Flannel Story: Hearts

I can’t remember where I found the rhyme, so if you know, please tell me!



Hearts, hearts. How many do I see?
Hearts, hearts. Count them with me.
I have a red one, orange one. Yellow one, too.
I have a green one, pink one, and one that is blue.
I have a purple one, brown one, and one that is white.
And one last heart that is as black as the night.
Hearts, hearts. How many do I see?
Hearts, hearts. Count them with me.
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.


Flannel Story: Baby Faces

This is a great flannel that I found Mel’s Desk. She has another rhyme that she posted on her website, but I just used the two listed here.

To make these, I ended up making a Microsoft Publisher page with shapes for the face, eyes, and mouths. That way they were pretty similar in size.

Flannel Story, baby faces

5 Little Babies

Five little babies sitting in their cribs.
The first one said, “I need another bib.”
The second one said, “I wish I had my ball.”
The third one said, “I wish that I could crawl.”
The fourth one said, “Oh, when can we play?”
The fifth one said, “It’s been a busy day!”
Then “Shhhhhhhhh” went the mommies, and out went the lights.
And five little babies said goodnight.

10 Little Babies

One little, two little, three little babies.
Four little, five little, six little babies.
Seven little, eight little, nine little babies.
Ten baby girls and boys.

Animal Pairs

Animal Pairs


I didn’t have a rhyme for today’s felt. Instead, I chose four of the most “spring-like” animals from the Eric Carle illustrations and played a match the baby animal to the parent animal. Melissa, author of Mel’s Desk, had some great suggestions for what to do with these felts!

Something in My Garden

Something in My Garden

something in my garden

There’s something in my garden.
Now what can it be?
There’s something in my garden.
That I really can’t see.

Hear it’s funny sound…

Chirp, chirp, chirp. A bird is what I found!
Hiss, hiss, hiss. A snake is what I found!
Squeak, squeak, squeak. A mouse is what I found!
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit. A frog is what I found!
Thump, thump, thump. A rabbit is what I found!
