Flannel Friday: Rainbow Poem

I was having trouble finding a flannel board poem that I liked for an upcoming story time about colors, so I wrote my own. That's right. I wrote it. It's not the best, the cadence is still a little off, but as someone who has long been in awe of the librarianswho write their own material I'm pretty pleased with myself.

Rainbow Poem

Red is the color of this balloon,
of firetrucks, apples and the roses in June

Orange is an orange with which nothing rhymes
But if you take a bite, it'll be divine

Yellow comes next, it's found in the sun
In buttercups and night lights when the day is done

Green is the color of the grass in the spring
4 leaf clovers,and a big emerald ring

Blue is for water-- that's oceans, lakes and rivers
It's also the color for cold when you shiver

Purple is for royalty like kings, queens and princes
And for grapes in a bowl, mmmmm mmmmm delicious!

These are the colors found high and found low
Put them together and you've got a rainbow.
