“Five Little Ducks” rhyme

Five little ducks Phonological awareness means learning about sounds in words, and part of that is rhyming. Have fun saying the “Five Little Ducks” rhyme with your child at home. The Library also has many board books and picture books that feature the rhyme.

"Five Little Ducks"

Five little ducks went out one day (flap)
Over the hills and far away. (wave motion with hand)
Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack.” (talking motion with hand)
But only four little ducks came back. (flap)

Repeat with: Four, Three, Two, One, and No little ducks…

Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
And five little ducks came wandering back!

Picture Book DVDs

Subway Mouse dvd Young children love to hear the same story over and over again. It can get boring for you. Think of different ways you can talk about what is happening in the book or retell the story using objects. Another way to increase a child’s print motivation is to play a DVD or sound recording of a favorite story. The Library has many DVD versions of popular and classic children’s books.
