I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky tinker toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use a dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door
That's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy, what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinosauruses
I only likes hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me, too

Mom says a hippo, would eat me up but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian
There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there
and give him his massage


♥ There is a large size book great for group work
♥ The second book is appropriate for those children that are readers or it can be read to the child.
♥ The third book is the reader but in black and white so if you wanted to have multiple copies of the book or you wanted to send it home with the child
♥ The fourth book has pictures and words in a rebus read
♥ The fifth book has both the rebus read as well as a place for interactive single pictures
♥ There is a writing prompt and a page for writing. What other unusual pet could you ask for for Christmas?
♥ There is a coloring page that helps wrap up the unit
.

I find that I have a variety of students that I work with and having the same story in several different editions help to support all my students. I store them in a folder then give each child the edition that is appropriate for them.

I use this story for a variety of students from students
★ Preschool, kindergarten, and first graders as part of a poem choice
★ Fluency cases to practice smooth speech
★ Beginner readers
★ Students who need visual supports including students on the autism spectrum, students with attention deficit, students with cognitive difficulties, and students with speech or language difficulties.
