Five Little Oysters, the title song on my latest CD release, features one of my favorite songs for stimulating learning play with children ages 2-5. The song features counting/ adding and subtracting, rhythmic listening, rolling movement for hands and whole body, and active storytelling.
While you sing, you can create your very own felt storyboard to use at home or in the classroom. Purchase a 9×12 inch adhesive foam board(s), adhere a 9×12 inch background color felt on each board, and then cut felt oysters, sand and waves from colorful pieces of felt. You can sing, count, add and subtract the oysters, put the oysters on and off the board, and manipulate the felt play in any way you wish!
When you’re finished with the song/play and boards, simply store the small pieces in zip lock bags, and place the boards in a safe place for next time!
