Marco the Polar Bear

Marco the Polar Bear, (make a circle in front of the body with arms)
White as the snow, (extend out arms proudly)
Sat down on the ice (sit down)
Near the cold water's flow. (shiver)
"Lunch! I need lunch" he said; (rub stomach)
"I'll make a wish." (put hands together to make a wish)
He stuck in his paw (put the right hand down)
And came up with a fish! (hold up right hand and smile)

I Wish I Were a Walrus

I wish I were a Walrus A waddling on the shore.
I'd say, "Move over, here I come!"
And bellow out a "ROAR!"
I wish I were a Walrus A basking in the sun.
I'd flap my flippers, oh so loud To show I'm number one!
I wish I were a Walrus A strutting all my stuff.
If anybody picked on me I'd show them my big tusks!

Five Little Eskimos - (Hold up all fingers & push down one by one.)

Five little Eskimos by the igloo door.
One went out to feed the dogs, then there were four.
Four little Eskimos rowing out to sea,
One jumped on an iceberg, then there were three.
Three little Eskimos making fish stew,
One burned his finger, then there were two.
Two little Eskimos hunting for fun,
One chased a baby seal, then there was one.
One little Eskimo all his work done,
Went home to supper, then there were none.

My Igloo

My igloo is round with a tiny door.
(Make circle w/hands then hold hand low to the ground.)
It's made of cold ice & snow.
(Pretend to shiver.)
The inside is covered with blankets & fur.
(Spread hands over a wide area.)
So it's warm when the winter winds blow.
(Hug self to keep warm.)

I'm a frozen icicle hanging in the sun. (stand straight)
First I start to melt, then I start to run. (sag body)
Drip, drip, drip, drip.
Melting can be fun!! (sink to the floor)

Five Fat Walruses

Five fat walruses were at the North Pole.
One climbed up on the ice and fell into a hole.
Four fat walruses swam toward the ice.
One bumped an iceberg which wasn't very nice.
Three fat walruses had whiskers on their faces,
One got bored and went to sleep; he didn't like the places.
Two fat walruses went to look for food.
One swam far, far away; he wasn't in the mood.
One fat walrus was tired of the play.
She flipped a good-bye with her tail and then she swam away.
