The Crocodile That Smoke




Last month my Lil Aple got a new teacher from China and I am so happy that she finally can speak a more proper mandarin. One day she sang a finger game:

只猴子荡秋千

好像鳄鱼会抽煙

鳄鱼来了鳄鱼来了,

啊呜啊呜啊呜。。。


Five little  monkeys playing swing,

Look like a crocodile smoking,

A long came Mr. Crocodile,

Um, Um, Um.....


I was like WTF?
Look like a crocodile that smokes? 
Because I never heard this song before so I really don know why the teacher taught her to sing a crocodile that is SMOKING...

  


Two weeks later, Lil Aple sings again:


只猴子荡秋千

嘲笑鳄鱼被水淹,

鳄鱼来了鳄鱼来了,

啊呜啊呜啊呜。。。


Five little  monkeys playing swing,

Teasing crocodile was drown,

A long came Mr. Crocodile,

Um, Um, Um.....



Ah... That should be the correct one =)

You can chk out in google, this is a game for the children to play wit their fingers, after the croc eaten one monkey it reduce to 4 then 3,2 and none left. The kids will know how to subtract and have fun too =)
