Themed Rhymes

The following rhymes are from Mamalisa’s website:

The Clock

There’s a neat little clock,
In the schoolroom it stands,
And it points to the time
With its two little hands.

And may we, like the clock,
Keep a face clean and bright,
With hands ever ready
To do what is right.

This is the Way We Wash our Hands
(To the tune of Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)

This is the way we wash our hands
Wash our hands, wash our hands,
This is the way we wash our hands
In the afternoon (or “To keep us very healthy”)

(You can continue with washing other body parts or substitute the line “This is the way we brush our teeth”.)

Here’s a song about washing away germs:


Wash your face and hands with soap,
Wash them every day!
Keeping clean by using soap
Will help keep germs away

Vegetable Rhyme

I like potatoes, especially with tomatoes.
And I’ll have more peas if you please.
I devour zucchini, even when they’re teeny.
My favorite’s broccoli and cheese.

Michael Rosen’s Food Song

Eat your food, don’t wear it.
Pass your plate and share it.
Eat your food, I swear it
makes you grow up strong.
Try your very best
not to make a mess mess.
Eat your food, don’t wear it.
Chew it up, so long.
