Songs Inspired by the Common Core Exemplars for Kindergarten and First Grade


Mr. Popper spends his free time learning all about Antarctica
The wild adventures of Admiral Drake sound really fun
It's so boring at teh North Pole. (Why?) There's no penguins
It's so fun down in Antarctica. (Why?) All the penguins
And now at the Popper house. (What?) It's Mr. Popper's penguins
Mr. Popper's penguins

Mr. Popper got a mysterious package and he opened it up
To his delight inside the package was a funny little penguin pup
When that penguin got lonely, (What?) he got another one
When thosse penguins have babies, (What?) stories' just begun
That's twelve total penguins

What are their names?
Captain Cook (honk), Greta (honk), Columbus (honk), Victoria (honk)
Nelson (honk), Jenny (honk), Magellan (honk), Adalena (honk)
Scott (honk), Isabel (honk), Ferdinand (honk), Lousia, ... Louisa? (honk)

Mr. Popper's penguins, Mr. Popper's penguins (x3)
