We learn the actual “Little Bunny Foo Foo” song/fingerplay first and work through that a couple different class periods. I make sure that they know my actions and my version of the story quite well before we watch this video. Then when they’re comfortable we watch this and whoa, do they get a kick out of it.
Once we’ve watched the video the fun part is to get kids to think about what details of the video were different from my version. If you ask them some critical thinking question you can easily get them comparing and contrasting and thinking about how things transfer from the song to the video. How did the lyrics change? Did characters show up that weren’t in the original version? What alternate words did they use? The kids love discovering the changes and then want to watch it again!
The best part is that this is actually a book by Michael Rosen. You can get this on Amazon for $.01 and use it over and over! I don't have it, but it's definitely on my wish list! Check it out here!
