The Ants Go Marching song included on my latest Five Little Oysters CD release is one of my favorite traditional melodies. This song features counting from one to five, while marching, storytelling, and keeping time with the music.
You can create your very own felt storyboard to use at home or in the classroom while you sing and march with the song. Purchase a 9×12 inch adhesive foam board(s), adhere a 9×12 inch background color felt on the board, and then cut the felt ants and other shapes from the story/song out of additional colorful pieces of felt. You can sing, count, and add the ants on and off the board in any way you wish as you sing along.
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!
