RAINY was the Weather

Rainy was the Weather Felt Board Magic

Tune: BINGO
There was a day when we got wet
And Rainy was the weather.
R-A-I-N-Y, R-A-I-N-Y, R-A-I-N-Y
And Rainy was the weather.
There was a day so dark and grey,
And Rainy was the weather.
R-A-I-N-Y, R-A-I-N-Y, R-A-I-N-Y
And Rainy was the weather.

This is a super simple felt set to make. Having the letters on the board promotes the recognition of letters and builds an understanding of the ink between the name of the letter and what the letter looks like.

The Lights on the Tree

This is a Christmas Rip of the The Wheel on the Bus

The lights on the tree go blink, blink, blink
Blink, blink, blink
Blink, blink, blink
The lights on the tree go blink, blink, blink
All Christmas day.

Other Verses

The star on the tree goes twinkle, twinkle, twinkle…

The bells on the tree go ding, dong, ding …

The birds on the tree go tweet, tweet, tweet…

The tinsel on the tree goes sparkle, sparkle, sparkle

The presents under the tree go rattle, rattle, rattle…

The tinsel is made from glittery pipe cleaners.

Ten Red Apples – Adding and Subtracting

Ten Red Apples Felt Board Magic

Ten Red Apples—Adding and  Subtracting

The apples subtract from the tree and add up on the ground

So many opportunities to discuss counting up and counting down. Using felt apples to show increases and decreases provides an opportunity to learn using concrete visual materials.

Ten red apples hanging in a tree

The juiciest apples you ever did see

The wind came by with an angry frown,

(make wind blowing sound)

And one red apple came tumbling down.

(tumble one apple to the ground)

Now one red apple is on the ground!

Nine red apples hanging in a tree

The juiciest apples you ever did see

The wind came by with an angry frown,

(make wind blowing sound)

And one red apple came tumbling down.

(tumble one apple to the ground)

Now two red apples are on the ground!

Eight red apples  hanging in a tree…

Seven red apples  hanging in a tree…

Etc…

One  red apple hanging in a tree

The juiciest apples you ever did see

The wind came by with an angry frown,

(make wind blowing sound)

And the  last red apple came tumbling down.

(tumble one apple to the ground)

Now ten red apples are on the ground!

Ten Apples Up on Top

Ten Apples Up on Top Felt Board Magic

I use this felt set to retell Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr Seuss

First I put the dog, the lion and the tiger on the felt board.

Then I read the first page of the book and demonstrate how to use the apples to follow the story.

 The children quickly take over adding apples as each page is read.

This set enables lots of discussion about counting and lots of co-operation.
