Songs/Finger Plays for Preschool Lesson Plan: Gorillas

(sung to the tune of Ten Little Indians)

One little, two little,

Three little gorillas.

Four little, five little,

Six little gorillas.

Seven little, eight little,

Nine little gorillas.

Ten little gorillas say good night!



I’m a Gorilla

I’m a gorilla. (squat down, knees bent, knuckles touching the floor)

I’m a great big ape.

I sit like this,

But I can stand up straight. (stand up)

When I’m happy,

I jump up and down. (jump)

But when I’m mad,

I have a scary frown. (make a scowly face)

If you scare me, (point to self)

Here’s what I’ll do— (shake finger)

I’ll beat my chest, (beat chest with fists)

And try to scare you. (point to someone else)
