Five Little Snowmen

Jonah has been enjoying counting things, so I made a couple of counting boards to go along with the following poems. For the snowflakes, I printed out large snowflakes that I got from my clipart library, and cut them out. I laminated each flake with clear contact paper, and glued magnet strips to the backs. For the snowmen, I used sturdy cardstock to make snowmen, then glued the magnetic strips to the back. During our activity time, I used a cookie sheet to count the snowmen and snowflakes along with the poems. I let him manipulate and count the items on the cookie sheet when we aren't saying the poems as well. If you don't have the time to make a magnet counting board, you can simply use your fingers to represent the snowflakes and snowmen!

Five Little Snowflakes
One little snowflake with nothing to do.
Along came another and
Then there were two.

Two little snowflakes playing  in a tree.
Along came another, and
Then there were three.

Three little snowflakes looking for some more.
Along came another, and
Then there were four.

Four little snowflakes that finally did arrive.
Along came another, and
Then there were five.

Five little snowflakes having so much fun.
Out came the sun, and
Then there were none!



Five Little Snowmen
Five little snowmen standing round my door.
This one melted and then there were four.
Four little snowmen beneath a green pine tree.
This one melted and then there were three.
Three little snowmen with caps and mittens blue.
This one melted and then there were two.
Two little snowmen standing in the sun.
This one melted and then there was one.
One little snowman started to run.
But he melted away and then there was none.
