Hello my friends!

I use this song both with younger and older children, first to develop the sense of rhyming and the ability of replacing the words in a song with other words/sounds/noises and, later on, i can bring up the letters and their importance of making words.

If we can learn the sounds and hear the different sounds that make up a word then we can learn how to play with them, how to change them and most importantly, we can learn to recognise what sounds can be paired with other sounds.

Also, for a little child under 5 it is a real achievement if he can clap in the rhythm and count which sound he can say out loud and which one he should mute.

There was a farmer who had a dog
and Bingo was his name, sir.

B I N G O (clapping)
B I N G O (clapping)
B I N G O (clapping)
And Bingo was his name, sir.

There was a farmer who had a dog
and Bingo was his name, sir.

* I N G O (clapping)
* I N G O (clapping)
* I N G O (clapping)
And Bingo was his name, sir.

And so on…practicing the Literacy, Numeracy and EAAD. 🙂

HAve fun!
