A Tune for Tuesday: Five Little Chickadees



Five Little Chickadees

Peter and Ellen Allard – “Sing It! Say It! Stamp It! Sway It” Vol. 2

Available on iTunes

Usually I find the “countdown” kind of song ( rather tedious,

but children love them. Maybe it’s because they can predict what’s coming,

and it’s empowering for them. Anyway, this song is special. It has a

gentle sweetness, especially with Ellen Allard’s lovely voice. And the chorus,

with the lilting “chickadee, chickadee,” is very catchy and children love to sing along.

I use these puppets, but you could make your own, or have the children

act out the parts of the “chickadees.”
