We Clap & Sing Hello

We clap and sing hello,

We clap and sing hello.

When we come to story time,

We clap and sing hello.

I See A Little Groundhog

I see a little groundhog,

Furry and brown.

He’s popping up,

To look around.

If he sees his shadow,

Down he’ll go.

Six more weeks of winter,

Oh, no!


Five Little Groundhogs

Five little groundhogs, all in a row.

Five little groundhogs, out in the cold.


The first little groundhog digs a home in the fall,

And curls up all winter rolled in a ball.


The second little groundhog comes out of his lair,

On February second to get some fresh air.


The third little groundhog looks up at the sun,

He then sees his shadow and goes on the run.


The fourth little groundhog at his dark shadow peeks,

He goes back to his burrow for six more weeks.


The fifth little groundhog hopes that skies will be gray,

So that he will know that spring is on its way.
