I am so happy to be hosting a Flannel Friday Round Up again! You’d think that it would be mathematically impossible to have so many strong entries week after week. I was just talking with friends from another library who both said they have a file an inch thick of ideas from Flannel Friday for their volunteers to make! Keep up the good work, you guys are amazing.
Here’s this week’s ideas!
Kelly brings us gorgeous colors and beautiful designs in her sleepy dreamy Little Sandman lullaby, at Welcome to Storytime.
At Future Librarian Superhero, Anna has a great way to boost print awareness in both English and Spanish with her song cards for the song La Granja.
Katie adapts the classic “Little Mouse” flannel to a clipart “Little Cat” (who hides behind hats, of course) at Storytime Katie.
Courtney at Miss Courtney Meets Bobo shares two rhymes from her Mother Goose on the Loose program! I love her interactive version of “One Two Buckle My Shoe.”
Mary knows you can never have enough Pete the Cat! On Miss Mary Liberry she has put together a great “lift the flap” flannelboard for the new book “Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons.”
There’s team effort at Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime! Seth wrote the rhyme and Nicole made the googly-eyed owls for “Five Little Owls.” There’s two endings to the rhyme; go see which one YOU like best!
Seth has his own entry at The Voices Inside My Headphones, where he shows an inventive magic file folder activity to go along with the book “Wild Boars Cook.” I admire the dedication necessary to make 26 laminated bananas.
Linda couldn’t find a flower folktale that she liked, so she just went ahead and wrote her own! Check out the story and see the clip art she put together for her original tale, “Kip’s Flowers,” at Notes from the Story Room.
In the Children’s Room Lucy shares her train cars and rhyme inspired by Flannel Friday! She wrote “This Little Train” to the tune of “This Old Man.”
Kay is working on an interactive reversible version of the great Mrs Wishy Washy! It looks great already; check out her post on Storytime ABC’s.
Not one, not two, but three ideas at Storytime Sparks today! Sandra is sharing props from the dollar store, a clip art flannelboard, her own counting rhyme, AND a fabulous repurposed craft from Hobby Lobby, so head on over and see what it is!
Lisa shares a simple but powerful Shape Song over at Libraryland! She has a great way of using colors to help the kids who don’t know all their shapes yet be successful at this activity.
If you’re participating in the summer reading theme Dream Big, Andrea has a smart idea at Roving Fiddlehead Kidlit! She made a nighttime “backdrop” for her flannelboard so she will be all ready to go for the summer.
Katie shares a flannel and a song with some bilingual sharks chomping in both English and Spanish! Check out Los tiburones en el mar and even more bilingual ideas over at ¡Es divertido hablar dos idiomas!
And I have a new idea I’m working out for a storytime activity that will help build fine motor skills…a ribbon pull prop that goes along with a flannel story, “Three Mice Tails.”
There’s still time to have your post included! I will add links again between 8 and 9 Mountain Time!
Thanks everyone for another amazing round up!
