Three Cats

Prepare cutouts for your flannelboard. Three white cats, three blue hats, three purple mats, three orange bows, and three pink triangle noses. Read the following poem to your children and place the figures on the flannelboard as they are mentioned.

Three Cats

Once there were three white cats –
One cat, two, cats, three cats.
And those cats wore three blue hats –
One hat, two hats, three hats.
And they sat on three purple mats –
One mat, two mats, three mats.
All three cats wore orange bows
One bow, two bows, three bows.
And each one had a soft pink nose –
One nose, two noses, three noses.

These Three

Call three of your children to the front of the circle. Talk about characteristics that the three children share. (For instance: All have brown hair. All are girls.) Then sing the following song, and have a volunteer answer the question. Repeat choosing three different children each time, until every child has had a turn to stand before the group and an opportunity to answer.

These Children Are the Same - sung to “The Farmer in the Dell”

Three children are the same.
Three children are the same.
Can anybody tell us how
Three children are the same?
