  Why use songs and rhymes?

To learn new vocabulary
To reinforce existing vocabulary
To help with pronunciation
To gain the attention of the children
A great way to start or end a class
A fun thing to do
A five minute filler!

      Five currant buns

The Grand old Duke of York poem

      The Grand old Duke of York
        He had ten thousand men
  He marched them up to the top of the hill
    And he marched them down again.
     When they were up, they were up
 And when they were down, they were down
   And when they were only halfway up
     They were neither up nor down.

             The Pirate song
         When I was one, I banged my drum
                  The day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
  "We're goin' this way, that way, forward, backwards,
                    Over the Irish sea,
           A bottle of rum to warm me tum
                And that's the life for me"

          When I was two, I buckled my shoe
                  The day I went to sea
I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
  "We're goin' this way, that way, forward, backwards,
                    Over the Irish sea,
           A bottle of rum to warm me tum
               And that's the life for me"
    Ring A-Ring O' Roses
           Ring a-ring o' roses,
           A pocketful of posies.
            A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
             We all fall down!

            Fishes in the water
             Fishes in the sea
We all jump up with a one a two and a three!

              Five little ducks
         Went swimming one day
        Over the hill and far away

      "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
  But only four little ducks came back.
                       ...
And five little ducks came swimming back.
