Count on Me

Pic 1

A great little seaside poem to help children with number skills.

Check out our Fun Stuff page for great activies to use with this poem.

One for the sea
Two for the tide
Three for a donkey
Four for a ride.

Five for a sea-gull
Flying up high
Six for summer
And a bright blue sky

Seven for a castle
Built of sand
Eight for an ice-cream
In my hand.

Nine for holidays
In the sun
Here at the seaside
Ten for FUN!
