Flannel Friday: My Lunch Box

This is another fun guessing game that you could do with a lunch box and food props or with this flannel set!  It goes great with a box or food/lunch storytime theme.

I got the idea from an awesome old book/CD set from Creative Teaching Press: Fall Phonemic Awareness.  Unfortunately it’s no longer in print.  I’ve included the original song version.  The second is my own spin on the lyrics.

My Lunch Box (Version 1)

To the tune of “Yankee Doodle”

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It starts with sand- and ends with -witch
A sandwich- now I’ll eat it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which drink is my favorite?
It starts with mmm- and ends with -ilk
My milk- now I’ll drink it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It starts with ch- and ends with –ips
Some chips- now I’ll eat them!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It starts with cook-and ends with –ees
Some cookies- now I’ll eat them!

My Lunch Box (Version 2)

To the tune of “Yankee Doodle”

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It’s made of bread and a peanut butter jelly spread…
A sandwich- now I’ll eat it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It’s yellow and long and eventually turns brown
A banana- now I’ll eat it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
They’re yellow and crunchy and oh so salty…
My chips- now I’ll eat them!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which drink is my favorite?
It’s white and smooth and good for you…
My milk- now I’ll drink it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It’s round and brown and the last thing to go down…
A cookie- now I’ll eat it!

Flannel Friday: Veggie Riddles

Happy Flannel Friday!  Many thanks to Anne at So Tomorrow for hosting this week.

It’s January and you know what that means… SOUP MONTH!  I had so much fun planning and delivering a soup-er themed storytime for our team this month.  I made a vegetable riddle flannel for our Preschool/Family crowd.  This flannel goes along great with Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Ehlert!

Vegetable Riddles

I’m red and round,

I also have seeds.

Sliced up in salads,

Is where you’ll see me!

(tomato)

I’m a root vegetable,

I can be red, white or green.

I can make you cry

When you cut into me!

(onion)

I grow underground,

But I have skin and eyes.

I can be roasted or mashed,

Or made into fries!

(potato)

Rabbits like to eat me

When I grow in a field.

I’m an orange vegetable.

I taste best when I’m peeled!

(carrot)

I’m yellow and yummy,

I grow on a stalk.

You can eat me on the cob,

Or cook me in a pot!

(corn)
