One Elephant Went Out to Play Song

(Circle Time, Puppets, Counting, Social Skills)

Practise counting numbers 1 to 5 during circle time or use during your “Animals” theme/unit. This pack comes with a large version of the elephants and web as well as a mini version. I use the large version on my felt board and the mini version on a wooden puppet holder I made from scrap wood. (Check out the puppet holder in the thumbnails for the Songs We Sing cards). There are also two song lyric posters and a cut & paste bonus activity!

How do you do it?
I place the web on my felt board and put one elephant on the web (which is attached with round velcro tabs). We count the elephant and I begin singing the first verse. At the end, I dramatically call, "Oh Elephant!" and make the second elephant come. we count the elephants again and sing again. I repeat this until there are all five elephants on the web. The next time I bring out the song, I pass the elephants out to the children and they make the elephants come to play on the web. It’s a great way to practise counting and learn about working together and taking turns.

What's Included?
- 5 Elephants (one numbered set and one blank set) and 1 Web

- introduction and instructions

- a “Songs We Sing” card
- two lyrics posters (one full colour and one colour light version)

- a mini version of the song pieces

- a cut & paste activity

It is great for school classrooms, early years/daycare centres, private homecare settings or even at home with your own children!

This is a standard letter size PDF digital file (no physical puppet is included.) It is a large file because I wanted the highest quality graphics to be included. Colour between the printed item and the computer monitor may vary slightly.

THIS ITEM IS INCLUDED IN THE "Songs & Puppets Bundle".
