Alice The Camel
Traditional

Lyrics:

Alice the camel has five humps (3x) 
So go Alice, go!
Four humps... 
Three humps... 
Two humps... 
One hump...

Alice the camel has no humps (3x) 
‘Cause Alice is a horse!

Activities:


Sing To Your Child: (bonding and rhythm & pitch development -- babies) Sing happily to your child while making eye contact. Hold up the appropriate number of fingers for each verse as you sing. For pre-verbal babies, having them listen to you sing while physically interacting helps develop brain connections. The more you smile, touch & interact with your child, the more they will learn. 

Sing Without Words: (audiation development – toddlers & ages 3-5) Sing the song with your child without the words, using "la," "ba" or animal sounds. By leaving out the words, this helps your child focus on pitch & rhythm. You can also try having your child echo each line as a call & response. This makes singing easier for children. 

Counting Activity: (language & reasoning development – toddlers & ages 3-5) Hold up the appropriate number of fingers for each verse as you sing together. You can also touch your child’s fingers as you sing. Touch has more impact on toddlers & babies than sound alone. In between each verse, you can pause and count while tapping your child’s body up to the number in the verse. 

Choose Another Animal: (making cognitive connections – ages 3-5): Ask your child to choose a new name for Alice. Ask your child to choose another animal (besides camel). Ask your child what the animal has to sing about (besides humps). Then, make up a new song using your child’s answers. Example: “Joey the Dog has four tails...” This activity is perfect for children developing their abstract reasoning, creative imagination and verbal skills.
