Rhymes and Poems

If you have put your pea plant in the garden or in a pot in the back yard them you might have seen a wiggly worm.  Here is a fun poem for you to say.

 

There’s a worm in the bottom of my garden

And his name is Wiggly Woo.

There’s a worm in the bottom of my garden

And all that he can do –

Is wiggle all night

And wiggle all day

Whatever else the people do say;

There’s a worm in the bottom of my garden

And his name is Wiggly, Wig-Wig-Wiggly,

Wig-Wig-Wiggly Woo-oo!

 

Maybe you could make up some actions for the poem!

Here is another a poem for you to have a go at. 

I like the actions that go with it.

 

 

I’ve got a basket of apples

(To the tune of Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat)

 

I’ve got a bag of apples,                                Indicate basket with your arms

Picked from a tree,                                       Reach up high to pick apples

Apples rosy-red for you,                               Point to a friend

And shiny green for me;                                Point to self

Some of them are big,                                  Hands cupped wide

Some of them are small,                                 Hands cupped small         

Some of them are oval,                                 Oval shape with fingers

Some are like a ball;                                      Ball with fist

Some of them are sour …ugh!                        Pull a face

Some of them are sweet…mmm,                     Big wide smile

Lots of lovely apples                                     Fist on fist to indicate a pile

For you and me to eat.

Here is another nursery rhyme you will know but I have added two extra verses to it.  I hope you enjoy it.

 

Hickory Dickory Dock,

The mouse ran up the clock;

The clock struck One,

The mouse ran down,

Hickory Dickory Dock!

 

Hickory Dickory Dock,

The mouse ran up the clock;

The clock struck Two,

The mouse said BOO!

Hickory Dickory Dock!

 

Hickory Dickory Dock,

The mouse ran up the clock;

The clock struck Three,

The mouse said Wheeeee...

Hickory Dickory Dock!

Here is a rhyme that you know but I have added a new verse - see if you can learn it.  When you have learnt it maybe draw a picture to go with each verse and write a sentence about the picture.

 

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; 

All the King's horses and all of the King's men 

Couldn't put Humpty together again.

 

Along came the children

With brushes and glue,

And stuck Humpty together

As good as new!

We love to learn rhymes and poems in the Owlets class.

Here is the one that we learnt last in school - I have put the beginning of the rhyme to listen to - but you should say the poem to the end and don't forget to put actions to it.

 

Five little mice came out to play

Gathering crumbs up on their way;

Out came pussy-cat

Sleek and black

Four little mice went scampering back!

 

Four little mice came ....
