Flannel Friday-The Deep Blue Sea

The Deep Blue Sea by Audrey Wood is a great cumulative color story, which makes it ideal to transfer into flannel.  It helps if you tell this one with a blue flannelboard so the flannelboard can represent the sea.  While I am not going to tell the whole story, there are some excerpts under my pictures.

There's a nut, a brown nut
on a green tree
on a red rock
in the middle of the deep blue sea.

Until a little white cloud
turns dark and gray...
Which makes the fishies come up to play.

For the cloud, I used a piece of white felt and a piece of gray and glued them together in a cloud shape.  When the little white cloud turns dark and gray, I can just flip it over.

To create a complete story time, add this title to Ten Little Fish by Audrey Wood for an "under the sea" theme or Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. for a color story time.

Visit Notes from the Story Room for this week's round-up.  For more information about Flannel Friday, check out the great new blog.


  1. Very colorful flannel! And great suggestions for pairing the book up with other books for totally different storytimes. :o) Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is beautiful and I don't think I have ever seen the book. thanks!

  3. Flipping the cloud is a great idea. It will cut down on how many pieces are floating around.
