Flannel Friday Round-Up

Welcome to this week's Flannel Friday Round-Up.  There are a lot of great ideas, including some for Dig Into Reading.

Based on Books
This story always makes me laugh.  Check out Thrive After Three's saddle to help her retell Are You a Horse? by Andy Rash.  

Librarian Vs. Storytime pulls out a classic-The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Her pieces are unique in how she makes them (and would also make some good craft projects). 

Can you ever resist a flannelboard about colors?  Fun with Friends at Storytime has a fun color game based on A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni.  

With Kiddos @ the Library brings us Windblown by Edouard Manceau.  I hadn't ever seen this story before, but I love the simple shapes.

Dig Into Reading
While not flannel, if you are looking for a fun Dig Into Reading story time plan, check out Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends.  She has a mud puddle jump activity that I am sure everyone will be "borrowing".

If you missed it the first time, you will definitely want to check out the new and updated version of Worms at Read It Again!  I love how the worms "magically" move and the kids will too!

Random Flannel Fun
From a non-science person, I am always impressed when someone comes up with a quality STEM program (and gives me a plan to follow).  Check out Mrs. Andre's Library for How Do Your Flowers Grow?   The flannel flower parts are a good illustration of what flowers need to grow.

Just in time for the holiday weekend (in the U.S.), Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends has Five Little Firecrackers.  Her fireworks are really cool (almost magical).

Here at Libraryland, I have pulled out my Crazy Critters game.  This is a fun game for both story time and early literacy centers.

  2. I second that! With the holiday weekend and summer reading prep, the early placeholder is awesome.
    Here's a felt saddle I made to accompany one of my favorites Are You a Horse? I also have a pdf file for crafts and my first video of storytelling with puppets (you could also make a felt set for the story):

  3. Thanks for the early placeholder:-)

    How Does Your Flower Grow by Miss Angie @ Mrs. Andre's Library
    This is a S.T.E.M. inspired flannel that I will use in a summer program.
