Flannel Friday: 5 Little Leaves

4 Sep

The kids in my toddler storytime adore “5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed” so much so that I get nervous to leave it out of my weekly plan, but this fall I’m going to try for “5 Little Leaves” instead, just to give myself a little break from the monkeys.  This rhyme can be found in a variety of places and I’m not sure who to give credit to, except that I am borrowing it from Boy Mama, Teacher Mama.

I created my leaves using an Ellison die-cut of the leaf and then cutting around a cardstock pattern on the felt.  The brown leaf is the stiff felt and was much easier to cut out, but I’m not if it will stick as well on our flannel board.  I also happened to have the puffy paints out from my acorn project last week, so I outlined each leaf in puffy paint (didn’t have red) to make the leaves stand out just a little more.  I’m hoping my storytime kiddos don’t revolt with a change to the typical plan!

“5 Little Leaves”

Five little leaves so bright and gay,
Were dancing in a tree one day.
The wind came blowing through the town, (whooosh)
One little leaf came tumbling down.

(4,3,2,1…)
