Ten Green Bottles… Nursery Rhyme

NEW Nursery Rhyme Mini-Series Adventure

Every week I will be posting a different nursery rhyme with one or two FREE worksheets accompanying it.

As you know most children love singing along to nursery rhymes.

They’re great for language development, learning sentence structure, new vocabulary and much more.

You will find that they are also a great aid for teaching ESL (English as a second language) or EFL (English as a foreign language) students.

As a teaser, I am starting off with Ten Green Bottles.

What you can teach with this exercise

Sentence structure

  • “There’ll be”
  • “Ten green bottles…”
  • “And if one… “

Vocabulary

  • Green
  • Bottles
  • Wall
  • Fall
  • Numbers 1-10

HOW TO

  • Print out the pages onto thin card. (These can be laminated if preferred).
  • Cut out the bottles and numbered squares.
  • Start off by placing number ten on the grid, and get your kids to line up the ten bottles on the wall.
  • Sing along with the song while decreasing the numbers. (The lyrics are included in the download)

 N.B. Some versions of this rhyme use sitting on the wall instead of hanging on the wall.
