“Sheep Dog and Sheep Sheep”

Sheep is an expert at protecting sheep—or so she thinks until one happy afternoon when she bumps into a very hairy someone on the farm.

“Who are you?” she asks.

“I’m the sheep dog!” the someone says. “I watch the sheep.”

Holy begonia! Sheep knows this can’t be right. After all, she’s the pro! Sheep goes off to get everything Sheep Dog needs to get the job done, but each time she goes, something almost happens to Sheep…   and it’s Sheep Dog who saves the day!

 

WATCH and LISTEN to the publisher’s story time for Sheep Dog and Sheep Sheep by Eric Barclay:

 

ACTION RHYME:  Five White and Fluffy Sheep (tune: Five Green and Speckled Frogs)

Five white and fluffy sheep  (hold up five fingers)
In the pasture fast asleep  (place hands together and lean side of head on them)
Their wool kept them cozy all night long  (hug yourself)
Snore! Snore!  (make snore sounds)
The farmer slipped away with one  (hold up one finger)
And sheared the wool till he was done  (clap)
Then there were 4 white fluffy sheep  (hold up four fingers)
Baa! Baa!  (baa like a sheep!)


Continue counting down and end with:
Then there were no more fluffy sheep!
All sheared!

 

SONG: Mary Had a Little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go

He followed her to school one day,
School one day, school one day,
He followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rules.
It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play,
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned him out,
Turned him out, turned him out,
And so the teacher turned him out,
But still he lingered near.
There he waited patiently,
Patiently, patiently,
There he waited patiently.
Til Mary did appear.

Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.
