5 little speckled frogs

5 little men in a flying saucer

10 in the bed

10 fat sausages

 

... these all count down, so finding one less (or 2 less for the sausages one).

 

As for counting up/finding one more .... ummmm?!

 

I'm sure others can add more!

Here's a made up rhyme that might help:

 

One little scarecrow wondering what to do, along came another and then there were two. Two little scarecrows happy as can be along came another and then there were 3. 3 little scarecrows standing near the door along came another and then there were 4. 4 little scarecrows dancing a jive along came another and then there were 5.

 

less than:

 

5 little firemen standing in a row, 1 2 3 4 5 they go. Hop on the engine with a SHOUT, quick as a wink the fire is out. 4 little firemen standing in a row 1 2 3 4 ssh they go, hop on the engine with a SHOUT, quick as a wink the fire is out. 3 Little firemen standing in a row 1 2 3 ssh ssh they go, hop on the ngine with a SHOUT, quick as a wink the fire is out. 2 Little firemen standing in a row, 1 2 ssh ssh ssh they go hop on the engine with a SHOUT quick as a wink the fire is out. 1 little fireman standing all alone, 1 ssh ssh ssh ssh he goes, hop on the engine with a SHOUT quick as a wink the fire is out.

 

 

Others: 5 little speckled frogs, 5 little ducks went swimming one day

one more.. elephant song/ one elephant went out to play.. lots of variations for each region.. ours is I know different to lots used..

One Elephant went out to play,

Upon a spider’s web one day.

He had such enormous fun,

He asked another elephant to come.

 

Two Elephants went out to play…

Three Elephants went out to play…

Four Elephants went out to play…

Five Elephants went out to play…

 

(last time )

(five) Elephants went out to play,

Upon a spider’s web one day.

They all had such enormous fun,

but the spiders web broke and they all fell down.

Not sure of accuracy of all the words but a counting on one is "An elephant went out to play upon a spiders web one day the elephant had so much fun he called for another elephant to come. Two elephants........!

5 little penguins sitting on an iceberg,

far far away in a stormy sea

If one little penguin fell into the water (make a SPLOOOOOOOOOSH sound here!!)

how many penguins would there be??

 

etc, until all are gone and then:

 

there's a lonely little iceberg floating in the water

all on its own in a stormy sea

if one little penguin jumped onto that iceberg

how many penguins would there be??

 

and carry on until you have enough penguins!!
