Colorful Mittens

When it is cold, mittens are great for keeping warm. I found this flannel board over at Adventures in Storytime. As I read through the rhyme, the goal is for kids to listen to the name of an object and think of a color that rhymes with that object. These mittens can be used with the plain side showing or the reverse in which I have taped clip art showing the object that I am saying. It is a great way to play with language and develop reading skills.

I’m Going to Wear A Sweater

This flannel board I copied from Wendy at Flannel Board Fun. The set has pieces for articles of clothing for cold weather as well as for rain. I’ve included the cold portion here. It is sung to For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow. Since the tune is simple, is is easy for kids to pick up on and join in.

I’m going to wear a sweater,
I’m going to wear a sweater,
I’m going to wear a sweater…
When I go out today.
