Childrens’ Rhymes and Verses Featuring Days of The Week etc.

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.

Little Robin Redbreast sitting on a tree;

H I J K L M N

He made love to little Jenny Wren

Dear little Jenny, I want to marry you;


V W Z Y Z

Poor little Jenny she blushed quite red.

 


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.
