I’m taking it easy this week and posting what is just a minor adaptation of the Red White and Blue flannel I described for the Fourth of July!
Just put your shapes on the board one by one and name them as you go: “This bird is black…this cat is black…this bat is black…”
“This bone is black…OOOPS! No it’s not! This bone is white!”
“Let’s start a new row. This bone is white… [etc] …This leaf is white…OOOPS! No, it’s not! This leaf is orange!”
“Let’s start a new row. This leaf is orange … [etc] … Look at all these Halloween colors! I have one more shape, and it’s black, white, and orange. We carve it out of a pumpkin and light it on Halloween. What is it?”
“That’s right! A Jack-o-lantern!”
Also, in the Red White and Blue post I mentioned that I had adapted it from a St Patrick’s Day flannelboard I found in our files at work. Anne wanted to see the pics for that one (Hi Anne!) so here it is, too. It’s a little different from the other ones, since you’re only working with one main color (green) instead of three. So when you put the last shape up on the row (That sun isn’t green! That sun is YELLOW!) you don’t have to move it down to the next row; just leave it at the end, like this:
There you go! Have a great week!
