Five Little Ladies This is a fun little chant to do with many ages. Younger kids may only shout “10” with you at first. That’s OK! Older kids can listen for rhyming words. Begin with both hands behind back.

Five little ladies going for a walk.
Tap one hand rhythmically on floor as it “walks” to front
Five little ladies stopping for a talk.
Tap fingers and thumb of this hand together in a talking, puppet-like motion
Along came five little gentlemen,
Repeat first motion with other hand
And they all danced together and that makes 10!

Clasp hands together and rock back and forth in a dancing motion. Release and hold up 10 fingers at “10!”

Count fingers together, if desired.
