Little duck goes, “Quack, quack, quack, (clap hands when you “quack”)
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack.
Little duck goes, “Quack, quack, quack.”
Swimming all day long.
With her feet she paddle, paddle, paddles, (paddle feet back and forth)
With her tail she swish, swish, swishes (shake bottom)
With her wings she flap, flap, flaps ….as she flies away (“flap wings” take duck off flannelboard when she flies away.)
BOUNCE: “Ladies Ride”

went up the hill,
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down
And broke his crown.
And Jill came tumbling after

HOW IT WENT:
It was a good storytime. I liked the flannelboard because it’s very simple, but you can point to the body parts on the duck, and then have parents interact with their child as they paddle, flap, etc.
I wish I had some other good infant duck books though.
