Flannel Friday: Five Little Boats

And now for a recently re-done flannelboard: Five Little Boats!

This was the only flannelboard I accidentally lost in the move between my libraries. I know that it’s *somewhere*, but to be honest — it wasn’t a super great flannelboard. It was done quickly before a storytime and instead of finding it, I thought I just re-make it using this Pinterest pin as inspiration/template.

I forgot, however, the original rhyme which really doesn’t work for having two sailboats and no rowboats:

“Five Little Boats”
The first little boat went chug, chug, chug.
The second little boat went tug, tug, tug.
The third little boat went row, row, row.
The fourth little boat went ohhhh sooooo slooooooow.
Here comes the sailboat, watch it go!

So I found this rhyme “Five Little Sailboats” on Felt Board Ideas and modified it to work with my boats:

“Five Little Boats” (Tune: Five Little Ducks)
Five little boats went out one day
Over the waves and far away
With the wind, they begin to rock
One little boat returns to the dock


Sue is hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!
