Flannelboard: Chickens

If I come up with more rhymes and songs to go with this set, the post will be updated to reflect that. If you have ideas for other ways to use the set, please share!


This flannelboard is super cute and fun! I really love ones that have double sided pieces, it's almost like magic when you change them. I used this one for my chicken and bird storytimes. I had the kids help me count the eggs after I put each clutch on the board, so we counted to five twice and then to ten. I also made sure to count the chicks at the end of the rhyme since you don't want to count your chickens before they hatch!

Songs, Rhymes, Games, and Fingerplays

“Ten Fluffy Chickens”
Five eggs and five eggs
(Add a clutch of eggs each time you say “five eggs”)
And that makes ten
Sitting on top
(Add the hen)
Is Mother Hen
Cackle cackle cackle
(Clap hands as you say Cackle!)
What do I see?
Ten fluffy chicks
(Flip over each clutch of eggs.)
Yellow as can be.
