I was looking for a good flannelboard to help me clean up my scrap piles this past fall and stumbled on this little gem that Dorothy wrote, inspired by Nicole!
Five Little Starfish
Five little starfish by the shore,
The yellow one got lost and that left four
Four little starfish in the sea,
The blue one swam far, far away and that left three.
Three little starfish in the ocean so blue,
The red one took a seahorse ride and that left two.
Two little starfish in the sun,
The orange one took a dive and that left one.
One little starfish swimming along,
It was time for him to go home and that left none.

I haven’t had a chance to use it yet, but I know the opportunity will eventually present itself now that I’m at a new library! I’m going to modify the colors since I was just trying to use scraps and I never have red scraps for some reason.
