How to use this teaching resource

  • This nursery rhyme is ideal for rhyme and rhythm. Clap / tap / jump etc to the great rhythm – taa taa taa taa taa taa ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti taa taa taa – clap on the taas / stamp on the tis.
  • Change the words around –
  • Start off with just changing the One a penny, two a penny – to One a clap clap, two a click click etc – change the ”penny” part of a movement type.
  • Then change more so eg… Red sweet apples, Red sweet apples. One a clap clap, two a click click, Red sweet apples.
  • So it goes – Adjective, adjective nouns, Adjective, adjective, nouns. One a verb verb, two a verb verb, Adjective, adjective nouns.
    Another great way to use these is to hand out the cut out sections (be it the phrases, or the words) and in groups children have to work together to place the rhyme back in order – or similarly – as a whole group start with the title – then whoever has the next section – comes forward and adds the next piece until the song is complete.
  • Print the A4 size for each child to pop into their nursery rhymes, poems and songs scrapbook – children ‘play with the words, letters and sounds’
  • Print (bigger onto A3 if prefer), pop onto coloured backing card, laminate and keep up on display to refer to often as a class.
  • Print (larger onto A3 if you like, laminate, and cut up ready for children to reconstruct – pop into your song / poem box
  • Don’t forget to really make the most of these poems / songs and put your detective hats on to search for rhyming words, circle phonic sounds, play ‘find the word’ games, look for question marks and other structures, lots of ‘playing with words’- it’s great fun to find all the word/letter patterns in poems and nursery rhymes.
