This week’s contribution is from my former colleague Karen at ICPL. She held a fun carrot storytime this summer and, as well as reading Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds, she made these awesome carrots and accompanying counting rhyme.
Five Creepy Carrots
Five creepy carrots
behind the bedroom door, I whipped around to look
and now there are four.
Four creepy carrots
Creeping close behind me,
Creeping carrots creeping,
Creeping carrots three!
Three creepy carrots! What am I to do?!
Creeping carrots creeping
Whoa! Only two!
Two creeping carrots hiding under my bed,
“Just a bad dream, son,”
was what my dad said.
One creepy carrot, is this bad dream done?
I rolled over in my bed and then there were none.
Here is her template for the carrot bodies.
