Five Little Snowflakes Felt Board Rhyme

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

You can use the rhyme with the templates a few ways.  Try giving each child one of the templates and encourage them to hold it up at the appropriate time in the rhyme (you can tape a straw or popsicle stick onto the bottom to make them like puppets...  The kids seem to like waving puppets around more than just holding up pieces of paper).

You could also make the templates as felt board characters.  Simply glue a small piece of coarse sandpaper or felt onto the back of each template so it will hang on the felt board.  Place the pieces onto the felt board as you do the rhyme.

Optional:  cover the templates in clear contact paper (bought as a roll from your local office supply store for under $5) to make them last longer.

Optional:  If you want to practice number identification with the kids, replace Template 1 (the snowflake with the face) with the Simple Shapes Snowflake.  Write the numbers 1 thru 5 in the center of the simple shapes snowflake.

One little snowflake with nothing to do.
Along came another and
Then there were two.

Two little snowflakes laughing with me.
Along came another, and
Then there were three.

Three little snowflakes looking for some more.
Along came another, and
Then there were four.

Four little snowflakes dancing a jive.
Along came another, and
Then there were five.

Five little snowflakes having so much fun.
Out came the sun, and
Then there were none!
