5 currant buns in the baker’s shop
Round and fat, with a cherry on the top.
Along came ……. with a penny one day,
Bought a currant bun and took it right away.
4 currant buns in the baker’s shop….
No currant buns in the baker’s shop,
Round and fat with a cherry on the top!
Find or make some props and insert children’s names into the rhyme. Let them exchange a ‘penny’ for a currant bun!
Very good for early use of number and also for learning that one object (the penny) can be exchanged or stand for another!)
