Information About Willoughby Wallaby Woo
Willoughby Wallaby Woo is a simple, silly tune that will get young children to laugh out loud and practice their sounds.
The song uses consonant substitution, which is a great reading skill for pre-school children, making it very adaptable for the singer. Exchanging names in the last two lines allows introduction and practice of new sounds.
A great idea is to get the children to sit in a semi circle or circle with the singer in the middle. The singer should use an elephant puppet that will gain greater engagement with the children and make them laugh louder as the elephant puppet sits on each of the children's heads.
