Five Ice Cream Cones

Five Ice Cream Cones                                                             (flannelboard)

Five ice cream cones, in the ice cream store,
A boy bought a chocolate one, and then there were four.
Four ice cream cones, as delicious as can be,
A girl bought a vanilla one, and then there were three.
Three ice cream cones, none the color blue,
A boy bought a peppermint one, and then there were two.
Two ice cream cones, dripping in the sun,
A girl bought a strawberry one, and then there was one.
One ice cream cone, in a sugar cone,
A boy bought this last one, and now there are none.
