Flannel Rhyme Build a Skeleton
skeleton
With the older kids, the kids had to tell me how to build the skeleton. I would make them be very specific. For example, if they said the hand went on top, I put the hand on top of the head. They had to tell me the hand went at the end of the arm.

Action Rhyme Skin and Bones
There was an old woman all skin and bones, O-o-o-o!
She lived down by the old graveyard O-o-o-o!
One night she thought she’d take a walk, O-o-o-o!
She walked down by the graveyard, O-o-o-o!
She saw the bones a laying around, O-o-o-o!
She thought she would seep the old church house, O-o-o-o!
She went to the closet to get a broom, O-o-o-o!
She opened the door and Boo!
