Flannelboard: Seven Continents

Action Rhymes: “Number Poems”
Number 1 is like a stick
A straight line down, that’s very quick!
For number 2 go right around
Then make a line across the ground!
Go right around, what will it be?
Go round again to make a 3!
Down and over and down some more
That’s the way to make a 4!
Go down and around, then you stop
Finish the 5 with a line on top!
Make a curve, then a loop
There are no tricks to making a 6!
Across the sky and down from heaven
That’s the way to make a 7!

Song: “Seven!” (Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)
S-e-v-e-n spells seven.
S-e-v-e-n spells seven.
Seven airplanes in the sky,
Seven boats are floating by.
Let’s all shout “Hip, Hip, Hooray!”
For number seven.
S-e-v-e-n spells seven.
S-e-v-e-n spells seven.
Seven cars race on the track,
Seven trucks with heavy stacks.
Let’s all shout “Hip, Hip, Hooray!”
For number seven.

How It Went

We had a great time in storytime this week — I thought that number seven was going to be a tricky number to find books for, but it actually turned out to be much easier, thankfully. The kids absolutely loved “Seven Blind Mice” and guessing what it was that the mice were looking at. After I read that book, I talked to them about where in the world the story had come from. That’s when I pulled out my flannelboard pieces of the continents, pieces soon to come for a Flannel Friday post!
