Fingerplay- Five Pink Flamingos

Five pink flamingos standing in a row (Hold up hand showing five fingers)

Dancing around and putting on a show. (Twist hand back and forth)

They danced to the left, they dance to the right (Move hand to the left and right)

Then one pink flamingo flew out of site! (Fly hand away)

*Repeat verses counting down to 1

One pink flamingo standing in a row (or “by himself/herself”)

Dancing around and putting on a show.

S/He danced to the left, S/He dance to the right

Then that pink flamingo flew out of sight! Bye flamingos!

Rhyming Song- Frank the Flamingo (Adapted from Jasmin’s World)

Frank the Flamingo

He sleeps on one leg

Then when he strikes a pose

Everyone says “yeah”

With his big, webbed feet

He won’t fall in his sleep.

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, Frank!


Frank the Flamingo’s

Long neck and beak

Pink from head to toe

From all the shrimp he eats

He eats them day and night,

He’d never miss a snack!

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, Frank!
