Flannelboard Flashback: CSLP 2010

Since I recently re-did my Flannelboards page, I noticed that I never blogged about a few of my flannels. These four flannels were made in the Summer of 2010 to go with the theme “Make a Splash!”

“Five Big Whales”
Five big whales in the sea offshore // One swam up to spout and that left four.
Four big whales in the deep blue sea // One swam up to spout and that left three.
Three big whales in the sea so blue // One swam up to spout and that left two.
Two big whales having loads of fun // One swam up to spout and that left one.
One big whale longing for the sun // He swam up to spout, and that left none!

I got the whale image from Google, and the rhyme came from an Ocean Life Email Compilation which is no longer hosted on OCLC’s website.


“Five Cranky Crabs”
Five cranky crabs were digging on the shore.
One swam into a net and then there were four.
Four cranky crab were floating in the sea.
One got tangled up in seaweed, then there were three.
Three cranky crabs were wondering what to do.
One dug a deep, deep hole. Then there were two.
Two cranky crabs were warming in the sun.
One got scooped up in a cup. Then there was one.
One cranky crab was smarter than his friends.
He hid between the jagged rocks. That’s how the story ends!

The template for Cranky Crab came from Carroll Public Library’s Beach Fingerplays and the rhyme came from Preschool Education.


“Five Little Fishes”
Five little fish swimming by the shore; one got caught then there were four
Four little fish swimming in the sea; one got caught then there were three
Three little fish swimming in the blue; one got caught then there were two
Two little fish swimming in the sun; one got caught then there was one
One little fish swimming straight for home decided it was best to never roam

This flannel was another Google Image template and the rhyme was found at Addison Public Library.


“Five Little Ocean Friends”
Five little ocean friends on the ocean floor,
The starfish walks away and now there are four
Four little ocean friends living in the sea
The crab slides away now there are three
Three little ocean friends looking for a clue
“Glub, glub,” said the lobster now there are two
Two little ocean friends not having much fun
Off swam the sea horse now there is one
One little octopus sad and all alone
Back swims the starfish, back swims the crab,
Back swims the lobster, back swims the sea horse
And they played in the sea foam, safe in their home.

The template and rhyme for Five Little Ocean Friends came from Carroll Public Library’s Beach Fingerplays.
