“Alligator in the Elevator” by Rick Charette is a fast action song with movement that helps children learn to follow directions and sequence actions. Activities are designed to go along with Rick Charette’s book with the same title available from www.rickcharette.com.
Thinking about “an alligator being in an elevator” expands children’s imaginations.
