Backpack Is a Little Bear Song

Backpack is a little bear,
Little bear, little bear,
Whose fur is soft and brown.

Backpack's playing hide and seek,
Hide and seek, hide and seek,
Where can that bear be found?

Backpack is at school today,
School today, school today,
To learn the reading rules.

He will make you laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play
Yes, Backpack is at school!

The Computer Song

These things we call computers are made of up many things.
The actual computer—is just this small machine.

This here is the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse
You'll find them at your school and maybe at your house!

Now look here at the monitor and see what I can do
When I move the mouse around the cursor’s moving too!

People use computers to read and learn and play.
Big kids! Little kids! They use them everyday.

Now you know about computers and so our song is done.
Won't you stay and read with me? We'll have a lot of fun.

What's the Weather? Song

What’s the weather, what’s the weather What’s the weather like today?

It is rainy, oh so rainy The weather’s rainy today.

It is windy, very windy The weather’s windy today.

It is snowy, oh so snowy The weather’s snowy today.
