Farmer Fred's Counting Fun

Play Audio

In the pigpen there were 4.
Farmer Fred put in 2 more.
That's 6 pigs if you are
Someone who is keeping score.

5 cows were looking really great.
3 more soon came through the gate.
They were not a minute late.
How many cows? There are 8.

7 chickens feeling fine
Were all standing in a line.
With 2 more the total came to 9.
Then they all began to dine.

At the end of the day
We heard Fred say,
"I added animals and took none away.
With your help it seemed like play!"
