Actions / Signs

This song encourages students to be creative and use appropriate actions to mirror the lyrics throughout the verses and chorus.  It is recommended that the teaching begins with just the main chorus and clapping interlude as this will be the most accessible part of the song for most students – along with the final ‘woof’!

Some are big

Hold both hands out to the sides

Some are tall

Hold one hand flat and stretch arm high

Some are short / small

Hold one hand flat and reach down low

Others explore

Reach forward then out to the sides with both hands, as if separating long grass

Tiniest squeak

Point forwards and pinch the thumb and forefinger

Loudest Roar

Grasp forward with both hands, shaping fingers like a cat’s claws

Some like to sleep

Hold hands flat together, palms facing each other.  Rest the head on the back of the hands in a sleeping gesture

Lyrics >>

Some are big and some are small
From the the veggie eating herbivores
Some are short and some are tall
To the meat loving carnivores

Some like to sleep
While others explore
From the tiniest squeak to the loudest roar!
From the biggest beak
To the smallest paw
It’s animals I adore

Some are big and some are small
From the the veggie eating herbivores
Some are short and some are tall
To the meat loving carnivores

Some like to sleep
While others explore
From the tiniest squeak to the loudest roar!
From the biggest beak
To the smallest paw
It’s animals I adore

I like chickens with their pretty feathers clucking
Playing in their coop running and ducking
I like cows with their velvety skin
But my cat is my favourite thing!

From piglet to hog
From puppy to dog
From tadpole to frog
Don’t forget the hedgehog
From a pup to a rat
From a kitten to a cat

Some are big and some are small
From the the veggie eating herbivores
Some are short and some are tall
To the meat loving carnivores

Some like to sleep
While others explore
From the tiniest squeak to the loudest roar!
From the biggest beak
To the smallest paw
It’s animals I adore

I like dogs, they are cute and cuddly
I like rabbits hopping in the spring
Fluffy tails and the joy that they bring
But flamingo’s the real king of swing!

Some are big and some are small
From the the veggie eating herbivores
Some are short and some are tall
To the meat loving carnivores

Some like to sleep
While others explore
From the tiniest squeak to the loudest roar!
From the biggest beak
To the smallest paw
It’s animals I adore
It’s animals I adore
It’s animals I adore
It’s animals I adore
Woof!

Some are big and some are small
From the the veggie eating herbivores
Some are short and some are tall
To the meat loving carnivores

Some like to sleep
While others explore
From the tiniest squeak to the loudest roar!
From the biggest beak
To the smallest paw
It’s animals I adore – Oh yeah!
It’s animals I adore – That’s right!
It’s animals I adore – Mm-mm
It’s animals I adore
Woof!
