The Elephant Goes
Jackie Silberg and Pam Schiller

Jackie Silberg and Pam Schiller present this fingerplay,
along with over 700 others in

The Complete Book of Rhymes, Songs, Poems, Fingerplays, and Chants.

The elephant goes like this, like that.
(Move on all fours, slowly like an elephant)

He's terribly big.
(Stand up, reach arms high)

And he's terribly fat.
(Stretch arms out to the sides)

He has no fingers,
(Make fists, hiding fingers.)

He has no toes,
(Wiggle toes)

But goodness gracious,

What a nose!
(Point to nose)
