One, Two, Buckle My Shoe

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

This old-fashioned rhyme still works to help build children's counting skills!


  1. This rhyme will help your child's counting skills.
  2. Try showing her objects in groups of one, two, three, and so on, as you recite the rhyme together.
      One, two, buckle my shoe;
      Three, four, close the door;
      Five, six, pick up sticks;
      Seven, eight, lay them straight;
      Nine, ten, a big fat hen.
