Counting Nursery Rhymes



Preschool songs and nursery rhymes that involve counting are a fun way to re-inforce numbers and preschool math skills - concepts, like counting, time, measurement, position, volume, temperature etc...





Little Boy Blue

Five Little Speckled Frogs
1-2-3-4-5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive
Ten Green Bottles
One Two Buckle my Shoe
Mary at the Kitchen Door
Four-Leaf Clover
One, He Loves
Five Rosy Apples



Five Little Speckled Frogs

Five little speckled frogs
Sat on speckled log
Catching the most delicious bugs - yum, yum
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs,
quark, quark

Four little speckled frogs ...Repeat until... there were no green speckled frogs.



1-2-3-4-5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive

1-2-3-4-5 Once I caught a fish alive
6-7-8-910 Then I let him go again.
Why did you let him go?
Because he bit my finger so.
Which finger did he bit?
This little finger on my right.



Ten Green Bottles

Ten green bottles hanging on the wall
Ten green bottles hanging on the wall
And if one green bottle should accidentally fall
There'll be nine green bottles hanging on the wall.

Nine green bottles hanging on the wall -
repeat until there are no green bottles hanging on the wall.



One Two Buckle my Shoe

One two buckle my shoe
Three, four, knock at the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, a big fat hen
Eleven, twelve, dig and delve
Thirteen, fourteen, maids a-courting
Fifteen, sixteen, maids in the kitchen
Seventeen, eighteen, maids in waiting
Nineteen, twenty, my plate's empty



Mary at the Kitchen Door

One, two, three, four
Mary at the kitchen door:
Five, six, seven, eight,
Eating cherries off a plate.



Four-Leaf Clover

One leaf for fame, one leaf for wealth,
One for a faithful lover,
And one leaf to bring glorious health,
Are all in a four-leaf clover



One, He Loves (counting petals on a daisy)

One he loves, two, he loves:
Three, he loves, they say.
Four he loves with all his hear;
Five he casts away.
Six he loves, seven she loves;
Eight they both love.
Nine, he comes; ten he tarries;
Eleven, he courts, twelve, he marries.



Five Rosy Apples

Five rosy apples by the cottage door,
One tumbled off a twig and then there were four.

Four rosy apples by the cottage door,
The farmer's wife took one and then there were three.

Three rosy apples by the cottage door,
I think I'll have one and then there'll be two.

Two rosy apples hanging in the sun,
You have the big one and that will leave one.

One rosy apple, soon it is gone.
The wind blew it off the branch and now there are none.
