Sam Visits Peter (in a Birdcage)
When Sam was just an itty-bitty kitten he had an unusual friend. Many a day, Sam could be found with Peter the budgie … in his birdcage. Can you hear them play in this piece about unlikely friendships?
One day, Mom was about to let Sam outside. Before she opened the door, she looked down at him and said, “Sam, make sure you look both ways before you cross the street.”
Have you ever seen a cat look both ways to cross the street? Find out as you listen to this fun rote piece!
I’m Sam, Elite Mouse Hunter
While Sam had his soft, cuddly side, he was also a great hunter. Imagine the spies from 60’s movies. They would creep down corridors & leap onto the bad guys. Much like Sam would do as he hunted.
Plus, Sam had a cool factor that any of those spies would be envious of.
I HATE Walking in Snow
Have you seen a pet cat walking in the snow? They don’t tend to be very happy about the situation.
When Sam had to go outside in the snow, he would lift each of his feet high in the air trying to keep dry. His tail would twitch in annoyance. And, the first chance he had to come back inside … he would run quickly past us so we could shut the door. Brrrr! Too cold & wet!
Dreaming in a Patch of Sunlight
Sam had an innate ability to find the warmest, most comfortable patch of sunlight to nap in. What do you think he is dreaming of?
Your students will love this dreamy rote piece that’s perfect for recitals.
