Baby’s Bath with flannel board

This rhyme, I’ll do with the flannel board. First I’ll say the rhyme, and put up the figures. Then we’ll all say the rhyme together.
Baby’s ready for a bath.
Here’s the baby’s tub.
Here’s the baby’s washcloth.
Rub a dub a dub.
Here’s the baby’s cake of soap,
And here’s the towel to dry,
And here’s the baby’s cradle,
Rock-a-baby-bye.

Early Literacy Aside–Example: As we say rhymes with our young children they hear both the rhythm of language and the rhymes. Being exposed to rhymes helps them hear the smaller sounds in words, a first step in later learning to read.
