Down in the Garden

“Down in the Garden” is a rhyme that Heather at Lady Librarian’s Literacy created. This rhyme works great if you have a bunny puppet. I use my bunny puppet to take each pea pod off of the flannel board. I lucked out when making these pea pods since I had four shades of green and a shade of gold that matched the colors of peas. I love the effect when all of the colors are layered. For older children you can have a side little math tie in since there are 5 pea pods and 3 peas in each.

Use with bunny puppet.

Down around the corner in my garden so fine,
There are five little pea pods all on a vine.
Along comes a rabbit who wants something to munch.
He takes one pea pod and eats it for lunch!
