Flannel Friday: Five Little Raindrops!

on April 22, 2011

I actually prepared early for this weeks edition of #flannelfriday, go me!  It’s a pretty simple one, but still fun.  And here it is…

Five Little Raindrops!  It’s a really simple poem I like to use in various storytimes.  I actually have quite a few “Five Little _____”.  Probably one for every theme you can think of.  Seth makes fun of me because they all sound the same, but the kids love them so that’s all that matters.  And who doesn’t love counting stuff when it looks so cool?  This particular flannel board has some bling added to it.  I decided to put some glitter on to make it more special, and because I love glitter.  Here is the rhyme, enjoy!

Five little raindrops plopping on the floor,

one plopped away and that left four.

 Four little raindrops dripping on the trees,

one dripped away and that left three.

 Three little raindrops splashing on my shoe,

one splashed away and that left two.

 Two little raindrops starting to run,     

one ran off and that left one.

 One little raindrop drying in the sun,       

it dried all up and then there were none!

And please, go check out all the other great #flannelfridays this week!

    Gotta have the glitter! The new book Cloudette has me wanting to re-do our Rainy Day storytime kit–this would work perfectly in it! Thanks for contributing!

    GLITTER. I bet the kids just love that extra sparkle!

    And it’s very true; kids always love helping you count out rhymes and flannels.
