Children’s Rhymes in English

Learning English for children preschool and primary school age is always based on imagination, fantasy, movement, musicality, sense of rhythm and rhyme. Using poetry in teaching children English will allow you to see the result in the shortest time, accumulate a large vocabulary that the child will later use in active speach. Words that are so difficult to memorize separately store easily and spontaneously, when they rhyme with one another.


A wise old owl

A wise old owl lived in an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke. The less he spoke the more he heard. Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

Ladybird, Ladybird

Ladybird, Ladybird, Fly away home, Your house is on fire, Your children all gone.

Moo Cow, Moo cow

Moo cow, moo cow, How do you do, cow? Very well, thank you, Moo, moo, moo.

Two Little Birds Sitting On a Wall

Two little birds Sitting on a wall, One called Peter, One called Paul. Fly away Peter, Fly away Paul, Come back Peter, Come back Paul.

This Little Pig

This little pig went to market, This little pig stayed at home, This little pig had roast beef, This little pig had none, And this little pig went wee, wee, wee, All the way home.

Hickory, dickory, dock

Hickory, dickory, dock, The mouse ran up the clock. The clock struck one, The mouse ran down! Hickory, dickory, dock.

Goosey, Goosey, Gander

Goosey, goosey, gander, Whither shall I wander? Upstairs, and downstairs, And in my lady’s chamber. There I met an old man Who wouldn’t say his prayers! I took him by the left leg And threw him down the stairs.

Baa baa black sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep, Have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, Three bags full; One for the master, And one for the dame, And one for the little boy Who lives down the lane.

Ding dong bell

Ding, dong bell, Pussy’s in the well. Who put her in? Little Johnny Green. Who pulled her out? Little Tommy Stout. What a naughty boy was that To try to drown poor pussy cat, Who never did him any harm And killed the mice in his father’s barn.

Hickety pickety, my black hen

Hickety pickety, my black hen, She lay’s eggs for gentlemen; Sometimes nine, sometimes ten, Hickety pickety, my black hen.

Early to Bed

The cock crows in the morn To tell us to rise, And he that lies late Will never be wise.

Children’s rhymes and poems in English are first things that a child learns in English – these are little finger plays, poems about animals and the weather, our body and things around. Make up or learn a traditional finger play or actions that go together with a rhyme to illustrate its actions.

Using finger plays together with rhymes helps a child “feel” and this way understand the poem, its main characters and actions. Physical response is extremely important for children’s learning especially learning a foreign language. When a child is actively involved in activities related to poems and rhymes in English, to stories and songs in English the language they will remember not just the English rhyme but also the words and phrases they associate with it.
