Here’s the last installation in the Lullaby series. It’s the classic nursery rhyme that all students should be exposed to! Great for listening to rhyming words and for dramatizing. You might want to use the book, Hush Little Baby by Sylvia Long, as a repeated read aloud. And here’s a link for retelling pieces for this lullaby.
Hush, Little Baby
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover
And if that dog named Rover won’t bark
Papa’s gonna buy you a horse and cart
And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
