I’m A Little Teapot is an American novelty song about the heating and pouring of a teapot or a whistling tea kettle.

The song was originally written by George Harold Sanders and Clarence Z. Kelley and published in 1939.

By 1941, a Newsweek article referred to the song as “the next inane novelty song to sweep the country”. (Source: Wikipedia)

It is a favourite traditional Nursery Rhyme song packed with potential for early childhood learning. Also, it is a simple song and easy to sing.

The actions that accompany the song help children with their gross motor skills, which in turn activates their executive brain function.

I’m a little teapot, short and stout.
Here is my handle, here is my spout.
(Stand with one hand on hip and the other out to the side, for the spout) 
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout,
Tip me over, pour me out!
(Bend body sideways, as if pouring out tea)

Teaching Points: action, gross motor skills, improvisation, drama.
