Purple is Best By Dana Meachen Rau 


P-u-r-p-l-e (Tune: I've Been Working on the Railroad)
Purple, purple,
Purple's what that spells.
Purple grapes on the vine,
Purple Kool-Aid's fine
Purple's what that spells.

We Love Purple(Tune: Frere Jacques)
We love purple, we love purple.
Yes, we do. Yes, we do.
Purple grapes and eggplant,
Purple plums and grape juice,
Just for me, just for you.

Red and Blue
Red and blue, red and blue,
Mix them and find something new.
Purple like a fresh ripe plum,
Purple like a poor sore thumb,
Red and blue, red and Blue,
Mix them and find something new.

  • Find the Color
    (Tune: Do You Know the Muffin Man?)
    Oh, can you find the color purple,
    The color purple, the color purple?
    Oh, can you find the color purple
    Somewhere in this room?
    -Author Unknown

    Purple Cow
    I never saw a Purple Cow.
    I never hope to see one.
    But I can tell you, anyhow,
    I’d rather see than be one!
    -Gelett Burgess

    We Love Purple
    Tune: “Three Blind Mice"
    We love purple, we love purple.
    Yes, we do. Yes, we do.
    Purple grapes and eggplant,
    Purple plums and grape juice,
    Just for me, just for you.

    MAKING PURPLE Credit Jean Warren Preschool Express 
    What happens when red and blue are mixed together? Try these experiments with your children to find out.
    Use food coloring to make red and blue ice cubes in a clean plastic-foam egg carton. Drop one red and one blue ice cube into a glass of water and wait for a new color to appear.
    Squeeze drops of red and blue food coloring into a clear plastic bottle of water. Fasten the cap securely, then roll the bottle to blend the colors and create purple.
    Give each child a small ball of red play dough and blue play dough. Have them squeeze the dough together until the color of the dough in their hand changes to purple.

I have noticed that is true!
No one walks the way I walk.

No one plays the way I play.
No one says the things I say.
I am special!
I am ME!
There's no on else I'd rather be!

Here are my Fingers
Original Author Unknown

Here are my fingers and here is my nose.
Here are my ears and here are my toes.
Here are my eyes that open wide.
Here is my mouth with my white teeth inside.
Here is my pink tongue that helps me speak.
Here are my shoulders and here is my cheek.
Here are my hands that help me play.
Here are my feet that go walking each day.

Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes.
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose.
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes!
