In my quest in finding flannel boards that included boats I saw saw mention of turning the short story “The “The Mouse and the Winds” into on. It is one of the short stories included in Arnold Lobel’s book “Mouse Tales.” I like how the story builds upon itself every time the wind blows mouse’s boat. The tree is double sided. One side is plain and one side has flowers so that you can flip it over as needed during the story.
On a moonlit night when the stars come out.
There are nocturnal animals all about.
Whoo, whoo, what do I see?
A wise old owl looking at me.
Meow, Meow, what do I see?
A big black cat looking at me.
Eee, eee, eee, what do I see?
A little bat just looking at me.
Ribbit, Ribbit, what do I see?
A big green tree frog looking at me.
Squeak, squeak, squeak, what do I see?
A garden dormouse looking at me.
The mouse and the lion is a fable by Aesop. I used the Ellison Die shapes for the animals and the text is from Scholastic. Somewhere along the way work had acquired a fluency workbook from them.
