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!

Chirp, chirp, chirp. A bird is what I found!
Hiss, hiss, hiss. A snake is what I found!

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit. A frog is what I found!
Thump, thump, thump. A rabbit is what I found!
