Hungry? How about a hamburger and some jellybeans? These rhymes would work well in a food storytime or a color storytime.
First course: a hamburger. This is obviously a takeoff of the Bill Martin book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Substitute in the parts of a burger and you have dinner.
Brown bun, brown bun, what do you see?/I see a green pickle looking at me.
Continue with red tomato, yellow cheese, and brown patty.
Then: brown patty, brown patty, what do you see?/I see a hungry child looking at me.
Hungry child, hungry child, what do you see?/I see a hamburger looking at me.
Yummy, yummy, let’s eat!
I borrowed this flannelboard from my library’s flannelboard collection, so I don’t have a source for the pieces. Clipart or coloring sheets would provide great patterns.
Now, dessert. Jellybeans! I found this one in my library’s collection, as well. The flannel pieces are amazingly simple, just large jellybean shapes. I would love to decorate them with some glitter or puffy paint, but I will refrain. 🙂 I do, however, love the rhyme.
5 little jellybeans, I wish I had more!/I’ll eat the green one, now there are 4.
4 little jellybeans, tasty as can be/I’ll eat the purple one, now there are 3.
3 little jellybeans, only a few/I’ll eat the blue one, now there are 2.
2 little jellybeans, eating them is fun/I’ll eat the orange one, now there is one.
1 little jellybean, the last one for me/I’ll eat this yellow one, I’m happy as can be.
Mmmmm, not the healthiest dinner but a tasty one!
