Flannel Friday: One, two, three BLOW!

"One, two, three, BLOW!" is a simple rhyme from Wriggle and Roar: Rhymes to Join in With by Nick Sharratt and Julia Donaldson. The first verse goes like this:

Three red candles
In a row.
One, two, three, 
There are three more verses:

The biscuits (or cookies) are up too high ("One, two, three, SIGH!").

Tigers are on the prowl ("One, two, three, GROWL!") 

And monsters appear in a dream ("One, two, three, SCREAM!") 

I think of this rhyme as the next step up from something like Let's Make a Noise. It invites everyone to participate by asking them to count and to make a specific sound, and provided you can come up with more rhyming words, you can adapt it however you like. I obviously have not posted the full text here because it is copyrighted, but if you can't find the book, feel free to email me, and I will be happy to share.

Flannel Friday is a weekly round-up of ideas for using flannel boards and other props at story time. This week's host is Anne.
