We did this fun little counting/color recognition flannel in conjunction with reading The Thingamabob by Il Sung Na (which may just be my new favorite weather picture book ever!) Here’s how it goes:
5 Umbrellas By the Back Door
5 umbrellas stood by the back door.
The red one went outside (say BYE! and wave) and then there were 4.
4 umbrellas pretty as can be.
The blue one went outside and then there were 3.
3 umbrellas with nothing to do.
The green one went outside and then there were 2.
2 umbrellas not having much fun.
The yellow one went outside and there was 1.
1 umbrella sad and all alone (sniffle and pretend to rub eyes).
He went to join his friends and that left none!
