Sorting the Washing

Pic 1

A rhyme about counting up all the laundry around the house before popping it in the machine. Check out our Fun Stuff page for great activities to go with this poem.





One green sweatshirt
Hanging on the door.

Two striped T-shirts
Lying on the floor.

Three pairs of underpants
Screwed up near the bath.

Four red socks
Outside on the path.

Five little aprons
The grubbiest I've seen.

Put them all together
For the washing machine.
