Every time I host Flannel Friday I’m so grateful to be a part of this amazing group of people! Thanks for reading, posting, sharing, and helping us make our storytimes better every week.
Emily at Literacy Hoots shares a couple of math-based activities starting from the book Polar Bear’s Underwear. I love all the opportunities for conversations and thinking out loud! (Plus, underwear.)
Jaime shares five adorable squirrels and her pattern source at Miss Jaime’s Library Journeys. She adapts “One Elephant Went Out to Play,” and you know I am a big fan of that one!
Long-time Flannel Fridayer Andrea at Roving Fiddlehead Kidlit is back with a super fun light-up firefly folder story that uses paper circuits…and real lights! EXTREMELY cool!
Jane at Piper Loves the Library shares a collage craft using recycled books! She did this as a pop-up art program but it would be an easy end-of-storytime craft as well. Or you could cut up illustrations from old books, put felt or velcro on the back of the images, and make a collage together on the flannelboard in the middle of storytime!
From Rachel’s Reading Room, Rachel and her coworker blew me away with this fun interactive board–they send five brave firefighters one by one down the firepole to the trucks! Wow!
It’s not too late in the summer to sneak in a camping storytime! Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime shares a camping song and a campfire set that is making me hungry for s’mores. (PS: Kathryn is currently serving as our Round Up Pinner–she’s the one who sorts all the posts every week onto our Pinterest boards. Round of applause for Kathryn for this great service!)
And I have a Five Books flannelboard activity that I’m pairing with puppets…trying this for the first time tomorrow so we’ll see how it goes!
Last but never least…Superhero Storytime Katie has her own section of the round up today–She’s been posting every week on her blog but not catching the roundups, so we’re getting caught up with her. Go check out these great ideas:
Five Little Boats
Maisy Drives the Bus
Green Says Go
The Shape Story
Thanks for joining another great week of Flannel Friday! After this goes live I’m updating the Host Schedule and the Past Round Up links tonight on the website, so by tomorrow everything should be caught up. Thanks for your patience!
