8.) Book Four: Little Pea

9.) Jelly Bean Stew Flannel

Such a Simple Exercise-Jbrary

This is such a simple exercise and it’s going to make us strong! X2

Raise your right arm high and count 1-2-3, put your right arm down and count 1-2-3

Different Verses: 

Left Arm, Left Leg, and Right Leg




I used all of my candy flannels to get to 20 for the kids to see visually how many candies 20 looked like.


Song with Instruments. I changed this up and had all of the kids have maracas while we sang this song and they changed the speed of shaking their instruments to what motion we were singing about.

Walking, Walking- Jbrary

Walking, walking,  x2

Hop, Hop, Hop x2

Running, Running, Running x2

Jelly Bean Stew Flannel

Jelly Bean Stew, Jelly Bean Stew. Red and Yellow and purple ones too! Orange and pink and black and green.  It’s the prettiest stew I’ve ever seen!

I used this image and printed out two copies of it.  Then I made it into a flannel board.  This was super cute, and the kids loved it.  They helped me put all of the jelly beans onto the board and then we all pretended to be stirring out stew as we said the rhyme.


Song-Roly Poly

5 Little Gummy Bears


I used five of these cuties for this rhyme:

5 little gummy bears wish we had more. We’ll eat the red one, now there are four.

4 little gummy bears, tasty as can be.  We’ll eat the blue one.  Now there are 3.

3 little gummy bears, only a few left.  We’ll eat the yellow one.  Now there are 2.

2 little gummy bears, eating them is fun! We’ll eat the green one, now there is 1.

1 little gummy bear, the last one we see.  We will ea the orange one, We’re happy as c can be!
