(Not a) Flannel Friday: Rudolph, Rudolph

This little Rudolph lives in my story room closet most of the year, just hanging out. I actually forgot about him and didn't use him for my baby/toddler story time yesterday morning, but then found him - and a set of colored noses made out of felt that I made last year and never used - and decided to incorporate him into my afternoon story time instead. This rhyme wound up being too basic for my mostly-kindergarten audience, but it would have been great with threes and fours. (Also, as Anne pointed out last week, it makes an excellent flannel board!)

Rudolph! Rudolph!
What will you do?
You can't guide Santa
If your nose is blue!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
Santa gave a wink.
But what will he think
If your nose is pink?

Rudolph! Rudolph!
Your way cannot be seen
Through the wintry weather
If your nose is green!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
You're such a silly fellow
Who will know it's you
If your nose is yellow!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
It's time to fly at night.
But you're quite a sight
'Cause your nose is white

Rudolph! Rudolph!
The children are in bed.
And now I know you're ready
because your nose is red!

This rhyme, which I adapted slightly to suit the felt colors I had on hand, originally came to me from this page on the Orange County Public Schools website.
