The Croc

This song is just 20 seconds long.

Step 1

Play the song once and ask students to write down anything at all they hear.

Step 2

Give students time to consult each other.

Step 3

Provide a model on the board – like the one below – and ask students to finish each line.

In ___________________
There ___________________
He ___________________
Upon ___________________
He ___________________
But ___________________
And ___________________

Step 4

Give students time to follow the same model and write their own songs (or poems if they’re too shy).

Key (the text):

In the river
There lived a croc.
He liked to lie, lie, lie
Upon a big flat rock.
He dreamed of going for a walk
But he had no shoes
And he only had one sock.
