Sing a Song

The Ants Go Marching

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one,
The little one stops to suck his thumb
And they all go marching down around the town
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching two by two,
The little one stops to tie his shoe
And they all go marching down around the town
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

Watch

What Kind of Animal

Try This

Ask your child, “What animal would you like to be and why?” Have them pretend to be that animal (for example, hop like a bunny!; bark like a dog!)

Read a Book

Here are two book recommendations for today. Check out the picture book collection at your local library, where there are lots of books to choose from! Find nearby libraries.

  • Animals Do, Too!: How They Behave Just Like You by Etta Kaner; illustrated by Marilyn Faucher
