Flannel Friday: Winter Post #2: Snowflakes

Last week, I shared my penguin flannel board ideas. This week I'm talking about snowflakes!

All of my snowflakes came from, with maybe one exception. I tried to abide by that whole "no two snowflakes are alike" philosophy and printed five different ones.

I had some trouble finding a rhyme or song I really liked, so I've been trying to come up with something of my own. This is what I ended up with:

Five little snowflakes falling all together.
Five little snowflakes making wintry weather.
One little snowflake went astray,
fell to the ground, and melted away.
(Repeat, counting down to zero)

I don't love it like some of my others, but it's something I'd feel comfortable using. If I do use it, I will drop the snowflakes to the floor at the end of each verse - my groups love watching anything that falls.

Another rhyme that might work is this version of Five Little Snowflakes, which I found here.

Five little snowflakes
Dancing here and there.
Then one little snowflake
blew away in the air!

(Count down to zero.)

Zero little snowflakes
Not one to be found.
Cause five little snowflakes
have fallen to the ground!

Finally, with my baby lap time groups, I'll also be using popsicle stick puppets and a couple of snowflakes to do this song, which I found at Mel's Desk

Dance like snowflakes,
Dance like snowflakes,
In the air, in the air,
Swirling, whirling snowflakes,
Swirling, whirling snowflakes,
Everywhere, everywhere.
