Song: There Was A Little Turtle

There was a little turtle,
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle,
He climbed upon the rocks.
He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow,
And he snapped at me.
He caught the mosquito,
He caught the flea,
He caught the minnow;
But he didn’t catch me!

Tip of the Week: Read the same stories over and over again. Children love repetition.
