FLANNELBOARD:

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them.
Leave them alone
And they’ll come home
Wagging their tails behind them.

Baa baa black sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir
Three bags full.
One for the master.
One for the dame.
One for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Place the bags next to each person in the rhyme as you name them.
