Flannel Friday: 5 Little Turtles
These are dollar store turtles sunning themselves on "rocks" by the "lake". They're having a GREAT day until, uh oh!, who is that sneaking out from the grass? Ssssss...it's Mr. Snake! "Agh! said the turtle and he jumped in the lake!"
How many turtles are left? Let's count them.
I didn't use a specific rhyme for this - instead, we just talked through our turtles sitting in the sun on the rocks until Mr. Snake comes by to cause trouble! Then we recounted turtles and so on. I did this for all three age groups & it was successful - the pre-k got into it the most & that was great. This was a bit of a last minute effort that turned out, for the most part, pretty well! The group I visited today doesn't do well with longer puppet shows, so my standby option of the Tortoise and the Hare was out.
If you are curious about the prop itself - that's just a box covered with paper and gray felt rocks.
I am happy to be hosting Flannel Friday today; a dream come true! Check out the FF page for all the details and the Pinterest page is beyond fab!
