Munch, Munch, Munch

Five little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A CATERPILLAR…….MUNCH, MUNCH

Four little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A BIRD………MUNCH, MUNCH

Three little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A PIG……….MUNCH,MUNCH

Two little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A HORSE…….MUNCH,MUNCH

One little apple hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A SCARECROW……MUNCH,MUNCH

Now the tree is bare
There are no more apples there
But when next fall comes around
Guess who’ll be there?
THE CATERPILLAR
THE BIRD
THE PIG
THE HORSE
and the SCARECROW
YUM! YUM!

Shapes Poem

The circle is a shape
That’s easy to be found.
It has no corners on it.
And is completely round.

The triangle is a simple shape,
I think you will agree.
Count its sides and corners
And you will find just three.

Here’s a shape that you should know,
A square has its name.
It has four corners and four sides
That measure all the same.

This shape is called a rectangle,
It’s found most everywhere.
It has four corners and four sides,
Sort of like a square.

But if you call this shape a square,
You would be very wrong.
Since two of its sides are short
And two of them are long.

Traffic Light

For this flannel board I have a trio of options to use with it. The first is a poem written by John Ciardi, the second is a rhyme, and the third is a song my MaryLee Sunseri

I Met a Man with Three Eyes
John Ciardi

I met a man that was very wise.
He had no hands, but he had three eyes,
One green, one yellow, and one red.
He had nothing at all but eyes in his head.
He looked at me and kept winking and winking
As if to say, “Guess what I’m thinking.”

–You’re making it up! It isn’t so!

–Oh yes it is. He is someone you know.
He lives on my street, and he can’t talk
But he knows how to say STOP, GO, and [SLOW].
And that’s all he says, all day and all night.

–Oh, now I know! –MR. TRAFFIC LIGHT!

Twinkle, Twinkle Traffic Light
Twinkly, twinkle traffic light
Standing on the corner bright
Red means STOP
Green means GO
Yellow means very, very SLOW
Twinkle, twinkly traffic light
Standing on the corner bright

I Have a Little Bicycle
Marylee Sunseri | Baby-O!

I have a little bicycle, I ride it to and fro.
And when I see the light is green—I know it’s time to go.
I have a little bicycle I ride around the town.
And when the light is yellow—I know that it’s time to slow down.
I have a little bicycle, I bought it at the shop.
And when I see the light is red—I know it’s time to stop!
