Happy Flannel Friday!
I tried this one last week, and the kids loved it. Three Eggs in A Basket is another brilliant story from Judy Sierra’s Mother Goose’s Playhouse.
It begins with 3 eggs in a basket
we discuss the various eggs. One looks just like the eggs you buy at the grocery store. The second egg is very large. And the third egg is perfectly round and a wee bit soft. Suddenly, the first egg begins to wiggle. And with a crick crack, out pops a baby chick. Then the large egg begins to wiggle. And with a crick crack, out pops a baby duck. Then the round, soft egg begins to wiggle. And with a crick, crack, out pops a baby turtle. (BTW: when I paused after “out pops,” I got some pretty awesome ad libs…e.g. a banana, a present, COOKIES!!! you get the idea…)
Finally, the mamas come looking for their hatchlings, and the babies jump up on their backs for a piggy ride! (this last detail got a lot of cheers from the kids, and thanks-a-lots from the moms. oh well.
