Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Baa Baa black sheep. Have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir

Three bags full;

One for the master,

One for the dame. And one for the little boy

Who lives down the lane

 

ONE LITTLE HORSE
One little horse went out to play, in the barnyard filled with hay.
He thought it was so much fun, he called to his friends, who came on the run.

Two little cows went out to play, in the barnyard filled with hay.
They thought it was so much fun, they called more friends, who came on the run.

Continue with this counting rhyme, adding more and more animals, such as 3 pigs, 4 ducks and five chicks. You can have your children act this out in person, or with toy animals or flannelboard cutouts.

The Old Brass Wagon

You’re the one, my darling.

Circle to the right the old brass wagon

Everybody in the old brass wagon

Everybody out the old brass wagon

“If I Were a Horse”*:

“If I were a horse, I’d neigh, of course,

I’d run and jump and leap, I’d have so much fun,

I’d never be done, if I were a horse, of course.

If I were a horse I’d stay, all day in the meadow so lovely and green,

I’d eat and eat and still stay lean, If I were a horse, of course”.
Old McDonald

Old McDonald had a farm

E-I-E-I-O

And on his farm he had a pig

E-I-E-I-O

With an oink oink here

And an oink oink there. Here an oink, there an oink

Everywhere an oink oink

Old McDonald had a farm

E-I-E-I-O

The Giving Farm Poem by vicki Witcher

Hens give eggs.

Pigs give ham.

Cows give milk.

Strawberries give jam.

Bees give honey.

Goats give cheese.

Farms give food,

I’d like some, please!

 

Mary had a Little Lamb

Little lamb, Little lamb,

Mary had a little lamb,

Its fleece was white as snow.

 

And everywhere that Mary went

Mary went Mary went

And everywhere that Mary went

The lamb was sure to go.

 

It followed her to school one day,

School one day, School one day,

It followed her to school one day,

Which was against the rule.

 

It made the children laugh and play

laugh and play laugh and play

It made the children laugh and play

To see a lamb at school.

 

This Little Pig Went to Market

This Little Pig went to market

This little pig stayed home

This little pig had roast beef

This little pig had none.

And this little pig went wah wah wah all the way home
