Nursery Rhyme Songs


This is a good transition song sung to the tune of 10 green bottles.

5 Humpty Dumpty’s sitting on a wall
5 Humpty Dumpty’s sitting on a wall
And if one Humpty Dumpty should accidentally fall….
CRACK! There’ll be 4 Humpty Dumpty’s sitting on a wall….

Repeat until there are no eggs left


Hickory, Dickory, Dock (clap w/ each word) The mouse ran up the clock (Left arm straight up & run Right fingers up L arm) The clock struck 1 (over head, clap hands together once loudly over head) The mouse ran down (Right fingers run down Left arm while saying words) Hickory, Dickory, Dock (clap w/ each word)

Hickory, Dickory, Dock (repeat hand motions) The mouse ran up the clock (repeat hand motions) The clock stuck 2 (clap twice) The mouse said, “BOO!” (say loudly with hands cupped around mouth…or what ever movement you choose) Hickory, Dickory, Dock (repeat hand motions)

Hickory, Dickory, Dock (repeat hand motions) The mouse ran up the clock (repeat hand motions) The clock struck 3 (clap three times) The mouse went Whee! (slide Right fingers down Left arm fast while saying words) Hickory, Dickory, Dock (repeat hand motions)

The children enjoy the “BOO” and Whee! parts. I also offer felt board pieces so the children can repeat the rhyme independently or with a small group of peers.

    During circle time hold a toy teapot and teacup and sing the first verse of “Polly Put Your Kettle On.” Pretend to pour tea into the tea cup while singing. Then pass the teapot and teacup to each child and substitute the word “Polly” for each child’s name. For example “Katie put the kettle on …” Let the child pretend to pour the tea. Kids LOVE to hear their names sung!
