What Can a Hen Do?
A hen can lay a big brown egg.
A hen can stand on just one leg.
A hen can run.
A hen can walk.
A hen can say “Bawk, bawk, bawk”.
But do you know what a hen can’t do?
A hen can’t hug like you.
“Come my chicks, it’s time for bed.”
That’s what Mother Hen said.
“But first I’ll count you just to see,
If you have all come back to me.
Softly touch five children on the head while reciting:
Chick 1, Chick 2, Chick 3, oh dear,
Chick 4, Chick 5, yes, you’re all here.
You’re the sweetest things alive.
My chicks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.”
Are You Listening?
(Tune: Frere Jacques)
Are you listening, are you listening
To the hen, to the hen?
Hear the hen clucking,
Hear the hen clucking.
Cluck, Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck.
