Found a Feather Sung to: “Oh, My Darling Clementine”
Found a feather, found a feather, found a feather on the ground.
Oh, I am so very lucky a feather to have found.
Picked it up, picked it up, picked it up just like that,
Picked up that pretty feather then I put it in my hat.
Found a feather, found a feather, found a feather on the ground.
Oh, I am so very lucky a feather to have found.

Way up in the sky (Song with movements)
Way up in the sky,
The little birds fly.
While down in their nest,
The little birds rest.
With a wing on the left
And a wing on the right
The little birdies sleep all through the night.
Shhh,
They’re sleeping.
The bright sun comes up.
The dew falls away.
Good morning, good morning
The little birds say.

Five Crows all Shiny Black

Five Crows all Shiny Black (Sung to: “Five Green and Speckled Frogs”)
Five crows all shiny black,
Sat on a scarecrow’s back,
eating some most delicious corn …
yum yum!
Scarecrow winked and shouted “Boo!”
Scared one crow and away he flew,
now there are four black shiny crows, caw caw!

It’s time to say goodbye.

Literacy Tip

Use books to help teach new words. Books can teach less common words, words that children may not hear in everyday conversation. As you read, talk about what these words mean.
