Flannel Friday: There’s a Bug on the Teacher

17 Jun

I can’t remember exactly where I found this poem, but I think it’s from The Goof Who Invented Homework: and Other School Poems. At any rate, the poem, and the book, is by Kalli Dakos.

Great for bug or school storytime. Or body parts!  You could also give each child a small plastic bug and have them move it to different parts of their bodies. The bugs could fly in the air during the AHChoo!

Like the bellbottoms?

Here’s the text of the poem. Move the bug around to each body part as it’s mentioned. Mine buzzes as it flies.:

There’s a Bug on the Teacher

by Kalli Dakos

There’s a bug on the teacher,

and it’s crawling on her shoe.

What will she do?

It’s crawling on her shoe!

There’s a bug on the teacher,

And it’s crawling on her pants.

Has us in a trance,

That bug on her pants.

There’s a bug on the teacher,

And it’s crawling on her shirt,

I hope it doesn’t hurt,

That bug on her shirt.

There’s a bug on the teacher,

And it’s crawling on her neck,

Everyone check,

It’s crawling on her neck!

There’s a bug on the teacher,

And it’s crawling on her nose,

Why do you suppose

It’s crawling on her nose?

Oh no! It's on her nose!

AhhhhhCHOOOOOO!!

There’s a bug on the floor,

And it’s crawling out the door!

Check with Melissa later today for the full Flannel Friday Round-Up!
