Nursery Rhymes

Recommended Posts

Hey

 

Calling all Early Years workers. I am looking for New Nursery Rhymes to sing with my children. We fed up of the same old boring rhymes.

 

Any will help as long as they are fun and the children and staff enjoy singing them. My age group is 2-5 year olds

 

Thanks x x x x

Well........this is quite difficult as I don't know what you already do! xD

 

One of our faves is

 

A wise old owl with a pointed nose

 

Two pointed ears and claws for his toes

 

He sits in the tree and looks at you

 

He flaps his wings and he says T-whit T-whoo!

 

There are actions with that - sure you can work those out for yourself! :o

Well, one that I've always thought was rather strange - not necessarily advocating you teach this one - not sure how social services would view it :o

 

Peter, Peter, Pumpkin eater

Had a wife and couldn't keep her

Had another didn't love her

Up the chimney he did shove her.

 

 

As sunnyday says, hard to answer without knowing which you already sing.

 

Action and number rhymes are always good;

 

Here are grandma's glasses

 

Dingle dangle scarecrow

 

London Bridge is falling down

 

Oranges and Lemons

 

5 little ducks went swimming one day

 

5 cheeky monkeys swingng in a tree

 

5 naughty monkeys jumping on the bed

 

10 little aliens

Thanks for that, one of our children keeps getting half way through this version and forgetting and I keep meaning to find the rest of the rhyme - now I have!

WE asked our children/parents to write down their favourite rhymes from home and made them into a book, to use in class. They were a mix of the usual and some I hadn't seen before, some were personalised to the children. They love reading them and talking about who says them at home.

Our current favourite (well the children's!) is

 

I'm a tiny caterpillar on a leaf (wiggle wiggle)

I'm a tiny caterpillar on a leaf (wigle wiggle)

I'm a tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar

a tiny caterpillar on a leaf wiggle wiggle

 

I will eat the leave around me until I'm full (munch munch)

[repeat as above]

 

A cocoon is what I'm spinning for my home (spin spin)

 

 

I will be a butterfly and fly away (flap flap)

 

I think it's sung to the tune of 'she'll be coming round the mountain'
