Flannel Friday: There’s a Parade In the Middle of the Street

This week’s Flannel Friday is hosted by the amazing Mollie at Miss Mollie’s Storytime Fun! Check there later today for the Round Up!

I know we’re early for the Fourth of July, but this is what I had ready in time for Friday this week! Fourth of July is one of those holidays that I think it would be fun to celebrate in storytime…at least until I try to pull some good stuff together and it’s a struggle to find what I want! Every other year or so I give it a go at my baby storytime.

I made this clip art set a few years ago, and revised this week it so the colors were even more Fourth-of-July-y.

Yes, it does seem as if nobody is sure which direction the parade is going.

Sing it to, “There’s a Hole in the Middle of the Road.”

There’s a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a firetruck, there’s a firetruck
There’s a firetruck in the middle of the street.

There’s a horse and a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a horse and a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a horse, there’s a horse
There’s a horse in the middle of the street.

There’s a clown and a horse and a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a clown and a horse and a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a clown, there’s a clown,
There’s a clown in the middle of the street.

There’s a flag and a clown and a horse and a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a flag and a clown and a horse and a firetruck in the middle of the street
There’s a flag, there’s a flag,
There’s a flag in the middle of the street.

It’s a parade!

    Well, I’m definitely stealing this one! What a great idea. Your blog has been such a godsend for me as I’ve started stockpiling my own arsenal of story time tricks. Thank you for writing such consistently wonderful posts. 🙂

    Katie, you are so kind. It makes me feel good to know you find my blog a help, especially since you do such a great job on your own blog and with your own storytimes!!! Keep up the good work!

    Hmmm, the 4th of July parade goes in front of my house. I might have to bring this out for the waiting crowds!

    I, too, love the idea of “Fourth of July” storytime but wind up having a hard time finding materials! I love your parade idea though — it’s so cute!

    This is great to use for any patriotic holiday! I’m always short on ideas for them, so this will be a big help.

  6. Melissa says:

    Thanks ladies! I tried hard to find a marching band image, but couldn’t find one that would match the style of the others. I will keep looking! I will have to do a post with some of the other materials I’ve gathered for the Fourth…there’s not much!

    Hi!

    I was unable to open the pdf file, for some reason. I’ve spent hours trying to find usable images, and can not locate the horse or the clown. Please help!

    Thanks,
    Maria
