It's Friday, which means it is time for some great Flannel Friday ideas!
Just in time for Halloween, Anne at So Tomorrow brings us Five Little Pumpkins.
If you are looking for an adorable monster to use with your flannelboards, check out Dorothy's Polka Dotty Monster. Dorothy has asked for help with a poem or rhyme to go with it, so get your creative juices flowing and help her out!
Do you need another Halloween flannelboard? The Perfect Pumpkin at Miss Courtney Meets Bobo is a great interactive story.
How do you explain the concept of scary to small children? Kay at Storytime ABC's gives us a great way to do so with a poem and a giggling ghost.
If you have missed the ongoing discussion lately on the Flannelboard Friday Facebook page, you will definitely want to check out Sarah's It Started with a Sneeze to see her full sneezing story time.
Mis Mary Liberry shows us how to create a robot out of shapes, while pulling out a whole bunch of early childhood skills like print awareness, sorting, and learning vocabulary. This would also make a great craft!
It always makes me excited to see Pete the Cat as the first flannelboard on a page. (I am a HUGE Pete the Cat fan!) Busy Crafting Mommy shows us her Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, her rendition of Dog in Boots, and a flannelized version of How Do I Put It On? Altogether, you have a great clothing story time!
Pete the Cat also appears at 1234 More Storytimes as we look for his missing buttons in the flannelboard game Button Button, Who's Got the Button.
Notes from the Story Room shows us how to create reversible stick puppets for a retelling of "The Fox and the Crab Have a Race". It is part of her upcoming family story time on "tails", which I think is a really interesting theme.
The Library Lady reminds us all that imagination is a powerful tool and that we as educators can show the parents ways to do this. She gives us the actions for "On Halloween Night" to use with our groups.
How many of us can actually say that we have a flannelboard that will work with the letter X? Storytime Kate gives us X-Rays! Yes, they really look like x-rays, but would work great for a letter X story time, a doctor story time, or one about parts of the body.
Amanda brings us 2 bird story times at Trails & Tales. The first is about water birds (and I love the craft idea). The second is about raptors.
Mother Goose goes pink at Piper Loves the Library. She gives us a really interesting idea to support breast cancer awareness month in story time.
My Tigers are in the World Series so I had to find something with a baseball in it. You can play the Ball Guessing Game at Libraryland.
Enjoy! If you haven't been here before, make sure you stop by the Flannel Friday Pinterest page or our Flannel Friday blog for more information. Next week Trails and Tails will be hosting our Thanksgiving Extravaganza. Start pulling together your turkey flannelboards now!
