Five Apples in a Basket

Five Apples in a Basket Felt Board Magic

The first apple in the basket was bright and shiny red.
The second apple in the basket said “My ,what a cosy bed”
The third apple in the basket said “Make room for me your pair”
The fourth apple in the basket said “Please, move over there”
The fifth apple in the basket said “Oh dear, oh me, oh my!”
This basket looks like pastry—I think we’re in a pie!”

I’ve added this felt set set to my collection of Apple Harvest themed felt boards where we sort apples by size and colour. We count apples and match numerals and number words. We retell the Dr Seuss classic 10 Apples Up on Top. We sing and we chant. We play and discover and along the way we learn.

Five Umbrellas Waiting for Rain to Pour

Five Umbrellas Felt Board Magic

Five umbrellas waiting for rain to pour,
One was picked, and now there are four.

Four umbrellas, saying pick me, pick me!
One was taken, and now there are three.

Three umbrellas, wondering what to do,
One was chosen, and now there are two.

Two umbrellas waiting for some fun,
One was picked and now there is one.

One little umbrella, the rain is all done,
He went home and now there are none.

Five Coloured Umbrellas

Five Umbrellas

Five umbrellas stood by the back door,
The red one went outside, and then there were four.

Four umbrellas pretty as can be,
The blue one went outside, and then there were three.

Three umbrellas with nothing to do
The green one went outside, then there two.

Two umbrellas stood watching for the sun
The yellow one went outside, and then there was one.

Just one umbrella alone in the hall
The purple one went outside, and that was all.
