Silly Billy Alligators


You never get tired of learning about these giants.  Especially when they start off so small and cute.  Animal pictures 004

We hung out with a baby alligator and sang “The Alligator is my friend” and pretended to be alligators ourselves as we role played digging out a gator hole.

We ended the program with Karma Wilson’s fun rhyming story Frog in a Bog.  She takes us through the food chain in a fun, rhyming way.  The moral of the story is that if you are a frog, don’t rest on a half sunken log!


See how enthusiastic about alligators we are now!
