 Songs & Rhymes

Rhyme: Five Pairs of Dirty Socks
(with Felt Board socks and Washing Machine)

Five pairs of dirty socks
On my bedroom floor
Mom washed the BLUE pair
And then there were four

Four pairs of dirty socks
They belong to me
Dad washed the PINK pair
And then there were three

Three pairs of dirty socks
What’s a kid to do?
Brother washed the RED pair
And then there were two 

Two pairs of dirty socks
I wear them when I run
Sister washed the YELLOW pair
And then there was one

One pair of dirty socks
One and only one
I guess I’ll wash the ORANGE pair
And then there will be none.

No more pairs of dirty socks
We washed them all today,
But wait until tomorrow
More are on the way!

(Hide a pair in the washing machine and have kids guess which color is missing)

Song: On My Head I Wear My Hat

On my head I wear my hat.
It is such a silly hat that my head will wiggle waggle to and fro,
Where else can my silly hat go?

(foot, elbow, knee…)

On my hands I wear my hat.
It is such a quiet hat that my hands don’t wiggle they just go clap.
Then I fold them in my lap.

Song: Mary Wore Her Red Dress

Mary wore her red dress
Red dress, red dress.
Mary wore her red dress
All day long

(Repeat, naming items that the children are wearing)
