Flannel Friday Round-Up

It's time for the Flannel Friday round-up!  There is a lot o great stuff this week so take a moment and check out the links below.

I like almost any flannelboard where you can change the color of the pieces.  Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime did one such flannelboard using pigs and pancakes this week.  The rhyme would be a welcome addition to any story time. 

Here at Libraryland, I show off my craft stick butterfly props that I have used in a number of my story times.

Based on the Book
Jane at Piper Loves the Library flannelizes a number of Olivier Dunrea's books this week and blends them together to create an outreach event.  The effect is quite neat.

Kristen at Library Village shows off the classic story of Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.  Not only are they jumping on the bed, but they are wearing pajamas!

Fizz Boom Read
Kelly at Ms. Kelly at the Library has a great flower flannelboard and rhyme.  Not only is it a fun "5 Little" rhyme, but it emphasizes that flowers need water to grow.  This is a good addition for STEAM story times or Fizz Boom Read.

"Inspired By" Flannelboards
Lisa at Thrive After Three brings us Five Little Minions.  This post was originally inspired by Jane at Piper Loves the Library.  You will definitely want to check this one out because Lisa uses t-shirt transfer to make her pieces.  It's a great idea!

After Guerrilla Storytime at ALA Annual 2014, Amy at The Show Me Librarian used a rhyme that she learned from Rebecca Dunn to create her pieces.  I love that she pulls out real bubbles to help sing the rhyme!

Lisa at Story Time with the Library Lady shows off a new song called Slippery Fish.  I hadn't seen this one before and it is great fun.  You will want some progressively larger felt pieces to put this one together.

Thanks for stopping by!  Next week's round-up will be hosted by Mollie at What Happens in Storytime.  Also, start saving up your shark flannelboards as Shark Week will be August 15.
