Flannel Friday Round-Up

"Five White a Fluffy Sheep" from Fun with Friends at Storytime. Kathryn used the tune of my favorite storytime song, "Five Green and Speckled Frogs" to shear some sheep for a flannel story that is just right for April. She also suggests lots of wonderful sheepy books. I just love the tiny eyes on these sheep. As I've had fun with this song myself, it is a great example of the resource sharing that takes place each week on Flannel Friday!

"If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff from Libraryland. Lisa made a portable flannel story from a pizza box and detailed pieces that can be stored inside it to take for Outreach programs. Absolutely brilliant! The patterns are also shared.

"Six Little Men in a Flying Saucer" from Storytime with Miss Tara. This storytime has me singing "catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, save it for a rainy day." Don't miss Miss Tara's Letter of the Day letter match. It's such a great idea.

"Shape by Shape" by Suse MacDonald from Thrive After Three. Mrs. Shaia shares an inventive flannel story idea ala "Go Away Big Green Monster!" This simple idea can be adapted to lots of the guessing books out there. This flannel is perfect for Dig into Reading.

"Planting a Rainbow" by Lois Ehlert from Busy Crafting Mommy. Haven't we all wanted to make this into a flannel board? Check out the beautifully detailed flowers by BCM.

"Chook, Chook, Chook, Chook, Chook" nursery rhyme from What is Bridget Reading? Bridget shares lovely, detailed chicks and a hen to accompany this traditional rhyme. I'd love to use this for Mother Goose on the Loose.

"The Quilt that Grandma Made" from Story Time Secrets. Katie explores the letter Q through a cumulative story of a grandma making a quilt.

"Five Little Ladybugs" from Bird's Books. Kheineck's first Flannel Friday submission is one after my own heart. These ladybug fingerpuppets are versatile and adorable.

"Star Cookies" from Spectacular Story Time. Angela did some deep digging to come up with this flannel story from her childhood. The characters have wonderful facial expressions, so be sure to check it out. It would be a great addition to a folk tales or outer space theme.

"Five Little Caterpillars" from Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime. The original countdown rhyme has a surprise ending that's sure to delight the preschool crowd.

"Five Funny Clowns" from Miss Meg's Storytime. Miss Meg goes to the circus and shares lots of silly stories.

"Farm Pack" from Storytime Katie. Katie shares her pieces for "Bingo" and "Old MacDonald." I love the barn! The cow reminds me of an illustration... Sandra Boynton's maybe?

"Five Umbrellas" from Catch the Possibilities. Amy and a teen volunteer created these adorable umbrellas. Adding eyes really gives them some personality. This rhyme comes at the perfect time for my neck of the woods that had lots of rain this past week!

"Birds in a Tree" from Story Time with the Library Lady. LL shares a beautiful 3-D cherry blossom tree complete with colorful birds.

"Rocket" from Madigan Reads. Blast off with an adorable storytime anecdote.

"Little Mouse House" from Rachel's Reading Room. Rachel sewed the mouse houses so they are lift-the-flap. What a great idea!

"Pig's Picnic" by Keiko Kaszo from Time for Storytime. Leah shares her first story with the group. The vibrant, whimsical pieces will please even the toughest crowd!

And that is the round up for this week! Whew, thanks for sharing. Please be sure to check out the first timers posts and leave them a comment. You can check out the Flannel Friday blog to meet all the members and see past round-ups as well as upcoming events.
