It's Time for Bed rhyme and Activity
hen with chicks rhyme


Children will develop learn and act out a rhyme and learn about baby animals.


  • It's time for bed printout
  • Mother and baby animal printouts
  • Scissors
  • Small magnets or Velcro


Print animal pictures on heavy printing paper and laminate for extra strength. Attach magnets or Velcro to the back of each piece and use them on the flannel board or magnet board.

Circle time:
Sit in a circle. With the children, discuss the names, movement, and sounds of farm baby animals and their mother.

Let children pretend to be the different baby animals.

Rhyme and Play
"Come my chicks, it's time for bed."
That's what Mother Hen said.
"But first I'll count you just to see,
If you have all come back to me.

Softly touch five children on the head while reciting:

Chick 1, Chick 2, Chick 3, oh dear,
Chick 4, Chick 5, yes, you're all here.
(The chosen children (chicks) make the sound of chicks and walk in the middle of the circle to go to sleep.)

You're the sweetest things alive.
My chicks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5." (touch each child on their backs again)
Repeat and replace "chicks" and "hen"with other baby animals and their mothers.

Use mother and baby animals pictures on your flannel board while you recite the rhyme.

Make stick puppet and use them while reciting the rhyme.

Are You Listening?
(Tune: Frere Jacques)

Are you listening, are you listening
To the cow, to the cow?
Hear the cow calling,
Hear the cow calling.
Moo, moo, moo; moo, moo, moo.

Repeat with other farm animals also like pig, horse, hen, duck.

Farm Sounds
(Tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo,
Moo, moo, moo,
Moo, moo, moo,
The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo,
All around the farm.

The pigs in the pen go oink, oink, oink
The hens in the coop go cluck, cluck, cluck
The lambs on the hill go baa, baa, baa
The ducks on the pond go quack, quack, quack
The horses in the corral go neigh, neigh, neigh
