RHYMES AND FINGERPLAYS:

Let’s Put On Our Socks
(tune: Hickory, Dickory, Dock)

Hickory, dickory, dock
Let’s put on our socks
We’ll walk around
Without a sound
When we put on our socks.

Hickory, dickory, dock
Let’s put on our socks
We’ll tiptoe around
And won’t be found
When we put on our socks.

Hickory, dickory, dock
Let’s put on our socks
We’ll slide around
The slippery ground
When we put on our socks.

Hickory, dickory, dock
Let’s put on our socks
We’ll dance around
And jump and bound
When we put on our socks.

Five Pairs of Dirty Socks
(You can use actual socks or flannel board cut-outs)

Five pairs of dirty socks on my bedroom floor,
Mom washed the blue pair and then there were four. (remove blue pair)
Four pairs of dirty socks that belong to me,
Mom washed the red pair and then there were three. (remove red pair)
Three pairs of dirty socks, what’s a kid to do?
Mom washed the green pair and then there were two. (remove green pair)
Two pairs of dirty socks, I wear them when I run,
Mom washed the white pair and then there was one. (remove white pair)
One pair of dirty socks rolled up in a ball,
Mom washed the last pair, my favorite pair of all. (remove gray pair)
No more dirty socks, Mom washed them all today,
But wait until tomorrow, cause there’re more on the way! (throw all in the air)

Sock Pairs

(Use this rhyme to play a Matching Socks Game. Throw a pile of socks on the floor. Hold up one sock and say this rhyme. Then let your child sort through the socks to find the match.)

I have two feet on which I walk,
But I can only find one sock!
Here’s a sock I like to wear,
But I need a matching pair.
Look through the pile so you can see,
One that matches perfectly!
