I am so happy to be sitting on the couch in front of the hockey game putting links together for Flannel Friday. What a great way to start the weekend!
Nikki at Hey There Library has a SUPER version of Fall Is Not Easy. True Confession: I have read this dozens of times and it still makes me laugh out loud. If you haven’t added this flannelboard to your repertoire yet, WHAT are you waiting for?!
Today Miss Jaime’s Library Journeys includes a trip to another Flannel Friday post for inspiration! Jaime created her own version of Dotty the Dinosaur and includes a description of her narrated version as well as a full rhyme if you like to recite instead. Lots of great opportunities for predicting and discussing with this set!
Lisa’s contribution at Thrive After Three is another great addition to her Felt Board Table sets: this time it’s a Fairy Tale table! We have vertical felt boards at some of our libraries but I love how the horizontal table surface helps kids keep the felt pieces where they want them!
Didn’t get enough princesses and knights with Lisa’s post? Check out Shawn’s Royal Flannel Board Stories at Read Rhyme Sing! She shares both a Five Little Knights rhyme (and how they encounter a dragon puppet) and a short story called The King’s Cookie.
There was something in the air this week–since Kathryn ALSO had a royalty theme at Fun with Friends at Storytime! She added to her stash of “crown and jewel” posts with one inspired by LibrErin. Folks, if you need a Fairy Tale storytime you are practically all set with these three!
Thank you Lisa for hosting a guest Flannel Friday poster at Libraryland! Just look at how Nancy transformed a clock on the children’s room wall to a Hickory Dickory Dock tribute! Now I am want to think how we can celebrate other nursery rhymes like this. Thank you, Nancy, for joining us this week!
Anne at So Tomorrow uses bear puppets to adapt a flannelboard idea for the rhyme All Types of Bears. I love how she changed the rhyme, the media, AND the tune and made this her own!
Do you still need a monsters idea for Halloween? Carol shares an entire monsters storytime with a flannel song It’s Monsters Day AND a glove puppet version of Five Little Monsters Jumping on the Bed. Lots of stuff here, make sure you see the whole post at Program Palooza!
Storytime Katie is totally on a roll with her finger puppets, and this week is no exception. She has both fruit and veggie sets up, with links to possible song & rhyme ideas. brb going to squee over their adorableness some more.
And I got a start with a new set, Under the Sea (Part One)!
