Sod Room: Week Three & Four

Last week, we sang about Zoo Animals and this week we are singing about Transportation.

Here are a few songs to try at home!

The Animals in the Zoo
(Tune: The Wheels on the Bus) 

The snakes in the zoo go hiss, hiss, hiss
Hiss, hiss, hiss. Hiss, hiss, hiss.
The snakes in the zoo go hiss, hiss, hiss
All day long!

What other animals can you and your child think of? What sound do they make?

"Going to the Zoo" is a fun Raffi song to listen to on the way to the Lincoln Park Zoo or at home when your playing with animals. (Click the image below to find the song on

Living in Chicago, we regularly see helicopters. Many young kids here can tell the difference the sound of a helicopter and an airplane. Here is a simple song to sing about helicopters. I like to sing this song while spinning scarves above our heads like the blades of a helicopter.

(Tune: Frère Jacques)

Helicopter. Helicopter.
Way up high. Way up high.
See the blades are spinning. See the blades are spinning.
In the sky. In the sky.


Happy Singing!
