Ten in the Bed is a classic children's rhyme/song in the tradition of Five Little Monkeys... a countdown song with some great visual images. These songs work great with young learners because the lyrics repeat over and over, making them easy to remember, and the anticipation builds with each verse.
Here are the beautiful children of Daddy Ross Preschool in Buenos Aires, Argentina enjoying the Super Simple Songs version of the song. What stars!
Their wonderfully creative teacher, Val, sends along the following suggestions. If you have a group of less than 10 children you'd like to do this activity with, try adding some stuffed animals. Or, you can just start the song from whatever number of children you are working with...you don't have to start from 10.
Here's a nice online storybook version of Ten in the Bed you can use to introduce kids to the idea before singing the song.
