Flannel Friday-Two Little Bluebirds

This is one of my favorite rhymes to use with my Tot Time group (12-24 months).  When I saw that Mollie had created a flannelboard to go with it, I stole (um, borrowed) her pattern and made my own.

Two little bluebirds sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away Jack. Fly away Jill.
Come back Jack. Come back Jill.

Recently I have been working on circulating early literacy kits.  One of the themes is nursery rhymes and I REALLY wanted to include this rhyme.  To make it more fun, I expanded it a bit.

Two little purple birds

Two little yellow birds

Two little pink birds

Because these were circulating, I used puffy paint rather than googly eyes so I didn't create a choking hazard.  I included a rhyme card with each set (content by me and design by our Community Relations person).  In addition to the rhyme, I give suggestions to parents as to how to play with the rhyme.  For example, instead of using Jack and Jill, use Brad and Bill.

This week's hosts are Lindsey and Dana over at Jbrary!  Stop of by for some great ideas.  As always, for all Flannel Friday information stop by the official blog.
