Flannel Friday for July 14, 2017

Happy summertime Friday!

This one is from the great Wendy at Flannel Board Fun. Get out your golf clubs and get ready to talk about positional words! I LOVE this game and her philosophy of highlighting positions and relations instead of who won.

Tara at Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends has a birthday celebration happening right now! Check out her ten layer birthday cake!

I haven't been doing regular storytimes, so there are fewer flannel boards from me. But if you're interested in what I have been working on, check out my library's website for caregivers of children ages 0 to 5.

Uh Oh

So the site I was using to host my images has decided to start charging for that service. I've used them for eight years and was blindsided by this. No warning, no grace period, nothing.

It's going to take me a bit to get my photos uploaded somewhere else and fix ALL the links. Please bear with me. I'm not looking forward to this lengthy process, but I'm also not going to pay ransom money.

Wish me luck!

Flannel Friday Roundup - April 21

Woooo! Friday! Let's see what our collective creative brains came up with this week in Flannel Land!

Three Jellyfish (Wendy from Flannel Board Fun)
You need to check out these jellyfish and rhyme! This is the perfect addition to your summertime ocean themes.



Paintbrushes (Nikki from heytherelibrary)
This is an Inspired By post for rainbow/spring/color/art storytimes. This game will get those little brains working on memory recall, as well as colors.


Shapes Poem (Anne from so tomorrow)
Anne is mixing National Poetry Month with STEM and storytime! I love the idea of using containers of different shapes to give the poem a sensory aspect, too.


Dirty Diaper (Mr. Keith from Felt-tastic Flannelboard)
Almost everyone has heard the agonizing cries of a baby forced to have their diaper changed. Mr. Keith's distracting song will work with changing clothes and baths, too.

Mouse Mess (Me!)
My coworkers designed these environmental print flannel boards to celebrate One Book 4 Colorado and the book choice, Mouse Mess



Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes (Tara from Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends)
Everyone loves Pete the Cat! Especially when he has delicious cupcakes!





It's an Orange Aardvark (Tara from Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends)
I'm in awe of this brilliant flannel retelling of this book by Michael Hall.
