Teddy Wore His Red Hat

This flannel board is the creation of one of my fellow children’s librarians. I like not only how each hat is a different color but that it matches a job or community helper that children know. “Teddy Wore His Red Hat” is an easy flannel board to have children help participate in. You can pass out the hats before hand and a child can bring up the matching color of hat as you sing the song.

tune: Mary Wore Her Red Dress

Teddy wore his red hat, red hat, red hat,
Teddy wore his red hat all day long.

Teddy wore his white hat…
Teddy wore his yellow hat…
Teddy wore his purple hat…
Teddy wore his blue hat…
Teddy wore his orange hat…
Teddy wore his green hat…
Teddy wore his gray hat…
Teddy wore his brown hat…
Teddy wore his striped hat…

Five Big Lemons

Variations on a theme. I’ve seen this rhyme done before with apple. When I saw a lemon variant at Recipes for Reading I knew that I wanted to make it too. It fits in perfectly with a fruit themed storytime I’ve been putting together with another children’s librarian in my system. Even though it is simple and fast to put together, the leaves really made it extra cute. There is a piece of pipe cleaner connecting the leaves and the lemons together.
