MEMORY RHYMES

We all know that children learn
better if it is fun.

Here are some rhymes that can
be used during play that are not only fun but will help them learn
the alphabet and to increase vocabulary.

MONDAY’S CHILD IS FAIR OF FACE


Monday’s
child is fair of face,


Tuesday’s
child is full of grace,


Wednesday’s
child is full of woe,


Thursday’s
child has far to go,


Friday’s
child is loving and giving,


Saturday’s
child works hard for a living,


And
the child that is born on the Sabbath day,


Is
bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

 


On the First of
March


On the first of March, the
crows begin to search;


By the first of April, they are
sitting still;


By the first of May, they’ve
all flown away,


Coming greedy back again with
October’s wind and rain.

 


Spring
is Showery, Flowery, Bowery


Spring is showery, flowery,
bowery;


Summer: hoppy, croppy, poppy;


Autumn: slippy, drippy, nippy,


Winter: breezy, sneezy, freezy.

 


Monday alone


Monday
alone,


Tuesday together,


Wednesday we walk


When
it’s fine weather,


Thursday we kiss,


Friday
we cry,


Saturday’s hours


seem
almost to fly.


But of
all the days in the week, we will call


Sunday
the rest day, the best day of all.

 


Cut thistles in
May


Cut thistles in May,


They grow in a day:


Cut them in June,


That is too soon;


Cut them in July,


Then they will die.
