To start off, you will need a whole bunch of flannel shirts in different colors. This is a great excuse to raid your scrap bins! Ask the kids to come up and pick out their color shirt from the stack and add it to the flannelboard. As they add it, sing the song below.
To the tune of Mary Wore a Red Shirt
Lisa wore a purple shirt,
Purple shirt, purple shirt.
Lisa wore a purple shirt
All day long.
The next verse would be whatever color shirt the next child picks out. Since you are singing a song with names, it helps if the kids either wear nametags or if you introduce yourselves as they come in the room. To give credit where credit is due, this song came to me via Barabara Klipper from The Ferguson Library.
This week's Flannel Friday round-up is hosted by Future Librarian Superhero. Have a great week!
