I posted an Inspired By flannel waaaaay back in November of 2011 called Five Birthday Candles. The post was inspired by Storytime Katie. I used the flannel today in storytime, but was in a rush and didn't have time to memorize Jane Cobb's rhyme again. I made up a super simple, yet interactive, chant to go along with it:
Five Birthday Candles
Five birthday candles on a birthday cake
Let's blow one out...
Now there are four birthday candles on a birthday cake...
