Reptile Songs


How ’bout Hap Palmer’s Sally the Swinging Snake? My kids LOVE it and we always make the letter shape of the letter we are studying.


My kindergarteners loved the boa constrictor song.

I am being swallowed by a boa constrictor, I am being swallowed by a boa constrictor. Oh no, he’s swallowed my toes. ( grab toes) Oh no, he’s swallowed my toes. Oh gee, he is up to my knees. (grab knee) Oh gee, he is up to my knees. Oh fiddle, he swallowed my middle.( wrap arms around your middle) Oh fiddle, he swallowed my middle. Oh heck, he is up to my neck.( put hand around neck) Oh heck, he is up to my neck. Oh dread, he swallowed my…(Gulp very loud) Oh dread, he swallowed my…gulp

I used this song for motivation on our snake unit. They loved it!! The song is also good for labeling parts of the body.
