Tune: BINGO
There was a rabbit that I once knew
And Bunny was her name-o.
B-U-N-N-Y

What’s the Weather Felt Board Set

What's the Weather Felt Board Magic

I created a large felt set to use when talking about the weather. The pieces in this set are large – the sun is over 12cm across – the clouds are 17cm across.

Here is a song  about the weather to use with the felt set.

Tune: Oh My Darling Clementine

What’s the weather?
What’s the weather?
What’s the weather like today?
Is it windy?
Is it cloudy?
Is there rain?
Or is there sun ?

What’s the weather?
What’s the weather?
What’s the weather like today?
Is it stormy?
Is it snowing?
Is it hot?
Or is it cold?

What’s the weather?
What’s the weather?
What’s the weather like today?
Is there lightning?
Is i there thunder?
Is there snow?
Or a Rainbow?

Here are some closeups of the individual pieces

Five Cheeky Monkeys Swinging in a Tree

Five Cheeky Monkeys Felt Board Magic

 Five cheeky monkeys swinging in a tree
 Teasing Mister Crocodile:
“You can’t catch me, You can’t catch me.”
Along comes Mister Crocodile,
Quiet as can be, And SNAPPED that monkey
Right out of that tree!

This is a tried and true favourite song  set amongst the preschool group. 

Five Cheeky Monkeys Five Cheeky Monkeys

I’ve made this felt set a few time now, in lots of different colours.

The crocodile has changed over time. This is the original design that I made three years ago. Now he has a second dark layer of spines/ spikes along the back.
