Read the poem, “Five Little Flowers” (Author Unknown)
Five little flowers growing in a row,
The first one said, “I’m purple you know.”
The second one said, ‘I’m pink as can be.”
The third one said, “I’m blue like the sea.”
The fourth one said, “I’m a very red fellow.”
The fifth one said, “My colour is yellow.”
Then out came the sun, big and bright
And five little flowers smiled in delight.
