I picked up the rhyme for “Five Little Turkeys” on DLTK’s website. It has been a number of years since I have made this set so I can’t remember what I used for a pattern. I did make sure that each turkey was unique. The color order of the feathers is different for each bird. I usually pick a handful of kids to come up and help put the turkeys on the flannel board before starting the rhyme. They love to help out!
The Mouse and the Apple is written by Stephen Butler. It tells the story of a mouse who found a beautiful apple hanging on a tree. While he is waiting for it to fall off, a hen, goose, goat, and cow come to join him.
The apple that is hanging from the tree is not attached and can be pulled off in the end for the mouse. A shiny sequin makes it extra special. The patterns for the animals came from Downeast Thunder Farm.
