Rhymes & Fingerplays:

Five Little Children

Five little children going to school
Waiting for the bus and feeling so cool.
One little child can count to ten
She tells the others and they know then.
The second little child can tie his shoe
He shows the rest what he can do.
The third little child knows his ABCs
He says them when his friends ask, “Please.”
The fourth little child sings a lovely song
The other children sing along
The fifth little child says, “I see the bus!
It’s coming down the road for us.”
Along comes the bus, doors open wide
And five little children climb inside.

Mary Had a Little Lamb
(traditional tune)

Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb.
Mary had a little lamb, it`s fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went, Mary went, Mary went,
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 rules.
It made the children laugh and play, laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play, to see a lamb in school.

“Why does the lamb love Mary so, Mary so, Mary so?
“Why does the lamb love Mary so?” the eager children cry.
“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know, lamb, you know, the lamb, you know,
Mary loves the lamb, you know,” the teacher did reply.

We’re Going Back to School (Coronavirus version)
(tune: The Farmer in the Dell)

We’re going back to school
We’re going back to school
But this year will be different
When we go back to school.

We’ll have to wear a mask
When we are not at home
‘Cos this this year will be different
When we go back to school.

We’ll have to sit apart
And make sure not to touch
‘Cos this this year will be different
When we go back to school.

We’ll wash our hands a lot
And clean when we are told
‘Cos this this year will be different
When we go back to school.

We’ll do what teacher says
To male sure we are safe
‘Cos this this year will be different
When we go back to school.

We’ll also learn online
On days when we are home
‘Cos this this year will be different
When we go back to school.

But we will try our best
And follow all the rules
Although it will be different
When we go back to school.
