Flannel Friday! Who Ate All the Cookie Dough?

13 May

Who  Ate All the Cookie Dough, by Karen Beaumont, is a wonderful rhyming story with a great refrain that kids can learn quickly and help out with. I turned her story into a flannelboard, and changed one of the animals (except, obviously, the kangaroo and monkey) to fit the patterns I had.  This would be great for an animals, cookies, kangaroos, or rhyming storytime

First, we start with Kanga, wearing a lovely apron (that hides a secret!):

She loves cookies!

Kanga discovers that someone has eaten all the cookie dough! One by one, she asks the other animals, beginning with Zebra (my kids like to help out with this part):

“Zebra, zebra, do you know,

Who ate all the cookie dough?”

That orange thing is the cookie dough bowl, natch.

Zebra (and each of the animals) answers:

“I don’t know, it wasn’t me, maybe hippo? Let’s go see.”

And they continue asking the other animals, ending with monkey, who says, “Monkey see, monkey do. It wasn’t me, tee hee hee!”

Deny, deny, deny!

Finally, the animals figure out the culprit: under Kanga’s apron, hiding the evidence, is…:

Sneaky little Joey!

He can also come out to face his punishment:

Kangaroo pattern (complete with pouch and removable joey) is here, and lion pattern here. I made up the apron out of my own brain, and the rest of the animals came from a photocopyable pattern book we have here in the library.

Stay tuned to this blog for a Flannel Friday roundup later today!

    […] Definitely our favorite book!  Before we read this story, I pulled out my kangaroo puppet friend with a joey in her pocket and activated some background knowledge.  This story makes an even more fun flannel set- check out the wonderful Miss Mary’s version here! […]
