Happy Flannel Friday! Many thanks to Mollie at What Happens in Storytime for hosting this week and graciously giving us latecomers some extra time. First full week back with grad school was a killer!
Like I mentioned last week, I took a great ALSC early childhood programming webinar a few months ago and am working hard to make more interactive flannels that let the audience participate more. Here’s a snowman I made for my preschoolers to build back in December. We oftentimes have 30+ kiddos at our storytimes, so I made a lot of extra birds. 🙂
(think “I Went to Visit a Farm One Day”)
I went walking in the snow one day.
I saw a snowman along the way.
I said, “Mr. Snowman, what do you need?
He said, “Two eyes so I can see!”
Repeat with “My nose, oh pretty please
Two arms, oh pretty please
Two mittens, oh pretty please
Three buttons on my belly
Two boots upon my feet
My scarf to stay warm and cozy
My top hat to look snazzy
Some birds to keep me company!”
