A Number Rhyme

One, two, three, four, Mary at the cottage door . . .

Five, six, seven, eight, eating cherries off a plate!

This was a favorite rhyme for some of our kids; we used it in a preschool notebook that we went through in the early mornings.  Number rhymes are a good way for young children to learn counting, and when a picture is added too, numeral recognition can also start to happen.

The picture page above is from Preschool Beginning Notebook Pages Set I, an ebook with 15 print-out pages.  Am hoping to have Set II completed this summer, and have already started making the pages.

Using a read-through preschool notebook (with pages that changed now and then, according to interests and needs) was one of the things I really enjoyed when my kids were young, and I know they liked it a lot, too.
