable out of the ground.
WORKING TOGETHER (From Miss Katy)
I'm the shoe brush [hold up one hand]
I'm the shoe [hold up the other hand]
Together we can polish true
Brush, brush, brush [Do a brushing motion on feet or shoes]
I'm the dustpan [hold up one hand]
I'm the broom [hold up the other hand]
Together we can sweep a room
Sweep, sweep, sweep [Pretend to sweep a broom into a dustpan]
I’m the spoon [hold up one hand]
I’m the pot [hold up the other hand]
Together we make great food hot
Stir, stir, stir [Stir your delicious food]
I’m the driver [hold up one hand]
I’m the car [hold up the other hand]
Together we can drive you far
Vroom, vroom, vroom [Drive like a maniac]
More Songs and Stories to Enjoy
Red Knit Cap Girl leads the way as the animals of the forest, even fox, work together to create a resource for everyone to use.
THE MORE WE WORK TOGETHER
The more we work together, together, together
The more we work together the happier we’ll be.
‘Cause your hands are helping, and my hands are helping
The more we work together, the happier we’ll be.
Mice in a mice race are in it for themselves, until they see the hazards that await.
