5 Little Nails - Tube Story

I was inspired by the blog Mel's Desk when I saw the post Not a Flannel Friday: 5 Little Nails.  I created my own Tube Story which I used in my construction preschool storytime.  I really liked the look of the faux wood grain background you can add in Publisher so I made a wood pattern for the paper both the tube and the tabs with the nails.  

Five Little Nails
Five little nails, standing straight and steady.
Here I come with my hammer ready!
Bam Bam Bam! That nail goes down.
Now there’s just four nails to pound.

I like to use plastic coffee cans as drums in storytime.  We did a few songs on the drums before I introduced the rhyme.  Then as I said the line  "Bam Bam Bam! That nail goes down," I had the children hammer on their drums.  

Just repeat the lines until all the nails are gone and you have a very interactive counting rhyme.
