Down by the Bay

We listened to the song "Down By the Bay" by Raffi. We then wrote our own versions that included nonsense rhymes. Then we created art to show our verse of the song.

First we got our Thinking Skills book and drew a picture of an animal doing something silly that rhymed. Then we got a big piece of white paper and drew our pictures in white chalk. Then we coloured our pictures of our animals in using crayons, leaving the white chalk uncoloured.Then we dyed it with black dye. The dye turned our white chalk lines black.

This is my picture:

Down by the bay
Where the watermelons grow
Back to my home
I dare not go.
For if I do
My mother will say
"Have you ever seen a hog
Kissing a log?"
Down by the bay.
