La scorsa settimana Angela ha proposto due canzoncine molto carine per contare in inglese. Oggi vorrei rilanciare proponendovene altre tre per imparare in numeri in inglese in modo facile e divertente.

Contiamo (al contrario) fino a cinque con le scimmiette salterine:

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Four little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped her head.
Papa called the Doctor and the Doctor said
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Three little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Two little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped her head.
Papa called the Doctor and the Doctor said
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

One little monkey jumping on the bed
He fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said
“Put those monkeys straight to bed!”

Contiamo fino a dieci con i piccoli indiani

One little, two little, three little Indians
Four little, five little, six little Indians
Seven little, eight little, nine little Indians
Ten little Indian boys.

E per i marmocchi più grandicelli un ultimo sforzo: si conta fino a venti

One, two
Buckle my shoe
Three, four
Knock at the door
Five, six
Pick up sticks
Seven, eight
Lay them straight
Nine, ten
A good, fat hen
Eleven, twelve
Dig and delve
Thirteen, fourteen
Maids a-courting
Fifteen, sixteen
Maids in the kitchen
Seventeen, eighteen
Maids a-waiting
Nineteen, twenty
My plate’s empty
