Flannel Friday Round-Up, 9/6/13
First off, I'd like to welcome a Flannel Friday first-timer into the fold! Christine at Felt Board Ideas shares her flannel board adaptation of 10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle. Thanks for joining the fun, Christine!
If you're planning a story time about apples in the next few weeks, then Lisa, Kathryn, and Kristie have you covered with a variety of fun activities. Lisa at Libraryland shares her version of Way Up High in the Apple Tree, where the pieces stick to a handy glove, and as a bonus, she shows off an adorable apple-themed craft with an accompanying rhyme about a wiggly worm. At Fun with Friends at Story Time, Kathryn presents several apple activities, including an apple-themed version of BINGO, an original rhyme for counting by twos, and an apple tree hand puppet. Inspired by Anna at Future Librarian Superhero, Kristie of Let the Wild Rumpus Start shares her version of Five Apples in a Basket.
Bridget at What is Bridget Reading? is also counting to five, but with those silly monkeys who always tease Mr Alligator. She also shares a monkey fingerplay she recently found through Perry Public Library.
At SLC Book Boy, sdbahlmann presents Nick Sharratt's Shark in the Park, which he cut out of cardstock and presented on an overhead projector.
Mollie of What Happens in Story Time... made an adorable flannel set for a rhyme called Pea Soup, which I found a long time ago and then never used.
Tara of Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends introduces us to a puppet version of Crispin, the dragon from Not Your Typical Dragon by Dan Bar-el, and shares the rest of her dragon-themed story time as well.
As other Flannel Friday participants have done, Lisa from Thrive After Three shows off her story time space this week, and explains how she sets it up for each of her groups.
Cate from Storytiming sings the praises of Sarah Silverman's interactive, video-based app, Uncle Sarah, and shares how she has used it in story time.
At Piper Loves the Library, Jane shares how she used sheep to cure a meltdown in the doctor's office waiting room and then shows off her flannel sheep, including one who is sheared!
Lastly, I'm Katie, and my post here at Story Time Secrets is a literacy game designed for beginning reader story time called Hippos in Hats, which explores consonant digraphs containing the letter H.
Next week, Flannel Friday will be hosted by Bridget. Don't forget - you can also follow Flannel Friday on Pinterest and Facebook, as well as at the official website. Have a great weekend!
