Five little Leaves + Many More Nursery Rhymes & Kids Songs By Robogenie

5 Little leaves so bright and gay is a simple nursery rhyme numbers song to help kids learn numbers and start counting from 1 to 5. We read this as a poem to celebrate international Poetry day and then watched this video song of the poem. The children loved it and developed a clapping beat as they watched.

10 Little Leaves | finger play song for children

A great song continuing our autumn theme. It encourages the children to use their fingers to count forwards and backwards to 10.

Sock matching

We have done lots of sorting activities at school. Have a go at this sock sorting one at home. This useful Practical Life activity teaches children about visual discrimination, matching, care of self, and assists with the development of fine motor skills. See if they can fold them as well!
