Corn and Popcorn Rhymes, Songs, and Books

Corn and popcorn songs, rhymes, and book suggestions for preschool and kindergarten.

I'm A Little Cornstalk 
(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)
I'm a little cornstalk tall and stout,
see me grow and watch me sprout.
When I'm brown, you can shuck me down.
Boil me up and I'm the best in town.

I'm A Stalk of Corn 
I'm A Little Teapot)
I’m a stalk of corn growing high
Here are my husks oh so dry
When you pull them back
You will find
Juicy kernels sweet as pie

See the Little Kernel 
(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)
See the little kernel in the pot,
Turn on the heat and watch it hop.
When it gets all warmed up, it will pop.
Mmmm, it tastes good when it’s hot!

Pop, pop, pop
Says the popcorn in the pan.
Pop, pop, pop,
You may catch me if you can.

Pop, pop, pop
Says each kernel bright and yellow.
Pop, pop, pop
They are clever little fellows.

Pop, pop, pop
As they scamper 'cross the heat.
Pop, pop, pop
They are very good to eat.

Pop, pop, pop
Pop, pop, pop

The Popcorn Pop
Gary Rosen and George Story
In this fun song Gary invites children to jump up when they hear the word, "pop," but not when they hear "popcorn."

Pop! Pop! Pop!
Pop! Pop! Pop! (clap for each Pop!)
Put the corn into the the pot. 
Pop! Pop! Pop! (clap for each Pop!)
Shake and shake it 'til it's hot. 
Pop! Pop! Pop! (clap for each Pop!)
Lift the lid and what have you got? 
Pop! Pop! Pop! POPCORN! (clap for each Pop! Jump up on POPCORN!)

Popcorn Popping
One little kernel (Hold up one finger)
Sleeping in the pot. (Curl up and pretend to sleep)
Turn on the heat 
And watch it pop. (Jump into the air)
Popping, hopping popcorn (Hop around)
A munchy, crunchy treat. (Pretend to eat)
Pour on the butter (Pretend to pour on butter)
And let me eat! (Pretend to eat)
