A Noun names a Person, a Place or a Thing!

Since the second day of school, we’ve been talking about nouns. Ask your child about our Parts of Speech Rap; he/she should be able to rap the first verse to you:) As part of our discussion with nouns, we looked at an American Folk Song called Fooba Wooba John (see below). The students identified nouns within the song as well as rhyming words. Look for our classroom version of the song coming soon…

Fooba Wooba John

An American Folk Song

 

Saw a flea kick a tree,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Saw a flea kick a tree,

Fooba wooba John.

Saw a flea kick a tree,

In the middle of the sea,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Fooba wooba John.

 

Saw a crow flying low,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Saw a crow flying low,

Fooba wooba John.

Saw a crow flying low,

Several miles beneath the snow,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Fooba wooba John.

 

Saw a bug give a shrug,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Saw a bug give a shrug,

Fooba wooba John.

Saw a bug give a shrug,

In the middle of the rug,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Fooba wooba John.

 

Saw two geese making cheese,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Saw two geese making cheese,

Fooba wooba John.

Saw two geese making cheese,

One would hold and the other would squeeze,

Fooba wooba, fooba wooba,

Fooba wooba John.
