I made this particular felt set for a previous, Letter T themed storytime crate. I located a simple template online, traced everything out, and then used hot glue to assemble the pieces.
I used Storytime Katie’s Five Little Turtles felt board rhyme:
Math Minute Felt Rhyme: Five Little Turtles
One little turtle, feeling mighty fine
Sitting by the pond in the bright sunshine
Here’s another turtle that wants to play.
Now 2 happy turtles have a fun day.
2 happy turtles, feeling mighty fine
Swimming in the pond in the bright sunshine.
Here’s another turtle ready to play.
Now 3 happy turtles have a wet day.
3 slow turtles feeling mighty fine!
Blinking their eyes in the bright sunshine.
Here’s another turtle that’s come to play
Now 4 happy turtles have a bright day.
4 green turtles feeling mighty fine,
Resting by the pond in the bright sunshine.
Here’s another turtle ready to play
Now 5 green turtles have a great day.
5 tired turtles feeling might fine
Taking a nap in the bright sunshine.
They had fun together with their turtle play
Now 5 tired turtles slowly walk away.
(count down as you remove each turtle until they’re all off and then wave “goodbye”)
5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Goodbye turtles!
