Five Busy Honey Bees – Nursery Rhymes
Five Busy Honey Bees
Five busy honey bees were resting in the sun.
The first one said, “Let us have some fun.”
The second one said, “Where shall it be?”
The third one said, “In the honey tree.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s make some honey sweet.”
The fifth one said, “With pollen on our feet.”
The five little busy bees sang their buzzing tune,
As they worked in the beehive all that afternoon.
Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz!
Why nursery rhymes are good for children:
1. They are good for the brain. Not only does the repetition of rhymes and stories teach children how language works, it also builds memory capabilities that can be applied to all sorts of activities.
2. Nursery rhymes preserve a culture that spans generations, providing something in common among parents, grandparents and kids—and also between people who do not know each other.
3. They are a great group activity. singing nursery rhymes allows all kids—even shy ones—to feel confident about singing, dancing and performing because they are so easy to grasp and fun.
4. Most important is that they are fun to say!
